Gmail seems to have deleted the attachment of an email I had sent to myself a while after I sent it. The reason Gmail hints at is that the file is detected as a virus (it's not): is there any way to get access to that file?
The "Learn more" link redirects me to https://support.google.com/mail/answer/25760?hl=en&ctx=mail, which says:
What happens if a virus is found?
If Gmail detects a virus on an attachment, we reject the message and notify the sender. If a message that’s already in your account has an infected attachment, you won’t be able to download it.
If an attachment you're trying to send is infected with a virus, Gmail will display an error message to tell you, but it won't clean the file. To send the message without that attachment, click the link in the error message that says Remove attachment and send.
If Gmail detects that you're trying to send an infected attachment, try running your anti-virus software in case your hard drive is infected. If you don't have anti-virus software, you might consider purchasing or installing one of the popular applications so you can protect your computer and information from viruses.
If I try to forward the email, I cannot forward the attachment:
Is there anyway I can retrieve access to my file?
