Unfortunately, there's no way to individually select which data you would like to download when you download your Facebook info. You'll have to download your file in its entirety.

When you download your information, we require you to confirm your identity before you can start the process.

Once your download is ready, we'll send an email to the email address listed on your Facebook account along with a link to your download. For security purposes, the link will expire in a few days, after which you'll have to reinitiate the download process. Before you can download the file containing your data, you’ll have to enter your password. If you're using a public computer or one you don't use regularly, you may also have to solve a friend photo captcha or an SMS captcha via your mobile phone.

Warning: This file may contain private information. You should keep it secure and take precautions when storing or sending it, or uploading it to another service.
