The Best Way to Upload Files to Google Drive via FTP\SFTP

What are FTP or SFTP?

Before we introduce the best way to upload files to Google Drive via FTP\SFTP, we should know enough about FTP and SFTP:

FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol commonly used for downloading and uploading files from server. With it, you can transfer files between two computers - the first one is the user’s computer which is the local host machine connected to the Internet, and the second one is the remote host which is also running FTP and connected to the Internet.

SFTP, standing for Secure File Transfer Protocol, is similar to FTP but the encrypted version of FTP. So you can guess that SFTP is more secure and tend to be more reliable than FTP.

However, no matter FTP or SFTP, there is a bit of trouble uploading from FTP\SFTP to Google Drive: “Before you upload your data feed via FTP\SFTP, you’ll need to register it in Google Merchant Center to let our system know to expect your file.” In addition, when you upload data feed via each of them, you should note that your files must be under 4GB in size of either the compressed or uncompressed format.

Considering all inconvenience, we suggest you try another way to avoid direct FTP\SFTP access to Google Drive - MultCloud. It allows you to add as many of cloud storage services as possible here including but not limited to FTP\SFTP and Google Drive, then you don’t need to download content from one and upload to another since all works are done in the browser with MultCloud. Therefore, even FTP\SFTP access is unavailable to Google Drive, you still can easily upload files to Google Drive via FTP\SFTP with MultCloud.

To create a task that automates backup from your FTP to some Google Drive account, please follow the next instruction:

  1. Open Handy Backup. Create a new task by selecting a “New task…” menu item.
  2. Select a backup task type. On a Step 2, select “FTP” as the data source.
  1. Set up your FTP connection parameters by pressing a “New connection…” item.
  2. Test your connection. Then press “OK” and return to creating a task.
  3. On the Step 3, select a “Google Drive” feature for saving your data.

Recommended Solution

Version 7.9.5, built on 26 October, 2017. 66.2 MBBackup Software from Novosoft LLC. 39 USD per license.

The Standard edition provides an access to both FTP and Google Drive instruments, allowing effective FTP to Google Drive backup. Free 30-days trial version!

Some other methods are existed for FTP Google Drive backup. Here are examples of these methods:

  • Google Drive Agent, the multi-platform utility, creates a folder on the local computer that automatically synchronizes with a Google Drive account. Any data placed to this folder by any method is automatically stored to Google Drive.
  • In other hand, to provide FTP access to Google Drive, users may transfer the FTP content any way they seem appropriate. For this purpose, users may utilize HTTP or FTP browser clients, move FTP to Google Drive using FileZilla or other FTP utilities, and so on.

Note: Since many problems occurred with using FileZilla Google Drive FTP access, there are some other viable solutions to backup FTP to Google Drive, such as Cyberduck. Another way is to use Handy Backup, containing both dedicated Google Drive and FTP connection instruments.

Sometimes, you will need to keep your Google Drive data on FTP server for some reason; it can be a part of corporate-level project, or a video, or a bit of website edited using Google Drive as the storage. Whatever it may be, Handy Backup will help you!

How to Store From Google Drive to FTP

To reverse the process of transferring data described above, just use the “Google Drive” option at the Step 2 as the data source, and then, on a Step 3, select and connect to the desired FTP server, marking it as the storage media for your backup task.

GitHub

www.andresoviedo.org

Latest Release 1.2.3 - 07 April 2016

The project is packaged with Maven. If you want to build it just download the project, compile it and run Java with "org.andresoviedo.apps.gdrive_ftp_adapter.Main"

  • If you have Java installed already all you have to do is download jar-with-dependencies.jar and double click on it or run from command line:

    $ java -jar google-drive-ftp-adapter-jar-with-dependencies.jar

  • If you don't have Java installed and you are in Windows:

    • Download from here
    • Unzip it
    • Execute windows-install-java.cmd
    • Execute start.cmd
  • Once the application is started, Google with request authorization through your browser to allow Google Drive FTP access to your data. Click "OK".

  • Open ftp://user:[email protected]:1821/ in your browser to connect to your Google Drive.

  • Or open terminal and type "ftp localhost 1821": Type "user" as the username and "user" as password. Once in FTP, type "dir" to see your drive files.

Ftp example:

$ ftp localhost 1821 Connected to localhost. 220 Service ready for new user. Name (localhost:andres): user 331 User name okay, need password for user. Password: 230 User logged in, proceed. Remote system type is UNIX. $ ftp> dir 200 Command PORT okay. 150 File status okay; about to open data connection. drwx------ 0 uknown no_group 0 Nov 16 2013 SOFTWARE drwx------ 0 uknown no_group 0 Oct 29 2013 NEXUS7 drwx------ 0 uknown no_group 0 Oct 19 2013 MUSIC -rw------- 0 uknown no_group 5348582 Apr 30 22:15 Dr. Toast - Light.mp3 -rw------- 0 uknown no_group 1936326 Dec 21 2014 avatar2.jpg 226 Closing data connection $ ftp>

The application works fine without configuration. However, a default 'configuration.properties' file is provided in case you want to customize them.

If you want, you can also customize the path of the 'configuration.properties' when launching the app:

$ java -jar google-drive-ftp-adapter.jar [propertiesFilename]

Here are the application parameters you can customize:

# log4j.fileId if you have more than 1 instance of the app running log4j.fileId= # account name associated to cache and Google credentials account=default # FTP port listening for incoming connections port=1821 # FTP Enable anonymous login? ftp.anonymous.enabled=false # FTP default user credentials ftp.user=user ftp.pass=user # Illegal characters for your file system so file copying works fine os.illegalCharacters=\\/|[\\x00-\\x1F\\x7F]|\\`|\\?|\\*|\\\\|\\<|\\>|\\||\\"|\\:

account

This is the name associated to the cache and Google credentials, so the next time you run the application you don't have to re-login or resynchronize all of the application cache. This is also the name of the subfolder under "/data" where information is going to be stored. Default value is "default".

port

TCP port number where the ftp adapter is going to listen for ftp clients. Default FTP port is 21, but In Linux this is a reserved port and ports below 1024 are privileged, so we use port 1821. Default is 1821. There is another start2.cmd as example (Windows) that start an FTP adapter at port 22.

  • Note: If you have different Google Drive accounts, you can launch multiple google-drive-ftp-adapter in the same machine, each listening at a different port. Just put a different fileId so they write logs in different files.
  • Question: When I type in the username and password on the FTP client (e.g. in the FileZilla) it tells me "Authentication Failed":

    • Answer: The user credentials to login to the ftp server are not the same user credentials that you use for loging into your google account. Check in the README.md for the default user credentials to use.
  • Question: In my ftp client (e.g. FileZilla), when I download my google documents and I click on it they don't open.

    • Answer: If they are documents like word or excel (either if it's google filetype or not), your filenames should end with a proper filename extesion like "my_document.doc" or "my_google_sheet.xls" so your operating system can open it with your deafult installed applications.
  • Question: How can I start a secondary server?

    • Answer: You have 2 options so far:
      • in the start2.cmd you have an example how to launch a secondary server passing an accountId and secondary port number. You may have different start.cmd to start different ftp servers (i.e. start-foo.cmd, start-bar.cmd).
      • Or instead of passing the accounId and port number, you can pass a /path/to/secondary.properties That way you can specify different account ids and ports inside the file.
  • Question: When I launch the application nothing happens.

    • Answer: Check that in the console or file log there is no errors. Check that your default Internet browser doesn't have any plugin that is causing the google authentication dialog to have any problems.
  • If you are in Windows 10 and you an error like the following, try to run program or terminal as administrator: java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: C:\Users\Zeo\AppData\Local\Temp\sqlite-3.7.151-x86-sqlitejdbc.dll: Access is denied

  • For some type of files, the size of files reported by Google differs from what the local operating system does (for example: .txt and .3gp) (Fix TBA)

  • If you have timeout problems because of slow internet connectivity, try incrementing the timeout in your FTP client.

  • This application is released under the LGPL license. Use this application at your own risk.
  • This application uses a Google Drive API Key with a courtesy of 10 requests/second/user and 10 million request/day. When it reaches the quota the application may stop working.

This application lets you connect your FTP applications to your Google Drive files through the FTP protocol rather than using the official Google Drive client.

This custom Google Drive client was created because the official client can't be reinstalled on a new PC without having to download all your drive files again. Also, because the official client does not support FAT32 partitions and I used to have all my files in one of this partitions.

So this application basically starts a FTP server in your local machine emulating that it is hosting your Google Drive files, acting as a gateway. Once this setup is done, you can connect any FTP client to connect to your Google Drive files. I use it in conjunction with Beyond Compare to compare my local files (stored anywhere in my cloud ;) and compare them to ones I have in the Google Drive cloud.

You are free to use this program while you keep this file and the authoring comments in the code. Any comments and suggestions are welcome.
