Hi Oleg,

I've got the following problem. I want to download a file that contains just the "302 file moved" info of the file that it points to. For example, if I put this url in the project:

https://archive.org/download/pdfy-MgN0H1joIoDVoIC7/The_AWK_Programming_Language.pdf

and download it, I get two files. One contains this:

<HTML><HEAD><META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="0; URL=../../../https@ia802309.us.archive.org/25/items/pdfy-MgN0H1joIoDVoIC7/The_AWK_Programming_Language.pdf"><TITLE>302 File moved</TITLE></HEAD></HTML>

and another one the target PDF itself. And I need just this response:

<HTML><HEAD><META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="0; URL=../../../https@ia802309.us.archive.org/25/items/pdfy-MgN0H1joIoDVoIC7/The_AWK_Programming_Language.pdf"><TITLE>302 File moved</TITLE></HEAD></HTML>

without downloading the 8 Mb PDF. I tried excluding all other server urls except archive.org, adding skipdisposition and other parameters. No matter what I do I always either get two files or none. What exactly do I need to do to get just the "302 File moved" html file?

Thank you.

So far there is no option to skip creating redirect files. However you may delete PDFs after the download easily - use the Find Contents button on toolbar, search for *.pdf files there, select them all in the list and delete.

Would this work?
