Question Storing softwares in Google drive: But the softwares aren't working after downloading for use.

DVDs wear out. So we have to copy the softwares time to time into new DVDs.

I thought the permanent way to store the softwares would be to upload them to Google drive.

I uploaded the softwares. When I downloaded them and tried to install on my desktop, it showed error message. I don't remember exactly but it was something to the effect 'The setup file is missing'. So I am unable to use the softwares.

Is there any solution to this? Is there a way around the problem? Does this happen in Dropbox also?

Google is against piracy.. as it should be. DVD is not supposed to be copied.

These decisions are taken by colleges. And the board of technical education has no objection.

open the downloaded files in a hex editor.. and then delete a few random bytes.. It will start to work again.
