How to upload data permanently on google-colab?… here is a solution to the problem.

How to upload data permanently on google-colab?

When I upload the data with the following code, the data disappears once disconnected.

from google.colab import files

uploaded = files.upload()

for fn in uploaded.keys():
  print('User uploaded file "{name}" with length {length} bytes'.format(
      name=fn, length=len(uploaded[fn])))

Please suggest me a way to upload the data so that it remains intact even after a few days of disconnection.


I permanently store my data in a .zip file in Google Drive and upload it to the Google colabs VM using the following code.

Paste it into a cell, and then change the file_id. You can find the file_id from the URL of the Google Drive Chinese piece. (Right-click on the file > get the shared link > find the URL part after opening?) id=)

#@title uploader
file_id = "1BuM11fJJ1qdZH3VbQ-GwPlK5lAvXiNDv" #@param {type:"string"}
!pip install -U -q PyDrive

from pydrive.auth import GoogleAuth
from import GoogleDrive
from google.colab import auth
from oauth2client.client import GoogleCredentials

# 1. Authenticate and create the PyDrive client.
gauth = GoogleAuth()
gauth.credentials = GoogleCredentials.get_application_default()
drive = GoogleDrive(gauth)

# PyDrive reference:

from google.colab import auth

from googleapiclient.discovery import build
drive_service = build('drive', 'v3')

# Replace the assignment below with your file ID
# to download a different file.
# A file ID looks like: 1gLBqEWEBQDYbKCDigHnUXNTkzl-OslSO

import io
from googleapiclient.http import MediaIoBaseDownload

request = drive_service.files().get_media(fileId=file_id)
downloaded = io. BytesIO()
downloader = MediaIoBaseDownload(downloaded, request)
done = False
while done is False:
  # _ is a placeholder for a progress object that we ignore.
  # (Our file is small, so we skip reporting progress.)
  _, done = downloader.next_chunk()

fileId = drive. CreateFile({'id': file_id }) #DRIVE_FILE_ID is file id example: 1iytA1n2z4go3uVCwE_vIKouTKyIDjEq
fileId.GetContentFile(fileId['title'])  # Save Drive file as a local file

!unzip {fileId['title']}
