Google announced some improvements to the Drive download and archiving service that will roll out over the coming weeks to Google Apps customers:
You can now compress and download Drive items into multiple 2GB zip files. Files have an improved name structure, for example: drive-download-20160516T125832Z.zip for the first file and drive-download-20160516T125832Z-2.zip for subsequent archives.
Better Google Forms handling.
Empty folders are now included in the zip.
