Have you ever been working within the Google Drive web interface and you think; “hey, I really wish I could make a copy of this whole folder and everything it contains”. Yeah, me too. Doesn’t that seem reasonable? For Google, I guess not. Today I’m going to show you a workaround to make a copy of a folder in Google Drive.
1. Login to Google Drive. Find the folder you want to make a copy of. Below you’ll see we’re going to make a copy of the folder I titled “sub-folder” original, eh?
2. Right Click on the folder you want to copy & then click “download”

3. Decide where you want to save the folder on your local machine.
4. Navigate to the downloaded folder. Right Click and Extract all the files.
5. Open up your favorite web browser, Google Chrome. Navigate to Google Drive and drag and drop your extracted folder to the Google Drive web interface. **remember to edit your conversion settings to your preferences before uploading your folder**
