Configure the downloading process when transferring files and folders from remote server to the local machine so that it fits into allocated bandwidth, uses proper file transfer mode and preserves or modifies file dates.
|Limit transfer speed||Set transfer speed limit for Download File Action to reserve bandwidth for other Tasks or applications.|
|Transfer mode||Choose file transfer mode:
|Preserve file date and time||If enabled, downloaded files will have the same date and time as the ones on the remote machine. If disabled, date and time of downloaded files will be changed to current date and time.|
|Speed units||Allows precise specifying of speed limit in KB/s, MB/s and GB/s.|
|This Action is enabled||Action is performed only if checkbox is enabled. Action can be disabled by removing the mark from This Action is enabled checkbox. When disabled, Action will not be executed.|
|Advanced fallback options||Allows to manage and handle advanced fallback options by selecting which failures will lead to execution of workaround operations.|
- The Text transfer mode is only suitable for ASCII files, that are single-byte encoded plain text files (for example,
.txt) such as UTF-8. Other encodings such as UTF-16 and UTF-32, and other text file formats such as
.rtfwill be corrupted. Always choose Binary transfer mode to keep the file unchanged.
- Amazon S3 and WebDAV connections does not support ASCII text transfer mode.
- The Preserve file date and time option may depend on server protocoll such as FTP, SFTP, Amazon S3 and WebDAV, and also on server operating system and software.
- Many file systems support more than one file timestamp such as created and modified. Usually, only the modified date is preserved. For example, Amazon S3 folders do not support timestamps at all.
