Google Drive – How to Download All Files At Once

Google Drive Download All Files

The above video tutorial shows users how to download all of their Google Drive files at once.

There are couple different methods in which this can be achieved but the most effective method is to navigate to and click on the “control your content” section to create an archive of all of your Google Drive files.

Alternatively, users can simply use select all – ctrl + A (Windows) or command + A (Mac) – from within their Drive to select all of their files and then download them. This method is not as effective, however, because users with a large number of files will not be able to easily select all of them at one time.

The third option for downloading all of your Google Drive files is to download the local Google Drive app for whatever operating system that you’re using.

You can then sync your Google Drive account with the local app to automatically download all of your Drive files to your local computer.

Again, the most robust solution is to access Google’s MyAccount page and create a Google Drive archive using that.
