Cloudinary supports several ways to download many or all of your resources from your account. Depending on your requirements, the size of your account, and whether you are using Cloudinary's UI or API, you can choose from the following options:
- If you're already using our SDK or API or if the account is very large, you can use the Admin API or Search API to list all resources in your account. The list will include the URL for accessing or downloading the original asset which can be done by using any HTTP library or downloading tool.
- Our command line interface tool can be used to perform the same operation with the 'sync' command. The sync command can use the search API to list all files, then download them to your computer or server. For more details, please refer to the following: https://cloudinary.com/documentation/cloudinary_cli#sync
- On any paid Cloudinary account you can choose to store backups of the files in your Cloudinary account in an Amazon S3 bucket or Google Cloud Storage bucket - the naming structure of the backup is different from how you see the files in Media Library, but this is a fast way to get a copy of all files if you can't use one of the above methods. For more details, please refer to our documentation: https://cloudinary.com/documentation/backups_and_version_management#using_your_own_backup_storage
- You can use our API to create a ZIP file containing up to 1000 assets, with a maximum size of 100 MB or your account's 'raw' file size limit (whichever is larger). For more information see our generate_archive documentation and the complementary blog post.
- Lastly, you can select the files or folders that you want to download using our Media Library and click "Download" which will add them to a ZIP file and download it to your computer. This is subject to the same restrictions as above, a maximum of 1000 files in each ZIP and each ZIP must be below (the larger of) 100 MB or the 'raw' file size limit of your account.
