Hi @farhanali,

The description of your problem is very thin. I should confess, can't be sure what exactly you mean. I assume you have created a shared link as described in corresponding topic. Such links are preview links by default (i.e. ending with "?dl=0") and in the preview you can download pointed content, if you want.

You can transform received link to a download link (replace the trailing "?dl=0" to "?dl=1") or to a direct access (raw) link (replace the trailing "?dl=0" to "?raw=1").

Hope this helps.

Hi @farhanali,

Can you clarify, what exactly isn't working now (what have changed, some examples)? 🧐
