I want to download multiple files from a Sharepoint folder to my hard drive. When I select multiple files to download it automatically zips them but our IT dept does not allow zip files, so nothing happens. Same thing happens if I choose to download a folder. I can download each file individually no problem.

How can I download many files at once without zip?


Downloading two or more documents will place them into a zip file. You could sync the library using the Sync button in the command bar of the Document Library. Another option would be to use WebDAV/mapping the path.

Sync SharePoint files with the OneDrive sync app

  • Can you provide detail on the Sync functionality? – Al Lelopath Feb 22 '20 at 3:09
