Hello Oleg

Me again!

If a folder on a remote site contains a number of files, and I don`t the the names of them all, is there a way to download them all?

Kind regards

Fred F.

If you know at least how these files could be named, you can use URL Macros to try all possible combinations. I just answered a simular question in the Offline Explorer Enterprise forum. For example:

http://example.com/page{:1..10}{:a..z}{:a..z}.html

Hello Oleg

That looks a bit complicated, BUT I will have a look at the other forum and see if I can follow what is happening.

So far, I know they are on mms:// locations, and are all .wma files and have at least one `-` somewhere in the name.


Kind regards

Hello Oleg

I`m afraid I can`t quite get my head around this one.

The files are stored :

mms://route.xxx/route/xxx(n)-xxx(n).wma

Does this make sense and can you offer any further advice?

Regards

To clarify a little:

The mms://route.xxx/route/ will be constant,

I can identify some of the first part of the title /xxx(n) sometimes, so that need not be variable, but the second part after the `-` can vary from 2 to say 10 characters, but not normally that many.

Does this help?

Regards

Will have another look at your example to see if I can work out the system.

Well this is quite hard to retrieve. You can try all combinations with URL Macros, but it is billions of URLs.
