  4. Nice trick its very valuable

    1. thanks for the comment 🙂

  5. Awesome Post

  6. Really helpful

  7. what if greater than 15gb?

    1. 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.
