Ownership of embedded map on website

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello, I hope this is the correct place to ask. 

We have an embedded map on our website that was initially created many years ago and constantly updated on one of the office PCs.

 

https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=18SugRoJxoNNpPWzZBTDM7SIS0cw&ll=-37.815146308366316%2C144.9...

 

I recently set up a new google drive account on the same PC and it has now wiped out our edit access to the map. 

 

We have tried any old known google account to gain access but cant find which account owns the map without success.

 

How do I find the account associated with the map?

How do I transfer it to our "new" account?

 

Thx

Hi @Mat L

 

themap with the mid-parameter as part  of  your above URL is  a  MyMap and has nothings to do  with  GooglmyBusiness 

 

As permy own knowledge  as  Maps TC I'm pretty sure there is  no optionto figure out  the credentials of this map.

But  you (as well as anybody else too) can make a copy and  can later  edit  or enhance the copied map for any new  & actual  purpose.

hereas as  example a copy I just made in order to demonstrate  what I meant:
