Share this article

Ever wondered how to save your Gmail attachments to your Google Drive? Yes, but you don’t know the way out then how we have two solutions. First is that you can manually download each attachment then upload to your drive which is really time-consuming and cumbersome. Second method is pretty easy, actually it is automated and all credit goes to our India’s famous Blogger Amit Aggarwal who created a script himself which allows us to do the same. Main source article is published at his tech blog named “Digital Inspiration”. 


Script is written in a way that it saves all the attachments automatically even for the mails to arrive in future along with the ones present in your inbox already.

Things needed:

  • The one and only thing you need is the script and you can download that script from here.


  • All you have to do is to go to the file option from the Menu bar and select “Make a copy” which will open the copy of the script in another window.
