Problems with ADrive

ADrive had set many of my download links to private without me doing anything. I have no idea why they did this. When I set them back to public apparently new download links were generated. Now these new links have to be put into my blog. There are many and I don't have the time to check them all one by one. So I'm very grateful if you make me aware of links which don't work. Sorry for the inconveniance. 
Does anyone have the same problem with ADrive or does anyone know why they do this or why this happens? Grateful for any feedback. Many thanks.
