Troubles accessing Google Drive

Post by *tomcrayfish »

I have noticed a strange/different behaviour when accessing Google Drive (Win 10, 64) via TC plugin approx. 3 days ago.
When clicking on my Gdrive in TV, I am prompted to select the Google account. When selecting Google account I end up on the screen where I need to grant the access to my Gdrive. However the button Allow is in grey and I cannot click on it and as a result cannot access the Gdrive.

I tried several versions of TC and Cloud plugin on 3 different computers and 2 different Google accounts with the same result. It seems to me that the problem is Google side...

Any recommendations on this issue how to solve it?

Thanks!

Then maybe you should try the chromium version: http://www.totalcommander.ch/win/fs/cloudplugin_chromium1.10.rar

Just curious - how did you find a that version? I cannot find it mentioned anywhere.

It was linked as a build for Windows XP in the very first post here: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=41512 when 2.00 version was released. And the link was removed after releasing 2.10 version, possibly after my report that the latest version works OK in Windows XP.

Better use an external browser for the login, because it is kept up to date.

We don't know which plugin versions and which browsers were reported by 2tomcrayfish.

When a folder name in Google Drive includes a slash (/) character, Total Commander has troubles in opening this folder.
So, do not use slash characters in folder names inside Google Drive.

Indeed both slashes and backslashes will cause problems because Windows uses them as path delimiters.
