I accidentally copied the wrong link to very important folder. I copied a link to one of the files instead of the whole folder. Is there a way to get the link to whole folder if the only thing i have is one of the files, and i don't have the google account anymore(it's in the database in this folder).

It would be astonishingly poor security if anyone could do that. No, the links are randomly generated precisely to prevent this.

Example links, to a folder & the two files it contains. There is no correlation between the names, & the apparent folder structures folder or file/d/ cannot be accessed directly by anyone. [The files no longer exist in these locations, this is just for example.]
