One way is to download these file to your hard disk and then back them up by uploading them to your favorite cloud service. But this is a long and tedious method and might take a long time. Fortunately there is an extension called Cloud Save for Chrome browser, that lets you backup a file directly to your cloud storage service without any need of downloading them first.
