hello and welcome to the forum,

have you seen https://github.com/rclone/rclone/issues/2338

based on that log,
for m-W:, its client_id is not the owner of up-stress-1080p.rar, correct?

I am using the --drive-acknowledge-abuse as it is in my command which has worked up until recently.

yes, i understand that.

i am trying to figure out if this is a rclone bug, a change on google, or some other reason.
and if not me, than for others, trying to gather the needed info

that is why i am asking,

for the client_id of m-W:
is that the owner of up-stress-1080p.rar or not?

yes it is the owner.

perhaps the recent update to v1.58.1 introduced an issue?

It happens on 1.57 also so I tried the newest release and it has the same issue.

i think this is the next step

Can you check with -vv --dump headers that rclone is adding the ?acknowledgeAbuse flag into the URL of the GET request?

It is.

xxx?alt=media&acknowledgeAbuse=true

I tried it 4 times and the 2nd time it downloaded the file but not the 3rd or 4th time. I did rename the local file before trying the 3rd and 4th times
All had the acknowledgeAbuse=True part.

So still seems to be something weird going on.

might just be a glitch, something that might go away on its own.

if not, i think we have enough info for someone more expert with gdrive.

This has the feeling of a Google drive glitch to me - hopefully it won't persist.

I have same issue here, and I write a python script using Google drive API to check what happened, the result is:

url:
https://www.googleapis.com/drive/v3/files/10Og4rlnIbME6hLglgVxb3BXv_LsksaF4?supportsAllDrives=true&acknowledgeAbuse=true&alt=media

headers:
{'accept': '/', 'accept-encoding': 'gzip, deflate', 'user-agent': '(gzip)', 'x-goog-api-client': 'gdcl/2.47.0 gl-python/3.9.10'}

Exception:
Encountered 403 Forbidden with reason "cannotDownloadAbusiveFile"

I suggest you go here

https://issuetracker.google.com/

And search for a bug, or make a new one as I think this looks very much like a google bug.
