EPD - eHelp - Technologies - Google Drive - Download Contents of a Folder

Google Drive allows you to download the contents of an entire folder at once.

Locate the Google Drive folder containing the content you wish to download. If you are following a direct link to a folder you will need to sign into your Google Drive account if you haven't already done so.

If your selected folder is nested within other folders you will see a series of links ("breadcrumb trail") beginning with My Drive. The name of the current folder is listed last and has a pull-down arrow next to it.

Google Drive will compress the entire contents of the selected folder and will download them as a zip file to your local computer.
