To remove all external shares with the exception of a single user, you need to do the following:

Find all the files shared out and exclude those files shared with the particular external user.
(See example below)

GAT+: Remove all permissions on Google Drive shares with an exception 1

Select all the files returned

GAT+: Remove all permissions on Google Drive shares with an exception 2

Select the File operations button and click on Remove permissions option.

GAT+: Remove all permissions on Google Drive shares with an exception 3

A pop-up window will be displayed.

Under the Action field select Remove All External Shares and click Run.

GAT+: Remove all permissions on Google Drive shares with an exception 4

Additionally select:

Report only – to generate report only on those files – without action to take effect. (click on (?) beside Report only)
Notify local users – option to notify the users (owners of the files) for the changes to be made.

The action will take an effect and it will be reported in the Admin log.
