    If the files wanted were all named sequentially it wouldnt be much of an issue, and in that case, 1 filter would most likely suffice. But, if the files wanted aren't, then, it requires multiple filters. This is just my opinion as I see it....hopefully I'm wrong.

    Hi Spacebar208 and Don,

    Thank you for your inputs!

    However, given there are 10000's odd file. It will be extremely challenging and time consuming for me to be able to select files individually. Moreover, as they are not in a chronological order it might not be possible, as I'll need to search each one manually.

    The https link does not even have a check box.

    I'm afraid this isn't going to work

    Do I have any other options? Sorry to be bother you again and again!

    Kind reagrds,
    Jai

    Do you know the names of the files you want to download before you go to the web site?
    If so, How? Do they get emailed you, someone tells you, etc....

    If you do not know the file names before you go to the web site, How do you determine which files to download, please give examples of how you determine them.

    Also post a few of what the file url's look like, just right click a link in Internet Explorer and select "Copy shortcut" and then paste them in your message as text.

    This the way each file URL appears on the link:

    1. 20121008-0650-36614191-in.wav
    2. 20121008-0650-36614191-out.wav
    3. 20121008-0844-36614525-in.wav
    4. 20121008-0844-36614525-out.wav
    5. 20121008-1027-36612209-in.wav
    6. 20121008-1027-36612209-out.wav
    7. 20121008-1056-36631178-in.wav
    8. 20121008-1056-36631178-out.wav
    9. 20121008-1253-36634929-out.wav
    10. 20121008-1259-36646635-in.wav

    The numeric 8 values starting with 3 (36646635, 36614191 etc) are the unique numbers for each of those...I get them on a spreadsheet and search the above URLs using these 8 digit unique numbers...There are at least 2 recordings with each unique 8 digit number (1 for in and out) and can go upto 6, but as long as the IDs map I need all.

    I tried the coomplete download of the date folder for Oct 24 there was 60 GB of recoordings it did not succed even after 6-hours

    Please advise.

    Thanks

    Ok, since you get them in a spreadsheet you can write a excel formula or macro to create the url for the files(that why I said post what the url looks like) and save the urls to a text file, then import the saved urls into the download manager(ex. Internet Download Manager) to download via the "Import from txt file" option.

    Dearest Sir,

    I think I'm getting a bit closer. I tried downloading the files via the Internet Download Manager, while it downloaded a single file on pasting the url very quickly. I faced an Error in the "File Type" column on importing through a text file...

    Here's a snapshot of the way, I copied the links on the text file:
    https.....20121008-0650-36614191-out.wav;https... 20121008-0844-36614525-in.wav;https... 20121008-0844-36614525-out.wav

    I'm not sure if this is how it should be done. Somehow, I did not find anything on research as well...

    Could you please advise and maybe guide me to a link where the process is defined...

    I really, truly appreciate your help...

    Kindest regards,
    Jai

    Let's say your text file containing the URL's is called: mylinks.txt
    In this text file I believe that you should have each URL on a separate line, like this:

    https.....20121008-0650-36614191-out.wav
    https....20121008-0844-36614525-in.wav
    https....20121008-0844-36614525-out.wav


    Then try the "Tasks->>Import->>From text file" option

    Dear Spacebar208 and Don,

    I think I'm there. A word of thanks coming soon. Hopefuly by tomorrow.

    Though, I'm already thankful or can't thank you enough:-)

    You guys are the best!

    In the meantime positing another thread that one should be simple I guess.

    Best regards,
    Jai

    First thing first - I would like to convey a "BIG THANK YOU" to you Spacebar208 for all the help on this. I finally managed to get this done. Its working beautifully up till now.

    I'm sure it would have not been possible without your help and advice.

    Once again, please accept my apologies in case I came back with some queries which might have been not really good ones so to say...

    I also take this opportunity to thank Don for his inputs on it.

    You guys are the best! "THANK YOU"
