Google Drive is insanely popular, but it can still experience problems. When you try downloading a file or exceed the download quota for that file, Google Drive will pop up and say that “you can’t view or download this file at this time.”
Google Drive’s free plan is limiting, as it restricts you from downloading new files after 24 downloads. Thankfully, there is a way around this: you can continue to upload files by moving the downloaded folder into the ‘Onedrive’ folder on your computer.
This article explains how to bypass the Google Drive download limit in case you get “Google Drive quota exceeded” or “sorry you can’t view or download this file at this time. Follow the step-by-step guide to bypass the download limit” errors.
How to Bypass Google Drive Download Limit
- Open the file you want to download on your computer.
- Sign in to your Google Drive account if prompted to do so.
- Replace the “uc?id=” with “file/d/” in the file URL and press Enter.
