I'm following the instructions in this post to download 2 csv files from my google drive to my computer. Here is the code provided -
library(googledrive) library(purrr) ## store the URL you have folder_url <- "https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B7tJg2i5HAo2c0VzVFVhLUdQcnM" ## identify this folder on Drive ## let googledrive know this is a file ID or URL, as opposed to file name folder <- drive_get(as_id(folder_url)) ## identify the csv files in that folder csv_files <- drive_ls(folder, type = "csv") ## download them walk(csv_files$id, ~ drive_download(as_id(.x)))
The instructions download the csv files to my "documents" folder. I am trying to download the files to a particular folder on my laptop using a slight modification to the last bit of code -
walk(csv_files$id, ~ drive_download(as_id(.x), path = "../Desktop/data_folder/, overwrite = TRUE))
Unfortunately, this is saving a single .xlsx file which does not contain any data and cannot be opened. How do I correct the code to save both files to a particular folder?
