I need to download all the files inside a drive folder or the folder itself and save them in a specific local destination, my actual code is here:
import pickle import os.path from googleapiclient.discovery import build from google_auth_oauthlib.flow import InstalledAppFlow from google.auth.transport.requests import Request import io from googleapiclient.http import MediaIoBaseDownload # If modifying these scopes, delete the file token.pickle. SCOPES = ['https://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive.file','https://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive.folder'] def main(): """Shows basic usage of the Drive v3 API. Prints the names and ids of the first 10 files the user has access to. """ creds = None # The file token.pickle stores the user's access and refresh tokens, and is # created automatically when the authorization flow completes for the first # time. if os.path.exists('token.pickle'): with open('token.pickle', 'rb') as token: creds = pickle.load(token) # If there are no (valid) credentials available, let the user log in. if not creds or not creds.valid: if creds and creds.expired and creds.refresh_token: creds.refresh(Request()) else: flow = InstalledAppFlow.from_client_secrets_file( 'credentials.json', SCOPES) creds = flow.run_local_server(port=0) # Save the credentials for the next run with open('token.pickle', 'wb') as token: pickle.dump(creds, token) service = build('drive', 'v3', credentials=creds) # Call the Drive v3 API file_id = '1qQ8hOSudoo7ISwqSAOeqsuBdsh-ZFCqm' request = service.files().get_media(fileId=file_id) fh = io.BytesIO() downloader = MediaIoBaseDownload(fh, request) done = False while done is False: status, done = downloader.next_chunk() print ("Download %d%%." % int(status.progress() * 100)) if __name__ == '__main__': main()
but it is throwing the following error, also i dont know how to set a specific local destination
"HttpError: <HttpError 403 when requesting https://www.googleapis.com/drive/v3/files/1qQ8hOSudoo7ISwqSAOeqsuBdsh-ZFCqm?alt=media returned "Only files with binary content can be downloaded. Use Export with Docs Editors files.". Details: "Only files with binary content can be downloaded. Use Export with Docs Editors files.">"
Do a file.list setting parent to the file id of the directory you are looking for.
Then loop through each file returned and download it using the code you have now.
file_id = [File id from first call] request = service.files().get_media(fileId=file_id) fh = io.BytesIO() downloader = MediaIoBaseDownload(fh, request) done = False while done is False: status, done = downloader.next_chunk() print ("Download %d%%." % int(status.progress() * 100))
If you are looking for a method which will do it for you you wont find one. You will need to download them one at a time.
