Download quota

  shakadimas2000 20:58 19 Jan 2004

i am a university student. but our uni has a fixed download quota of 500 mb. n if we exceed that limit we get banned from internet. so i m looking for a software which can stop downloads when it reaches certain limit. any kind of help is wel comed. thank you.

Ask your university for the monitoring software - if they have a limit they're almost bound to have a monitor program for you, or know what to use - if not then they should have.

Not a help because I don't know of any software that can do that for you (even if there was you would probably have to have it installed on the uni server) but can you not write down the file size every time you download something and then transfer it to an Excel spreadsheet which would keep an account of it for you? Is the download quota fixed at 500mb for the whole time you are there or is it monthly, weekly, quarterly or what.

Loads of software available here,but as was stated it possibly needs installed on the Uni's server.I am off to have a look thru the links that google pulled in,see if any are free and where they need installed.

Why would it be downloading something when you are not there?

Surely when you start downloading something you know how big that file is??

500Mb a day is a LOT of downloading!!!
