We have tried pinging Google Drive website using our server and the website returned the above results. If drive.google.com is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Google Drive - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as googledrive.com

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Kenneth Wong · 28 March 2014 - 10:17

Have not been able to access Google Drive for the past hour. It seems selective. Some colleagues from other regions can get in.

Getting an error message when trying to open spreadsheets. Docs are ok.

Jean Carlo · 19 March 2014 - 12:08

Down again. Google Docs is becoming more and more unreliable. You guys know of an alternative service?

Derek Pizzuto · 19 March 2014 - 12:08

Google Sheets is down in Shrewsbury MA now... certainly seems like a bug, not a feature. : )

John Muczynski · 19 March 2014 - 12:07

502. That’s an error. The server encountered a temporary error and could not complete your request.

Liz Estrada · 19 March 2014 - 02:09

Since about noon EDT on 3/17/2014, I cannot edit or save any document on Google Drive on my Kindle Fire. Getting the following message:

"Google Drive encountered an error. If reloading the page doesn't help, please report the error.

We're sorry, a server error occurred. Please wait a bit and try reloading your spreadsheet. To learn more about Google Drive, please visit our help center.

Old version of spreadsheets do not load and create error code 502, new sheets open fine. Also Gmail chat does not load.

Roland Abalos Jr · 17 March 2014 - 09:51

i Can access my drive, and google docs but spreadsheets result in the 502 error. Tried various browsers with same result across all. I was hoping Google would have better info.

Mark Madonna · 17 March 2014 - 09:50

Getting the 504 Error mentioned by many others. Google Drive will not load spreadsheets -- neither for existing files, nor for creating a new file. Yikes

RobRoy Fingerhead · 17 March 2014 - 09:50

Just had a earthquate in CA - wondering if that is the reason for the service outage

Jessie Winitzky · 17 March 2014 - 09:50

Deborah Daigle · 17 March 2014 - 09:49

Google Drive spreadsheet files are not accessible. I am able to open the text documents jsut not anything that is a spreadsheet. Problem existing for 30 minutes now.

Jason Hurlbut · 17 March 2014 - 09:48

Google Drive says I'm not connected to the internet and I can't reach my page. This is incorrect.

Michael Holt · 17 March 2014 - 09:47

Also getting the 502 error. Can see list of files but cannot open any of them. Have tried using multiple internet connections.

Garett Waters · 17 March 2014 - 09:46

"Please try again in 30 seconds. That’s all we know." Pity. I was hoping Google would know more...

Problems loading a large selection of spreadsheets that are both mine and shared with me. I can see everything in my Drive, though!

Unable to open my spreadsheets on Google Drive, get 502 errors all the time.

Elaine L Baker · 17 March 2014 - 09:40

I am able to access my Drive, but I am unable to open Spreadsheets. Each time I attempt to open spreadsheets I receive an error 502. I am able to open documents, presentations and .pngs. This seems to be exclusive to spreadsheets. This has been occurring for approximately 30 mins.

Tom Ross · 17 March 2014 - 09:39

Google drive spreadsheets are not loading. Error message to try again later. Tried again later, and still not working.

Jeff Light · 17 March 2014 - 09:38

Time to start migrating documents off Google drive. The daily outages and errors are inexcusable.

Cyn Lui · 17 March 2014 - 09:37

spreadsheet won't load.... it said 'loading', but eventually timeout with error 502.

Ginni Stanton · 17 March 2014 - 09:37

I'm only having issues with opening spreadsheets, documents are fine but I can't load ANY spreadsheet

Kyle Hovan · 17 March 2014 - 09:36

I knew I should not depend on Google free service site.. Drive. There goes all my work for nothing.

Randy Gallagher · 17 March 2014 - 09:36

On the horn with them and I am waiting for "the next available" agent to talk to. I bet it will be a long line

Sophie Charbonneau · 17 March 2014 - 09:35

502 error here... right when I have to sent stuff on a 2 o'clock deadline !!! :(

Terri Elofson Bly · 17 March 2014 - 09:34

Peter Fontana · 17 March 2014 - 09:33

GoogleSheets down for us in Houston too... were dead in the water without it company wide. Any acknowledgement from google's side yet that anyones found?

Google Drive is down for me too! Same error message as everyone else... error 502

Rochelle Jaques Korpi · 17 March 2014 - 09:31

Sheets down - 502 server error - business depends on google sheets across multiple states.

Robin Daniel · 17 March 2014 - 09:29

I can "open" a Google Spreadsheet so I can see it- but cannot edit, download, or otherwise work with it. I WAS ABLE to download the parent folder with the two Google spreadsheets intact from the Google Drive file management page.

Sajid Reshamwala · 17 March 2014 - 09:28

Spreadsheets down with a 502 error. Will occasionally load the first page of a sheet, but tabs aren't working.

Unable to modify spread sheet in London UK at 4:15 pm UK time. Simply does not accept input. Does not look like "up and running to me!"

James Thompson · 17 March 2014 - 09:25

Same error here... Hope they fix this soon as my business depends on it.

Daniel Muñoz · 17 March 2014 - 09:23

"502. That’s an error.

Been down for 10 minutes. Spreadsheets and Drive home. Documents work, though.

Daniel Beacham · 17 March 2014 - 09:22

Error 502 (Server Error) for the past 20 minutes or so when trying to open any files.

Andrew Wencer · 17 March 2014 - 09:21

No access to spreadsheets either. Keep getting Error 502. Naturally this is the worst possible day for this.

Randy Gallagher · 17 March 2014 - 09:19

If your file was made for offline use would we be able to make it work?

Jeanny Wang · 17 March 2014 - 09:18

Google drive spreadsheet is also down for me. Opening an existing file doesn't work, creating a new file works, but I keep getting pushed offline.

Meredith Brock Tucker · 17 March 2014 - 09:18

Our whole team is also getting the 502 error message right now when trying to open any spreadsheet.

Francisco Davila · 17 March 2014 - 09:16

Getting the following message when I try to open spreadsheets

502. That’s an error. The server encountered a temporary error and could not complete your request. Please try again in 30 seconds. That’s all we know.

Gracie Aghapour · 17 March 2014 - 09:16

Accessing & changing docs within google drive has been halted for my company for the last 20 minutes or so, though we can get to the Drive framing page.

Jocelyn M Paul · 17 March 2014 - 09:14

I also cannot access spreadsheets. Everything else seems to be working fine, though.

Karen Lo · 17 March 2014 - 09:12

Google drive seems to be down. Getting "Error 502. That’s an error." message

Stanley Epstein · 14 March 2014 - 00:54

Cant access Google Drive for lat 5 hours. Tried using Chrome, IE & Firefox. Result same... just hangs "Loading...."

Steven Jones · 11 March 2014 - 09:45

checked internet speed, only Google apps aren't working for me right now

Mick Rustichelli · 4 March 2014 - 02:32

What a let down... I am a Google reseller and I am too embarrassed to suggest Google Docs a credible alternative to Microsoft, it is way to unstable and unreliable in the business work.

Google should just stick to what they are good at... Spying on us.

Ken Wong · 25 February 2014 - 15:23

I am getting this all night: The server encountered an error. Please try again later.Dismiss and the activity section is not showing, my location is Hong Kong, anyone having this problem too??? This is the first for me!!!

Jon Harris · 24 February 2014 - 10:58

502. That’s an error.

Not working for me right now, can't open folders, and when I try to edit a file I can't scroll down or click on anything.

Kendra Miller · 21 February 2014 - 09:09

Google docs won't work for me in Chrome right now. Once I open a doc, I can't scroll down or edit anything. It was working fine two days ago, and the problems started yesterday. Is there a widespread problem? Or is there something I can do with my browser to fix this?

Jen Adams · 20 February 2014 - 15:11

Wont let me access either... Getting: GoogleDrive Resource unavailable.

Matt Motta · 20 February 2014 - 15:10

If you have the Drive app for your desktop, you can access all of your files and they'll open in your browser!

Mojdeh Marashi · 20 February 2014 - 15:04

Same here it keeps telling me the server has encountered an error. Try later. How long will this take?

Anthony Sheehan · 20 February 2014 - 15:01

Its down for me too. Some recent files are showing but nothing else.. Do I need to panic yet?

Vincent Adams · 20 February 2014 - 14:57

I'm having the same problem as many people commenting here, but was able to get in at www.googledrive.com. Give it a try!

Donna Wolf Leyens · 20 February 2014 - 14:56

Now nothing will load. If you're listening, Google, "try again later" is infuriating when you need to get work done and you thought your documents were safe on your site and you can't access them.

James Robinson · 20 February 2014 - 14:56

502. That’s an error.

The server encountered a temporary error and could not complete your request. Please try again in 30 seconds. That’s all we know.

Donna Wolf Leyens · 20 February 2014 - 14:45

Very frustrating. Need access to my files and can't get in. It's not completely out, but certain files won't load.

Kathryn MacDonald · 20 February 2014 - 14:42

Data on my google drive is not loading with constant try back messages.

Zak Gunnells · 20 February 2014 - 11:18

There appears to be an issue with Google Drive Documents loading. According to Google Support, they are tracking the issue, but have not declared an official outage. Google Apps Dashboard link for tracking: www.google.com/appsstatus#hl=en&v=status&ts=1392922866777

Jock Piel · 20 February 2014 - 11:09

We are also experiencing difficulties. Shared spreadsheets are not accessible. Receiving this error message: "Google Drive encountered an error. If reloading the page doesn't help, please report the error." Come on man!!!

Andrew John Bayles · 20 February 2014 - 11:05

I'm getting intermittent access to both Google Drive/Docs and Google Keep. I'm able to open documents sometimes, but sometimes not, and editing gives me consistent server errors.

Janice Gjertsen-Caillet · 20 February 2014 - 10:50

Getting a error as well. What is up with Google Drive? Does this happen often? How can our company utilize this server if it goes down. That's crazy.

Donna Wolf Leyens · 20 February 2014 - 10:32

I am also having trouble getting into my documents on google drive - it says "loading" for a long time, and then "server encountered an error, try again later" (or something like that)

Liz Beck · 20 February 2014 - 10:29

I keep getting an error message. Whats going on is anyone else having this problem?

Nick Campbell · 20 February 2014 - 10:21
