How to batch-download files shared via Google Drive?

Someone shared with me a set of files from their Google Drive account, but all I can do is click each one in turn to open a preview in the browser, and then manually download each file in turn. I see no option to select the shared files for downloading, as I would in Box or Dropbox. Does anyone know a way to batch-download such shared Google Drive files? Thanks.
I'd recommend putting all the files into a folder on your Drive. Then, download a free trial of Spanning Backup. Once your first backup has run, you can export them all from Spanning in a single batch.
