Example of using GDown to download large files from google drive

GDown – Download files directly from Google Drive

Usually, when you download large files directly from google drive via wget/curl, it fails because of a security warning. GDown solves that problem.

1st, we need to install python-pip


root@linuxserver:~$ apt install python3-pip -y


root@linuxserver:~$ yum install python-pip -y


From command line

gdown [-h] [-V] [-O OUTPUT] [-q] [–id] url_or_id
root@linuxserver:~$ gdown https://drive.google.com/uc?id=0B_NiLAzvehC9R2stRmQyM3ZiVjQ
