Google Drive is refusing to zip and download a folder with 5 CSVs in it, no error message or details whatsoever, love it, terrific software


wait maybe Drive is just down? their Status Dashboard is showing bupkis though:

love it when my day's plans are thrown off b/c my boss "saw a tweet that google is down"

Further update - I don't know about Google Drive's status in general, but I am now only seeing this problem with certain shared folders and it can be solved by ->

opening each individual CSV as a Google Sheet ->

downloading the Google Sheet as a CSV. conversion and download to any other format (ODS, XSLX, zipping) is not working, but again, only for these files in certain folders
