How To Download Torrents Straight To Google Drive!

Remember our guide on How to Save Files from the Internet to Google Drive without downloading them using Google Colaboratory? Well, even if the guide is self-sufficient, it won’t work if you want to download files from a torrent. Worry not, we, at SpadeBee, as always, have got your back. Let’s see how to Download Torrents straight to Google Drive, without actually using any data!

We are going to use Google Colaboratory again for this task.
All the credits for this work go to the author of Torrent-To-Google-Drive-Downloader.

Do note that we do not promote piracy. This tutorial is for educational purposes only.

So, without further ado, let’s get started!

Prerequisites :

1. Google Account with Google Drive and Google Colab accessible.

What is the purpose of this?

  1. Because Google Servers’ speed is much faster than most of our connections.
  2. Because it is in the cloud, files can be accessed anywhere.

Time needed: 5 minutes.

Steps to Follow

  1. Go to the GitHub repository

    Open the link Torrent-To-Google-Drive-Downloader, and read the whole README.MD properly. Understand the risks, and if you agree, move ahead, and click Open In Colab button.

  2. Install libtorrent and initialize Session

    Run the first cell to install libtorrent package and initialize a session to work with.

  3. Mount your Google Drive

    Run the second cell to mount your Google Drive in colaboratory. Follow the link, then click allow, and paste the authorization code in the box provided. If successful, you will get the message about your drive being mounted.

  4. Add Torrent files or Magnet Links

    Run the third cell for uploading torrent files, or the fourth cell, to save torrent using magnet link. You can run both cells as many times as you require to generate a list of torrents to be saved to your drive.

  5. Start Downloading files!

    Run the last cell to start downloading files to drive. To note, none of your data will be used for downloading.
    Further, all downloads will be saved to a “Torrents” folder inside your Drive.

So, this is it. This is how you download torrents straight to your google drive without using any data. See you in the next post. Till then, Sayonara.
