EerieTransfer is a simple free download manager that allows you to download a file using multiple proxies at the same time to bypass servers’ speed restrictions. It also has a zip archive tester which redownloads only corrupt portions.

Features

  • Download files through multiple connections at once.
  • Use a different elite proxy per connection to evade server speed throttling.
  • Automatically select a new proxy if one fails.
  • Test and repair zip archives by redownloading corrupt portions.
  • Multi-threaded, one thread per connection so a connection error doesn’t hang the transfer.

Motivation

Well, I wanted to download a 375GB zip archive, but the download speed was 400KB/s. So I tried several download managers to download the file with multiple connections at once, but I was only getting 400KB/s download speed all the same.

Then I remembered I could download from multiple proxies at once to hide my IP address. I search for a download manager which allowed this and found Net Transport. After adding proxies by hand and having to replace them also by hand every time one failed, I finally downloaded the file in a few days at about 3MB/s.

When the download was finished, I tested the archive and to my dismay it had errors. So I thought, “why don’t I make my own multiple proxy download manager?”.

EerieTransfer was born!

After a few days of programming and testing, my ISP thought I was using to much bandwidth for too long, so my connection was capped at 8/0.4 MBit/s.

Since I could no longer download the archive at this speed, I remembered I could try to test it and download only the corrupt parts, so I wrote the zip tester. It worked, I had to download only 5GB to repair it.

I improved the GUI a little since then to release it here.
