Google Drive: Can I copy file by ID?

Hello all,

As title, can I copy one file from Google Drive to local folder with file ID?

Thank you!

Not in one step… However you can use rclone to show you the IDs of files so you could use that to map to a name, eg

rclone lsf -F ip drive:path/to/dir

Which might solve your problem with a bit of shell magic.
