The path/restricted_content error is expected from /2/files/download for files with restricted content, per the documentation:

If you believe you have files that have been incorrectly flagged, please contact support.

I can not create a shared link to this file, ab.rar.

 

This is an empty RAR file, created by WinRAR.

 

Type `od -x ab.rar`

Output:

0000000 6152 2172 071a cf00 7390 0000 000d 0000
