About a year and a half ago, I sent an e-mail from Gmail with a large .ZIP archive (~90MB). Because the attachment was too large for Gmail, it offered to send it by creating a link to Google Drive.
So, I send that e-mail, and the recipient got it and downloaded that archive from Google Drive.
Now, a year and a half later, I need that archive with pictures, but misplaced it somewhere on my laptop, and the recipient does not have those pictures either.
I found the e-mail in my Sent folder in Gmail, clicked on archive.zip, and got the following message:
Sorry, the file you have requested does not exist. Make sure that you have the correct URL and the file exists.
My question is: Is it possible to somehow retrieve that archive.zip with pictures (is it saved anywhere on Google Drive) or is it gone forever?
