Downloading multiple data files with wget for Windows

by dijudi89 » Fri Oct 29, 2021 8:42 am America/New_York

Dear all,

I am downloading multiple data files with wget for Windows as described here: https://disc.gsfc.nasa.gov/data-access#windows_wget

My .txt file contains 48 URLs to .nc4 files (half-hourly, 24hrs); However, the downloaded files count only 24 in total and it seems like the download works for each 2nd file only, and I cannot figure out how this happens. Any ideas/ experiences with this issue?

Many thanks in advance!
Judith

Hello,

We are still examining your question. Can you inform us:
- how you were able to generate the .txt file with the URls; and
- can you share a copy of the file for which only half of the URLs worked? (If you cannot attach it here you may email our Help Desk.)
