I would like to download approx. 100 pictures from to my tablet. I found only one way, only one picture by one. Is there a way to "download all"?


I'm assuming by driveyou mean ?

From this page you can zip and download all Drive files

Google drive has the ability to download a bunch of files and folders in a zip file.

To do so , just select the files and folders and select More > Download > Download from Google Drive

The files will be zipped and it will take some time for the process depending upon the size of the files and folders. You can either wait with that window open by looking into the estimated time or you can click 'Email when ready' which will send you a email with link to zip file onces its done.

Note the max zip size is 2Gb.

An alternative would be to do the following:

Sync the files to your computer using the google drive client app:

    1. Install the google drive app on your computer
    2. On drive.google.com, drag the folder shared with you from "Shared with me" to "My Drive"
    3. Now all the files should automagically appear on the "Google drive" folder on your computer

Third option:

GDrive Downloader application on Play this claims to download all files with extensions.

  • Thanks for answering. yes, google drive I amthinking off. – user55150 Mar 3 '14 at 13:06
  • As I understand, you describe actions taken on PC. – user55150 Mar 3 '14 at 13:06
  • @user55150 Is there no option in the app, the first way was SUPPOSED to be the app, and the other for your PC if it is quicker. Ok, I've added a third option, from the Play store, hopefully ONE of these will work! – RossC Mar 3 '14 at 13:07
  • My question belongs to working with a tablet. On the tablet I open the Google Drive app, see my files and cannot find the option as "mark all" or "download all". Thanks for help. – user55150 Mar 3 '14 at 13:11
  • @user55150 try the app I linked to. I know it is with the tablet, but if there is NO option (and the app doesn't work) then you may HAVE to do it on a PC or one by one. I'm trying to find a way to get your files over for you, unfortunately Drive doens't make it easy (one of MANY reasons I would never, ever use Google Drive tbh). Try the app and let me know. Fingers crossed!! – RossC Mar 3 '14 at 13:13

Do you mean Google Drive?

You may found what you need in this methods.

If you want to download all your files on Google Drive or Google Docs, there are several different ways in which this can be achieved but the best method is to navigate to http://myaccount.google.com and click on the Control Your Content 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 window to select all of their files and then click Download. 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 way to download all of your Google Drive files is to download the local Google Drive app (Backup and Sync) for whatever operating system that you’re using.
