How can I download all my files back to my computer at once?

Explorer | Level 3

Hello, since I cancelled my membership I would like to download all my stuff back to my computer. How can I do this all at once? ( like copying a folder or drag and drop)

I really hope I dont have to do this file by file. Sorry no clue ..

 

thank you and greetings.

Hi there @LULI123,

If you have a lot of data then the easiest way might be to use the desktop app to sync all your data to your computer. 

Otherwise, through the website you download folders with 20 GB or less within them or with fewer than 10,000 total files. You can find the steps to download folders from the website from hereIf you have a lot of smaller folders then you could move them all into one folder and download the one folder.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions - thanks!
