Microsoft’s OneDrive is one of the best platforms to store your files and other documents. Office 365 users can upload files and documents and can access them or download them when required; it even allows you to share these files with other Office 365 users.
But, when it comes to downloading files from OneDrive, many users often struggle with downloading their OneDrive data. People who are using the desktop version of OneDrive can easily download files to their computer. But, those who are not using the desktop client can follow the below steps to download files from OneDrive.
Downloading files from Office 365 is very quick and simple. It can be done as:

Though this is an easy method to download files and folders from OneDrive, it has some limitations, such as:
Also, downloading files is time-consuming and monotonous, especially when there is a large amount of data. You might wonder how you can overcome this limitation. Well, there is an automated SharePoint Migration tool that allows you to download a large amount of data from OneDrive without any difficulties – Kernel Migrator for SharePoint. This tool not only helps you to download data from Office 365, but it also allows users to migrate list/libraries SharePoint Online (Office 365).
After many failed attempts with manual methods, I was still not able to download a large file. I almost gave up. Finally, after a colleague’s recommendation I gave a shot at trying the Migrator software, and my God, it worked like magic. No commands from my side, the tool did everything for me. Absolutely brilliant!
