The following question received by the GES DISC Help Desk was answered by data support personnel, and is provided here for community information.
Q. "I was consistently trying to download the TRMM 3B42 V7 data using the link but failed. I was using the '.json' shapefile filter which was perfectly able to subset my desired area of interest from the map. But the problem is, I feel like I am not understanding the use of other filters of the appeared tab of the link and further needed steps to finally download / get the data in my machine."
A. "Please follow the steps below to download the dataset:

1) Navigate to, and tailor using your shapefile.

2) Select collection
3) Download all
4) Download data
5) Download each nc4 granule individually OR use the download script (recommended for your large order)
