Geekers - An easy way to deal with sorry, you can't view or download this file at this time when downloading files on Google Drive


Google Drive is one of the online data storage media owned by Google which provides stable download speeds, even if it is accessed from any network and in a different place. Apart from that, Google Drive cloud storage also provides 15GB of storage space for free.


In order to avoid abuse, Google provides a download quota limit via Google Drive every 24 hours. If you have exceeded the specified download quota capacity, a message "Sorry, you can't view or download this file at this time" will appear.



If the message appears then you will not be able to download the file, even the download process that is currently running will also stop. But don't worry, this article will solve this problem. Immediately, see the steps below.


How to Overcome Sorry, you can't view or download this file at this time.


1. First, please open the web browser that you use on your PC or laptop.



2. Then, please open the Google Drive file link that you want to download.


3. When you want to download a file and when it is downloaded a message appears Sorry, you can't view or download this file at this time or Sorry, you can't view or download this file now.
