    I'm trying to download all of the files off a server but the process would take far too long. Is there a way to automate the process, preserving filenames and folder structure? Thank you!

    You could FTP into the site if allowed and drag and drop the files using something like FileZilla.

    If they're on a webpage, you might want to give Web Devil a shot.

    What kind of a server is this? That's kind of important.

    If it was a regular ol' file server, you could just select it and choose File > Duplicate

    The task has become odd and more difficult since the integration of the downloads window in Safari. But it still can be done. Select all the links on the page, and copy it. Got to the downloads pane (or whatever it's called now), and paste it. It should download everything at once.

    You could also use the Activity window to copy all the links on that page.
