Discussion Error 403 with plexdrive4

Hi all!

First of all: Great work! I do so much appreciate the work of this community.

I encountered a problem. Since yesterday I can't play back any file from my hetzner - gdrive combo. Plexdrive4 is getting a 403 error. I googled it and the answer I found was: "Most likely an API ban." But I thought using plexdrive will prevent API bans?

Is that possible? How can I check the API ban for sure.

Best,
Marcus

Should use /unionfs although using that plexdrive folder still shouldn't cause issues.
Do you have media analysis enabled on your server?

Try and download one of your files through the drive website, if it gives you an error that's how you confirm you have an api ban

Media analysis is disabled, but I cannot download the file through my web browser from google drive. So I do have an API ban. How can I avoid this in the future?
Is there a way to enable media analysis at any point in time and not get banned?

If your using plexdrive your fine, questions is do you have /mnt/gdrive up? If anything on your system is scanning and scans that; that's how it would occur. PlexDrive never gets an api ban in my use.

/mnt/gdrive is up, but no library is scanning it. My libraries are pointing to either /yourcomputer/mnt/plexdrive or directly to /Plexdrive/. Perhaps the Second option is causing problems?

No, it wouldn't. That's a legacy option i left because we had all kind of permission issues. Just let the time pass, reboot and see if it happens again. Also, goto the google console and see what time your api spiked; might help also :D Danke!
