@carcass- thanks carcass 4 such a prompt reply, i really appreciate it!
now i think it's crystal clear as a glass of refined water even for a dumbass like me!! :P
But i sincerely think now dis explanation of your's is gonna help a lot of dumbasses like me!!
BTW, i wud like to share a thing wid u what problem may be faced by a lot of persons worldwide who have slow/broken/sporadic/intermittent internet connections like me!
Even though i have a 5 Mbps broadpband plan(which is quite decent as per my country's India standards), but d problem which is faced by a majority of people in india is the flow of data or network is not constant. Every now and then, the network will go off for a minute, two or sometimes 10, 15, 30 minutes etc.
So while i am trying to download the 12 files one by one, what happens is after may be 1GB or 1.5 GB of data has been downloaded, but then my internet connection goes off for 5 minutes, then the 1GB or 1.5 GB data also vanishes completely due to break in transmission of internet supply( totally my ISP fault, nothing to do with u), but it's so annoying i can't tell u in words.
Take my example, till now i have downloaded 4 files out of 12, but i had to try like 7-8 times for the same, i mean my 3-4 attempts came out with nothing even after downloading may be 1- sometimes almost 2 GB. Also, one has to constantly keep a tab whether the download is goin on smoothly or has terminated, u can't just do something in the meanwhile which demands attention, i specifically mean studies!
So a suggestion crops up here, if d files are on torrent(if it's possible), then we(i concur there r a awful lot of people who u would concur wid me here) wudn't hv to face the problem as one can resume in torrent from where one left, i mean d amount of data u hv already downloaded via torrent doesn't vanish if your internet connection goes off while in cloud computing i think it's not possible, at least in microsoft one drive!!
Anyways i again thank a zillion to your time & effort

Regards,
Rashid Hussain

Your suggestion really fits the case. However, before to upload the files on onedrive that for several reason is the best option out there: first of all rarely if never you will meet a problem such as: the drive is off, or in maintenance with Microsoft. Secondly, and more important, the connection is fast and stable. Unfortunately is your country that has such internet problem.

That say, I have already evaluated with the gmatclub team all the viable options:

  • FTP protocol is cumbersome a bit to set up, both in its configuration and usability.
  • Torrent is not possible because to share a file you need seeders and I have serious doubts that people keep up the file in sharing
  • Sharing directly the folder from my PC is impossible for security reasons, of course.

Do not worry: I am uploading all the videos singularly. So ypu can choose the video you need to study about and the size is no more than 200mb the best quality available.

regards

@carcass- het but wait, i hv downloaded all the files except .z11, so don't overhaul it yet! i see u hv already started overhauling the drive!
But as somebody earlier pointed out, i am also not being able to download the .z11 file, i mean i hv tried like 4-5 times at least already, but same problem as earlier faced by somebody- after downloading some part- it shows an error- connection failed! I mean it has happened wid some oder files too, but wid .z11, i am now starting to doubt if it's something else than my internet connection.
Anyways, i will keep trying, as soon as i get it, i will inform u here, so don't overhaul d folder 2009_2015 folder yet!
And what's wid the name carcass- i don't know how u relate urself to carcass, i mean u seem like a "Living Legend" of GMATCLUB to me!
Such promptness, such selfless effort!!

@carcass- finally i was able to download all 12 files.
yes i did it, i did it, i did it!!
was relentlessly trying 4 d last 3 days! finally!!
Even though .z11 took 5-6 attempts.
BTW, i wud like to share some points:
after extracting as explained by you(double clicking the zip folder), cud only get 59 files in total(19.6 GB) as i got some error message as following:

1- C:\Users\koolrash\Downloads\MGMAT_Study_Hall_Thursdays_with_Ron_Verbal_Videos.z02: Checksum error in MGMAT_Study_Hall_Thursdays_with_Ron_Verbal_Videos\119 - Thursdays with Ron- March 26 2015-Sentence Correction The use of And.mp4. The file is corrupt
! There is not enough space on the disk.

2- Write error in the file MGMAT_Study_Hall_Thursdays_with_Ron_Verbal_Videos\79 - Thursdays with Ron - May 2, 2013_Prompt contains blank.avi. Probably the disk is full
! There is not enough space on the disk.

I don't know what dis tells but i just checked my hard disk memory and there is at least 20 Gb free in every drive.
I don't know which 3 files i missed?

But anyways, thanks again a zillion for ur gesture Carcass!

Thanks, regards and i bow my head down to you!

Do not worry about. The folder will not unchanged until all the files are uploaded. Then I delete the old one

Thank you so much to pointed out . the problem is related to Microsoft: sometimes they do not know neither what they are going to do.

A Couple of months ago I had a harsh discussion with the stuff and the sharing links broken. Moreover, I have purchased one terabyte of space.......so for me this is unbelievable.

Let me know if now it works

regards

Hell carcass,

Thanks for sharing the videos. I read really good reviews about Thursday with Ron but on youtube found very few videos.

1 question... You have uploaded videos under different folders. But i cannot see video/file name . As its a huge collection, i thought to download 2-3 files at a time.
Do you have Appendix saying which video to watch first and which 1 to watch after that ? Because that will be very useful and than i don't have to download each and every video from start.

Thanks

Sorry. I do not wanna be misunderstood or rude which is even worse and that is not me.

However, I do not know why is so complicated to follow the link in the first post, navigate through the folders and then OR see the video you want directly online or download it.

there is any zip to download.

Regards

carcass, thank you for your patience. I indeed appreciate you suggesting an alternative. I simply wanted to download the entire library as a matter of convenience.

if you select the entire folder (for instance the 2016 folder) or ALL at one time, then the download will start. And you will have the compressed files. We are talking that one folder is up to almost two gigabytes.

That said, you can extract the folder itself with bandzip.

Here the mac version https://en.bandisoft.com/bandizip.mac/

These are basic skills , though
