    I've been reading around about this.

    So far, I understand I have to deal (among other stuff) with this

    I just want to upload/restore a single file to google drive (app data backup) on each user own drive. I don't quite understand why must I register and get some code (clientID) since I'd been using the user's drive.

    I just want to confirm that using the oauth2 procedure and initializing googledrive.bas with my own clientID won't be uploading all users files into my own drive.

    This is exactly the purpose of OAuth2. It allows the user to authorize your app to access his or her data.

    That's true.
