I just set up a folder in Google Drive and loaded up a lot of files from my One Drive. I can go in a see the files but when  I try to download any files, I get this error message:
Access to doc-04-bs-docs.googleusercontent.com was denied
You don't have authorization to view this page.
HTTP ERROR 403

In another post the user said the following, which describes my situation exactly, but there was no response:
I have this same problem and YES, I am using two accounts but Google always defaults to my primary account and when I switch to my secondary one I am denied.  How do I go to my secondary account FIRST?  This is so frustrating because I just uploaded a zillion files and now can't use them!!

Wow!

Why Google doesn't fix this?!?

I am logged in with different gmail accounts. Every time I launch my gmail, it, with no reason, keeps opening one gmail account (main account) that is not the one linked to my drive. So I switch to my main account, then ask for Google Drive. Doing this, I can open AND DOWNLOAD the Docx files in it but I CAN'T DOWNLOAD pdf, Images, etc files......

I'm having the exact same issue -- and this just started. I've never run into this before. I've been using two Google accounts -- one personal, one for work -- for several years. Suddenly today I can't download files from the work account. Can someone please let me know what's going on and how to resolve this?
