Onedrive - batch download files

User4 0 Reputation points

Someone shared a OneDrive folder with me containing over 20,000 files. Due to the download size limit, I'm unable to select and download them all at once. I tried using browser extensions, but they aren't reading the files. Reading online, I found suggestions to use the OneDrive API, but since I don't own the OneDrive account, I can't register an application in Azure AD for the necessary authentication. The folder does prompt me to enter my email and sends a code for initial access. Is there an automated way I can download them one by one?

    Hi User4,

    Thank you for posting in the Q&A Forums.

    Try installing the OneDrive client on your computer (for Windows or macOS) and sign in with the link that's shared with you. Typically, once you authorize access, the OneDrive client attempts to sync the entire folder. However, please note that for a large number of files, this can take a long time and may be subject to sync limitations.

    If syncing doesn't start immediately, you can try manually adding a shared folder as a new location in the OneDrive client.

    Best regards
