Why is Google Drive showing download quota is exceeded?

Great question! The error you're seeing related to having exceeded the number of maximum downloads or playbacks is coming from Google Drive and is typically caused by the settings on your internet browser. There are a few ways to solve this issue:

  1. Ensure that cookies are allowed. This primarily affects those using Google Chrome as their browser. Google Chrome is set up to block all cookies by default. In order to change that, go into your Google Chrome preferences and select "Allow all Cookies" under the "Cookies and Other Site Data" tab.
  2. Try a different browser. If you're repeatedly seeing this error, try using a different internet browser. Google Chrome seems to be the browser most affected by this issue, so try an alternate browser such as Firefox, Safari, or Microsoft Edge.
  3. Sign in to/create a Google account. In many cases, this error can be solved by simply signing into a Google account. If you don't already have an account, you can create one for free at google.com.
