I know about wget -c option to allow resuming resumable download, but can I do multiple resumable download with wget or another command line tool?

Aria2 is the best and most powerful command line download tool. It can do everything wget can and much more.


Aria2 is also used as a plugin with uGet so one can use the power of aria2 with the user-friendly GUI of uGet.



Do you mean this ?

For example you want to download multiple files (which are unknown) from an homepage :

wget -rvi * http://homepage.com

v is for verbose, r is for recursive and i is for file with following feature/attribute - here feature/attribute is: * for arbitrary files.

First to say : not every domain is allowing wget.

Second to say : if you want any files, you could download some traps too ...

Here is little overview of else commands to work with :


Somebody told me that scp would be safer and perform more stable downloads than wget.

  • scp requires SSH to be set up though.
