I’m trying to download a file from google drive in a script, and I’m having a little trouble doing so. The files I’m trying to download are here.
I’ve looked online extensively and I finally managed to get one of them to download. I got the UIDs of the files and the smaller one (1.6MB) downloads fine, however the larger file (3.7GB) always redirects to a page which asks me whether I want to proceed with the download without a virus scan. Could someone help me get past that screen?
Here’s how I got the first file working –
curl -L "https://docs.google.com/uc?export=download&id=0Bz-w5tutuZIYeDU0VDRFWG9IVUE" > phlat-1.0.tar.gz
When I run the same on the other file,
curl -L "https://docs.google.com/uc?export=download&id=0Bz-w5tutuZIYY3h5YlMzTjhnbGM" > index4phlat.tar.gz
I notice on the third-to-last line in the link, there a
&confirm=JwkK which is a random 4 character string but suggests there’s a way to add a confirmation to my URL. One of the links I visited suggested
&confirm=no_antivirus but that’s not working.
I hope someone here can help with this!

Have a look at this question: Direct download from Google Drive using Google Drive API
Basically you have to create a public directory and access your files by relative reference with something like
Alternatively, you can use this script: https://github.com/circulosmeos/gdown.pl
