I can successfully (scrape) / download image files from a URL list on my server.
However; there appears to be a size limit as nothing downloads over 1Mg size and 80% of the images on the list of 10,000 target URLs are 2Mg images taken in high resolution with my Nikon.
I like this tool and want to purchase it but I cannot use it if I cannot make it work.
Are there setting or additional commands I need to put into the formula to target larger images?
I have tried formula:
=DownloadFile(E2,"E:20231114 ZOEY DOWNLOAD URL BACKUP numbered",M2)
Same result for both.
Only the smaller images appear in the receiving file.
I have left it all night to execute.
It appears to locate all the targeted 10,000 files on the Server. I know this because if I delete the receiving image directory Microsoft gives me a message that it is deleting 9,600 files; however, only 4,500 are visible in the directory.
I also noticed that the files in the folder where sorting by size, with the smallest files completing the download first. Then sorting alphabetically as the larger files downloaded.
Is it just a question of time to allow the larger files to download?
I realize it would be impossible to predict how long it should take because of all the possible variations on internet connection speed, CPU clock speed and the response of the Server etc.
Is there any other reason or method I can try?
Batches of 1,000?
Are there other settings?
Any assistance is appreciated.
Please let me know - thank you.
