How do I download a folder from a directory display on a web page?

Posted

I have been sent a link in order to download a program which has been sent to me in a possibly corrupt form. The link opens as a directory viewer, from which I can open sub-directories. But how can I download these files?

Just a guess, but is it possible that the link opened a ZIP archive and Firefox downloaded and launched it from a temp folder? In that case, you might be able to drag and drop or use the Extract command to move the desired files to a more convenient location.

On the other hand, if you are still viewing the files on the web server and there are no hyperlinks or buttons associated with the individual files, you may need to check with the person who sent you the link.
