Any people here experts in Google Drive or at least understand it more than me? Hardly ever used it before.

I have a Team Drive and have uploaded around 1TB give or take. I am sharing this with a few people - not that many (yet!).

However, we are regularly getting "download quota exceeded". What on earth are the limits and is there a way around this?

At present it is quite a pain! Any input appreciated.

Thanks,

TassieNZ :)

Hi,

Google drive download limit for single file is around 700gb but in some cases it gets fluctuated.

To download that file get sharable link open in window or device click on add to my drive (The drive icon with + sign in top right corner).
Should be added that file to different account. This way the file will available to download..

Another way use this website.

Thanks. I'm actually sharing one large folder with sub-folders. Still, surprised that the limit reached. That website looks very interesting. Thanks for that.

I use Google Drive extensively and unfortunately, there is no definitive answer. Normally it's 750GB per day but it also put a limit on the number of people who can download file per 24 hours. Again no specific number but on average about 50 people especially for large files.

On top of that once your file gets flagged restrictions pop up more frequently.

Shouldn't use Google drive for general purpose file hosting, it's more for backups or files which doesn't need to be accessed frequently.

Maybe try Google cloud storage, S3 or something like OVH hosting - they offer decent storage plans with unlimited bandwidth with speed limits.

In fact, I tested it myself and found that it was possible to download up to 1.5TB capacity from a shared drive and no more. (Criteria: By downloading data shared by one person)

In other words, the conclusion is that large file sharing does not fit Google Drive.

You'd better look for another file hosting service :)

LOL Thanks. I have to say that my ui8.net offer was not really designed to download the complete set, which is massive! Attempting to mirror to mega pro at the moment though. :) Slow process! :)

Me too think it's better to use Mega. :)
Mega has a little more freedom to share files.

Ps. I'm not promoting Mega. :ROFLMAO: The fact that I learned after using various cloud services.

i would suggest to use something else other than mega. wasabi or may be buyvm. $5/TB (no b/w limit)

It depends, Google offer unlimited storage for photos if you enable photo optimization but if you don't want to compress photos than with free account you can only use up to 15GB which is shared between Drive, Gmail etc,

Thank you, but my point is whether the viewability is limited or not, since I upload video and use for my site, but my website only has a few hundred traffic per day so I haven't seen the video limit yet.

If you want to share file privately or publically I think following website is quite amazing.
And if somebody knows what Script that website using please share here. Thanks..
