Google Drive (v2) - Missing refresh token

During the setup of Google Drive (v2), you may encounter an error saying the refresh token is missing. This indicates that there is already another Google Drive (v2) destination set up and authorized, so you will need to revoke its access to create a new Google Drive (v2) destination.

Please note that performing the following actions will disconnect all sites that are connected to this Google account using the Google Drive (v2) remote destination.
