Option 1. Download “Non-Large/Tiny” Google Drive Files

wget –no-check-certificate ‘https://docs.google.com/uc?export=download&id=FILEID‘ -O FILENAME

Example WGET command:

Option 2. Download Very Large Google Drive Files

Example WGET command:

wget –load-cookies /tmp/cookies.txt “https://docs.google.com/uc?export=download&confirm=$(wget –quiet –save-cookies /tmp/cookies.txt –keep-session-cookies –no-check-certificate ‘https://docs.google.com/uc?export=download&id=AbcDefgHijklMnOPQ‘ -O- | sed -rn ‘s/.*confirm=([0-9A-Za-z_]+).*/\1\n/p’)&id=AbcDefgHijklMnOPQ” -O backup.zip && rm -rf /tmp/cookies.txt
