I just downloaded iGetter and wanted to know if it can do unlimited downloads. In the Preferences menu it says that I can choose max downloads as 1-10, but is there anyway to make that number unrestricted?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Hello Shuki,
There is no limit over the number of downloads that you can download with iGetter. The option that you're talking about most probably is "Max simultaneous downloads". Since v2.0 we limited this option to 5 simultaneous downloads (then in some of the next versions we increased it to 10) because more than 10 simultaneous downloads may only slow down your downloading (the available bandwidth will be distributed between all running jobs) as well as iGetter will use more CPU and memory resources. iGetter will complete the entire queue faster if "Max Simultaneous Downloads" is between 2 and 10 according to your connection type.

In other words you don't need to run the entire queue at once. This may only slow down your downloading.
