Google Drive does NOT make it easy to mass-delete your files. So, here’s a workaround:
- Download Dokkio. It’s free, and it’s a file sorting and productivity app. This is what we’re going to use to delete your Google Drive files faster.
- Once you’ve downloaded Dokkio and synced your Google Drive files (you can also sync your Gmail files), you can sort through your files by clicking “file source”, and then only selecting “google drive”. You can also select “gmail” files if you wish.
3. From here, you can click “select all” at the top and delete everything all at once! If you wish to sort through without deleting everything, you can always use the search function to the top left and search for keywords of files you’d like to delete “like mp4, doc, png, etc” and delete by file type or file name.
Done! And you didn’t have to go through the hassle of doing this in Google Drive for 10 hours.
