RemoteItem resource type

The remoteItem resource indicates that a driveItem references an item that exists in another drive. This resource provides the unique IDs of the source drive and target item.

DriveItems with a non-null remoteItem facet are resources that are shared, added to the user's OneDrive, or on items returned from hetrogenous collections of items (like search results).

Note: Unlike with folders in the same drive, a driveItem moved into a remote item may have its id value changed.
