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”
