How to download multiple files in Google Cloud Storage?

+2 votes
We have many files uploaded on the Google storage bucket which is distributed among the team. Now downloading individual file is taking a  lot of time. Is there any way to download all/multiple files from the bucket .

Is it possible to do this without using the cloud sdk?

You can achieve this through the gsutil commands, it's not possible with the web UI. through this command, you can download multiple files in parallel.

$> gsutil cp -r gs://my_bucket/Directory

I recommend they use gsutil. GCS's API deals with only one object at a time. However, its command-line utility, gsutil, is more than happy to download a bunch of objects in parallel, though. Downloading an entire GCS "folder" with gsutil is pretty simple:

$> gsutil cp -r gs://my-bucket/remoteDirectory localDirectory
