Yes, you can use the Python SDK to download files using the files_download method:

https://dropbox-sdk-python.readthedocs.io/en/latest/api/dropbox.html#dropbox.dropbox.Dropbox.files_d...

You need to call that once per file you want.

You can list the files using files_list_folder and files_list_folder_continue:

@lekha Thanks for letting me know. It looks like the documentation link format changed. I edited my post with the new correct ones.

I want filtered data like downloading the latest 10 files from a directory. How it can be done?

Hi @pii_dee,

Using rules pointed in the solution above, you can list folder(s) you want and receive files list there together with all accessible files attributes. Now you can reorder and filter all entries in received list according rules you want. Finally go further and download selected subset of the files list (again, using guides above - the example). 😉

Hope this helps.

 

Add: One example you can follow/get idea.
