    Default VIP - Turbo download page revamped for bulk downloading utilities

    Turbo download is designed for you to use a bulk download utility to download all the design sets available from one page. I (Shawn) can not recommend any product at this time but the best thing to do is consult this thread for a recommendation or search google for 'bulk file downloader'. You will be able to find one for your browser. If you find a good one please post to this thread.


    Note that downloading all designs of one format will take a while as it exceeds over 2 gigabytes without stitch charts.

    Hi,

    Thank you for the turbo download option.

    I tried a browser bulk download extension and it kept crashing my browser, plus it didn't see pes files.

    I tried again with a different extension, this one is Batch Link Downloader

    I went to the page and chose pes, then I opened the extension from my browser icon and it saw every link there was, I shift+A from the top to the bottom and then chose "select" and hit the download button.

    I expected to crash my browser again but much to my surprise it never crashed, but omg all that clicking on "save" was hard, so I put a weight on my enter key and took a shower, the downloads were finished when I came back to the computer.

    Some advice if you are going to try this; have your folder ready for the downloads, you will save a lot of time by making the folder and downloading one thing to it so your browser goes directly to that folder for the next download.

    Close out or minimize everything, have nothing showing on the desktop except for your download windows, this will keep you from accidently opening files during the short lull between the download windows, if your folder window keeps popping up just close it so it can't open again.

    Have something to put on your enter key, 8k+ (double that for files and charts) files is a LOT of clicking.

    My only question is about new files, I don't want to download the whole batch again, but how will I know when new designs are added so I can keep up-to-date?

    Hope this helps

    Sandi

    Hi,

    Yes I have the stitch charts.

    What I did was I used the link for pes and stitch charts, the stitch charts are zip files so when I opened the downloader I specified zip as the format I was looking for, after the program sorted out everything except zip I used crtl+a to select all, hit the select button and then the download button.

    You could probably do both pes and zip from the same download page, but I did mine separately for testing purposes, downloading with the previous bulk download browser addon had taught me to be careful in what I downloaded so I could test for corruption in the files before I recommended any addon to use for this.

    Hope this helps,
