PSADirector will not work with IE8
Downloading multiple files at once will not work with GoogleChrome®.
Downloading Multiple Files at Once:
You are able to place several files into a folder, and download the complete folder at once. However, Oracle® Java is needed. As of 9/2015, this is not supported by Chrome, but is supported by Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari. If you on a Windows machine and receive an error that Java is not installed, most likely you are not allowed to install Java or plugins because of high internet security settings (Solution: reduce your internet security settings). If you are on a MAC, most likely you are using an older version of MacOS that does not encourage the use of JAVA (Solution: upgrade your MacOS).
Downloading Multiple Files, Using FTP, Server to Server:
This is the fastest method. You will need to set up your connection, we suggest you contact your IT manager to do this. To set up, go to: "MANAGE" > Profiles" > "FTP Server". Credentials needed include: "Profile Name", "Server Address", "Username", "Password", and "Custom Directory (if any)".
Dial up or DSL is not recommended.
