Can it download the list of files?

For such purpose I am using Total Commander feature but it would be nice to have it also here…

It cannot do automated list of files without running separate instances of it.

Command Line:
1. /f=filepathandname - Save file location and name.
2. /u=downloadlocation - http or https url of download.
3. /ec - Exits when complete.
3. /ow - This will overwrite a file without confirmation if download is started from command line so use at *YOUR OWN RISK*. (New in 1.0.2 build 1)


/ow  --  That sounds like a painful switch...which I suppose it could be given what it does!   :D

(I'm guessing you want that commandline switch to be No. 4 instead of the second No. 3?)

Thanks list count fixed.  Yep that switch could be painful so not only does it mean overwrite but it could also be a reminder to use it carefully.

Yeah! I just discovered this neat little tool after seeing their post. Made me register here and follow this thread, in case there are any updates in the future.

Welcome to the site, tomdoe!  :up:

Hamradio, a FARR alias to invoke File Downloader might be nice thing to add.
