I just did a direct download on my iPhone for a couple of files and it was fine. Perhaps it's something with the file type in question? What type of file(s) are you having this problem with?

Hey there @jdub666,

Would you mind trying to open the link on your mobile using d=0 instead and let me know if you're able to preview the content? If you get an error message then please send a screenshot of this, excluding any personal info.

Also, are you able to open the link as it is on another device? For example, on your computer through the web browser.

Let me know what you find and we'll go from there - thanks!
