Unfortunately the Dropbox API doesn't offer this functionality, but I'll be sure to pass this along as a feature request.

If you're using an official SDK, there will also be a corresponding method for this endpoint.

Re: Download Entire Folder as ZIP

How do I force my browser to download the file after I call DownloadZip() via the SDK?
