DriveExport 3.5 – BETA

We are aware of a known limit (bug?) of the official Google Drive API. It is not possible to export Google native items – such as documents, spreadsheet and presentations – which are greater than 10 MB. In such a case, the user receives errors like:

This file is too large to be exported. [403]
Errors [ Message[This file is too large to be exported.]
Location[ - ] Reason[exportSizeLimitExceeded] Domain[global]]

Recently, we discovered a different way to export google documents using an export API used by Google Drive web-site and not by the official API. It allows to export files greater than 10 MB! The new version of DriveExport – 3.5 currently in Beta – uses the new API as a workaround in case of error 403 – ExportSizeLimitExceeded.

You can activate the support for this workaround from the GUI configuration panel or directly in the xml configuration file, adding the entry:


Very important: keep in mind that the workaround is not officially supported and the underlying API could be discontinued or modified without notice by Google, making the workaround ineffective. You agree that you use it at your own risk.


DriveExport 3.2

We have released DriveExport 3.2.

It contains bug fixes and some improvements.

We encourage our users to upgrade.

We are proud to announce the availability of DriveExport 3.0. This new version has a big new feature: it now supports Google Team Drives! You can export files from both user drives and team drives using the same license. The Team Drive support can be activated for free on existing paid licenses.

Introduction to DriveExport

These days we all use a big variety of online and cloud services addressing many needs: emails, payments, collaboration, file storage and so on. Normally, we trust these services, but we might also be worried about the possibility of data loss or of a temporary data unavailability. Our worst nightmare is to wake up one day, open our preferred service and find it completely empty. A scary scenario for a single person, but more like a disaster for a company that stores many files and data there.
