How To Download Video From Google Drive To Computer

Download
  1. Sometimes you may have faced a situation like your friends or teachers has given you pdf, google docs, google sheets or video files with google drive links and when you open it you can preview the content of those files but when you try to download you will not get any download, copy, or print button because google has intentionally created those files with no download or print feature.
  2. Click the checkbox(es) next to the videos that you wish to download. 'Right click' the selected videos, select 'Download' option. Your browser prompts you to save.zip file, click 'Save' and specify a location to download. The downloaded zip file will contain the videos from the Google Drive. Click 'Download' button. All your videos will now be downloaded to the computer.
  3. Open a new tab in your browser and navigate to then login in if necessary. Just below the Google Drive logo, you’ll see a button featuring the word “New”. Click this to open the drop-down menu. Select “File Upload” from the drop-down menu. Navigate to the video’s location, select it, and then click Open.

Google offers a tool called Takeout that is intended to let you easily take all your content and copy to your computer's hard drive. The problem with takeout is that the resulting.zip files are very difficult to navigate. Selecting photos/videos using Google Photos and downloading to your computer is easy and effective. Last week, I got a Google Drive recording video and it was shared with me with View-Only access. The video was further shared with my team but they are getting access denied on the link. Here are the steps on how to download the video: In Chrome, open developer tools and select the “Network” tab.

How to sync 'Computers' from Google Drive to new computer
I have back up of my old computer stored in 'Computers' on google drive. I installed 'Backup and Sync from Google' on my new computer and want to download data to new computer. Backup and Sync app has three options. One for 'back up folders [from new computer] to google drive' and two 'sync my drive to this [new] computer. Since I want to download my data from google drive to new computer, I select option two. I see list of all my folders from google drive when selecting option 2 except 'Computers' where my data is saved. I tried to download backup as zip file but because of big data I get error. I hope attached screenshots will help understanding issue.

I got exactly the same problem. And it is so annoying that no one give any answer. At least I would thank if Google Drive allowed us to share that folder in order to get some link to put in some Download Manager. That would be useful to download big data.

I came back to answering activities in June, and have given a lot of answers on this issue. Before that, it didn't seem to be here anyone could explain this issue clearly.

Backup & Sync have 2 sync ways, which are 'Google Drive' (My Drive)' and 'My Computer' (or My Laptop etc.). Both are separated and different sync.
If enabled this, B&S create a Google Drive folder on your computer, then copy the contents of My Drive of the cloud to there. After that, B&S continue to keep the sync between Google Drive folder on your computer and My Drive located https://drive.google.com/drive/my-drive.
▼My Computer
You can specify any folder located anywhere on your computer to sync with the cloud.
B&S create a My Computer folder in https://drive.google.com/drive/computers, then copy the specified folder to there.
After that, B&S continue to keep the sync between the cloud and local. This sync feature is having uploading system for Google Photos by option.
If you want to transfer the files located in My Computer to your new computer (My Laptop for example), you should take the step as follows.
Suppose you have already synced 'Documents' folder of your old computer with the cloud via My Computer option of B & Sync as diagram below, you can see the 'Documents' folder in My Computer of Google Drive in the cloud.
Just like that, sync also 'Documents' folder of your new laptop, but My Computer and My Laptop are separately in the cloud and not synced with each other.
If you want to just transfer the files, but not to sync between 2 computers, just drag & drop the subfolder and files to the 'Documents' folder in My Laptop to move them without using the Ctrl key. Expand the folder tree on the left side column in the cloud before dragging and dropping.
In this moving work, the subfolder and files will be removed from your local old computer too if it is syncing. So, if you want to leave them on the old local drive, you should disconnect the sync from the old computer.
If you want to sync between 2 computers,drag & drop pressing down Ctrl key the subfolder and files to the 'Documents' folder in My Laptop to add them.

Add is different from Move, which means to add the new location (new path) that users can access to it. The subfolder and files added to a new place is not the copy, entity is a single also storage quota is a single. It is linked to each other. To cancel the link, open 'Details' from the information icon and click the 'X' mark in the location item.

Hi, I have my image and video files on an external HDD. They have been backed up and synced using a windows PC with google backup and sync. I now have a new PC and would like to continue syncing to the external HDD. Is there a way to only update the link between the existing folders?

The answer you are looking for is included in my first post. Computers section of Google Drive will be created separately for each PC. When you already switched the PC, the new PC cannot manage the syncing for the external HDD without to apply the idea in my post.

Since your problem is a matter that have proceeded to the next phase from the essentials of the original question, it is better to build another new thread yourself. And you should write more information, because just two short sentences don't tell the details. By the way, there is another thread similar to your problem, refer to https://support.google.com/drive/thread/23189579?hl=en&msgid=23189579

The cause is a bug that Backup & Sync cannot get control the deep hierarchy folder because the folder you are trying to sync has a lot of hierarchy.
Perhaps you have a lot of hierarchy too, 160Gb is a considerable amount.
On the discussion on that thread, it has been found that a sync can be started by giving a trigger such as clicking a folder.

Now, when it does not work following my post on 9/11/19 that is able to work on basic condition, firstly check your sync by the steps as below.
How To Download Video From Google Drive To Computer
1) Expand the folder tree on the left side column in the cloud.
2) Open a sync folder created by Backup & Sync inside 'MyNewComputer'.
3) Create temporarily a new folder in the sync folder at the cloud.
4) Upload an appropriate file to the new folder from your computer by using the browser.
So, will the new folder and file be created on your computer via Backup & Sync?
5) Drag & drop the most small folder without subfolder from MyOldComputer to the sync folder inside 'MyNewComputer'.
So, will it be created on your computer via Backup & Sync?
If the above test works fine, you should choose 1 of 2 ways.
1) Firstly create manually hierarchy of the folder inside 'MyNewComputer', other than bottom folders having files.
They will be synced with your computer via Backup & Sync, then drag & drop bottom folders with files.

2) Manually download all and sync them again as you said. However, it's better to download them in smaller groups if files crashing during download.
Computer
You can download them also directly from Google Drive page via browser, other than using Google Takeout.
