I'm not sure what that thing is supposed to do, but it looks like it's designed to try and continue a download that is interrupted - what I am looking for, is something that does not store files in memory before writing them to the hard-drive, which is what getstore does, and is not good when you're not sure what files your tool is going to be downloading. If they're 10 GB, then you could crash the client computer, and that's no good.

    Um, getstore already does that?

    This part talks about what you're looking for -- I didn't confirm that getstore really does that, did you confirm it?

    I'm not sure what that thing is supposed to do, but it looks like it's designed to try and continue a download that is interrupted -

    Yes, its like that, its a demo of that

      Confirm getstore does what? I don't understand what you're talking about, sorry...
