Google Drive API Key switch



Reading through these steps I originally missed the tidbit at the end:


The next connection that you make to Google Drive from StableBit CloudDrive's New Drive tab will use your new API keys.

So, to be clear, does this mean I am unable to switch an existing drive to use my newly setup API keys. I went through this process 3 or 4 days ago and I just signed back into the Google Cloud Console and looking at the API monitoring sections it shows no usage, which is what triggered me to go reread the document. 

I am looking to confirm if the changes made in the ProviderSettings.json will not kick in until I make a NEW DRIVE connection and what that means for a drive that was mounted/connected BEFORE going through this process.

Basically is there a way to use my keys with a drive that was original setup using the applications embedded pool of API keys or will I have to create a new drive and transfer everything from one to the other?

Forgive me if this seems like a stupid question, I know enough to be dangerous so I cannot imagine why I would have to go through a transfer process but that could just be my ignorance showing. 


Thanks in advance all!
