Extract files directly on remote. (Google Drive)

I've got a thousand of files zipped on Google Drive and I want to extract them on the same cloud. I've local-mounted the share with rclone so I have verified that I can unzip them one by one.
Is it possible to unzip them all without receiving a 24h ban?

Has anyone tried this? How does this process hit the Google drive API?

Thank you!

How much data are you taking about as the number isn't really relevant?

2TB of data (near a thousand files all zipped). Mount is encrypted I don't know if that affects the GDrive API.

There isn't any magical way to unzip it without re-uploaded it to depending on how much compression you got, it would 750GB per day x number of days.

you might be able to use a google cloud compute virtual machine.
some rcloners have used the free version.

in that way, you will not have to use your local computer and local internet.
