Access denied to downloading any file 0 Recommended Answers 43 Replies 606 Upvotes
Last edited 7/2/19
Whenever I try to download anything from my Google Drive; I get error "Access was denied". I have attached a screenshot of the message (error 403). This happens only on my WiFi on computer devices. I can download on my phone, but all 3 computers in my house get this same error message. I read somewhere that it could be cookies, but what I'm on now is completely new, how could it already have cookies that'd block it?
This isn't a shared file either. I have ownership over it yet I don't have access.
I haven't been able to find a solution online, and I've had this issue for a while. I actually moved over to Dropbox for a while as I figured it'd get fixed over time. Any help would be great.
