      you would have to download split files equal to or smaller than your available storage space.

      so instead of a 36GB file, for example, you could (instead) download three 10GB files and 1 6GB file (one file at a time).

      you will have to delete/remove the downloaded file from the Google Drive before attempting to download the next file.

      or if you have access to a Google account w/o storage limits, those seem to work w/o storage limitation issues.
