Frequently Asked Questions
Join our Discord if you need assistance.

How do I download in bulk?

The easiest way is to use wget, you can find a guide for using wget for Windows users here, and a guide for Linux users here.

The command that will usually work for downloading files is:
wget -m -np -c -U "faq" -w 2 -R "index.html*" "<your url here>"

Wget can be installed from most distribution repos and the windows binary can be found here

Other helpful software to use includes jDownloader, DownThemAll, and GNU Parallel

Why do you run this?

As put by Archive Team, technology is business, and in business, money often takes priority over ethics. With the law perpetually lagging behind technology and business, there is often nothing between you and getting screwed over besides your own volition.

Living without the knowledge of our past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots. Corporations do not contemplate their own inevitable end. At least, they don’t do it in public, unless they are in really bad shape. When times are good, those thoughts are pushed away, and end users are encouraged to do the same. When times are bad, they tend to go very bad, very quickly - if you’re lucky, you’ll have an announcement. Your data is never totally safe. Backing up your data is always necessary, even if it’s stored elsewhere.

The Internet is a worldwide platform for sharing information. It is a community of common interests.

Our mission at The Eye is to preserve pieces of digital history. We are digital librarians.
