Can I download files in bulk?
« on: October 31, 2012, 05:40:04 AM »
My goal is to download multiple files from a server using HFS (Http File Server) over an HTTP connection.
is there any application/batch script that can perform bulk download?

I have try WinHTTrack3.46 but get so many errors (1073 errors). its only got mirrored website which contain : Server busy page.
 
Is it possible to download the files from sub-directories and not getting error files (server busy page)?

nb: I do not have administrative privileges on the system I need to download to.

Thanks
Dimitria

you can try to download /~folder.tar
from the root, and see if you have access to that, and if it's complete.

you get that page because there's a limit on how fast you can access the server. The downloader (httrack) may perhaps be configured to retry when getting an error, instead of just taking it.

HTTrack is a website copier/ripper
See tabs Links and Spider on config settings
