Hi, I want to stop using Amazon Cloud Drive, how do I download all the .cloud files back to my computer?

Hi @filter24,
Take a look at our documentation here for information about recursive downloading: https://docs.odrive.com/docs/sync-your-odrive#section--sync-all-files-and-subfolders-

I’ve done this but it’s only downloading some of the .cloud files.

Hi @filter24,
Amazon Drive is known to error frequently, which is probably what you are seeing. Take a look at this post for an advanced way to force the sync:

Since I came here with the same requirement the odrivecli.py is really easy to use and effective

See


For Windows all you need is
Python27\python.exe odrivecli.py sync --recursive “D:\drvd\odrive\Amazon Cloud Drive”

Better if you do it by directory

Hi @ourtowng,
Thanks for the input!
For folks that have python installed on Windows this is definitely a good option.

I also wanted to note that the recursive option is not available in the official cli code, but I created a version that does have it here: https://github.com/amagliul/odrive-utilities
