Automatically upload files to Google Drive

Service Note: MASV is a popular integration used to accelerate large dataset uploads into Google Drive. Unfortunately, a recent change in Google’s policy affects upload speeds, and new Google Drive integrations are temporarily unavailable.

Customers have reported issues when transferring large files to Google Drive. We are working with Google to resolve the issue. If saving to a different storage service that supports larger file transfers isn’t an option, you can try downloading the transfer locally and uploading to Google Drive from the local device. Please contact your Google Workspace support representative (reference number for the inquiry is 50098823) for more details or to raise your quota limit.

Uploads Made Easy

Thanks to MASV Portals, you can automate file deliveries into your Google Drive storage.


Receive files and folders from external contributors without sharing access to your Google Drive account.


MASV is an ISO 27001-certified and TPN-verified secure file transfer service.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to download large files from Google Drive?

Go to Google Drive and right-click the file you want to download. Click download.

To download multiple files, select the files you need and right-click. Click download. This will package and download the files as a ZIP folder

How do I transfer files to someone else's Google Drive?

The recipient needs to share their Google Drive folder with you and grant edit permission. This can be a security risk so we recommend using a MASV Portal instead. Upload the files to the recipient’s MASV Portal. If they integrated MASV with Google Drive, anything you upload will automatically appear in their Drive.

Can I email files directly to Google Drive?

Not directly. Attach the files to your email message (as long as its size is 25 MB or smaller) and send it to the email address connected to your Google Drive. Open the email and click the “Add to Drive” icon on the attachment.

Can someone upload files to my Google Drive?

Yes. There are two ways. One, share your Google Drive folder with someone and grant them edit access to your folder. This can be a security risk so we recommend using option two instead: a MASV Portal. A MASV Portal is a secure upload window which can connect to Google Drive. Anything that gets uploaded to your Portal will automatically appear in your Drive.

Does the MASV and Google Drive integration work with ZIPs?

Zip files are not transferred – only a package’s files and directories.

Is there a size limit for the MASV and Google Drive integration?

The package size delivered from MASV to your Google Drive cannot exceed the available space in your cloud storage account. Individual files cannot exceed the file size limit of the cloud storage provider: Google Drive allows a maximum of 750 GB of transfers in a 24-hour period.

Can I download files through the MASV app from Google Drive?

No. The MASV app does not support downloading from Google Drive.
