- Download files from a
mega.nzlink into a specific directory:
megatools-dl --path path/to/directory https://mega.nz/...
- Interactively choose which files to download:
megatools-dl --choose-files https://mega.nz/...
- Limit the download speed in KiB/s:
megatools-dl --limit-speed speed https://mega.nz/...
megatools dl [--no-progress] [--path <path>] <links>... megatools dl --path - <filelink>
Downloads exported files and folders from Mega.nz. Handles links like:
When downloading individual files, these are placed into
<path>. When downloading folders, the contents of the folder are placed into directory specified by
To export files, you can use Mega.nz web application, or megatools-ls(1)'s
- --path <path>
Local directory to download to. Defaults to the current working directory.
-, remote file will be streamed to stdout.
Disable download progress reporting. This is implied when streaming.
Print names/paths of successfully downloaded files (one per line).
Print all files in a shared folder and choose which files or subfolders to download. When choosing a subfolder, the entire subfolder will be downloaded.
Don’t resume downloads from partially downloaded file. Default is to resume.
- --limit-speed <speed>
Set maximum allowed upload and download speed in KiB/s. This option overrides config file settings. 0 means no limit. When using ParallelTransfers > 1, upload speed limit is applied to each transfer individually.
- --proxy <proxy>
Use proxy server to connect to mega.nz. This option overrides config file settings. More information can be found in libcurl documentation at ⟨https://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/c/CURLOPT_PROXY.html⟩. Some acceptable values are:
none: Disable proxy if it was enabled in the config file.
socks5://localhost:9050: Local SOCKSv5 proxy server
socks5h://localhost:9050: Local SOCKSv5 proxy server with DNS handled by the proxy
- --netif <ifname|ip>
Network interface or local IP address used for outgoing connections. You have to specify IP address bound to some of your local network interfaces, when specifying an IP address.
- --ip-proto <proto>
Which IP protocol to prefer when connecting to mega.nz (v4, v6, or any). This is just an advisory option. Megatools will resolve mega.nz domain, and then use an A or AAAA record based on the stated preference.
- --config <path>
Load configuration from a file
Disable loading .megarc
- --debug [<options>]
Enable debugging of various aspects of the megatools operation. You may enable multiple debugging options separated by commas. (eg.
Available options are:
http: Dump HTTP request/response details (can be used to debug connection/proxy issues)
api: Dump Mega.nz API calls
fs: Dump Mega.nz filesystem (may require
--reloadto actually print something)
cache: Dump cache contents
tman: Dump transfer manager events

Mega.nz filesystem is represented as a tree of nodes of various types. Nodes are identified by a 8 character node handles (eg.
7Fdi3ZjC). Structure of the filesystem is not encrypted.
Megatools maps node tree structure to a traditional filesystem paths (eg.
NOTE: By the nature of Mega.nz storage, several files in the directory can have the same name. To allow access to such files, the names of conflicting files are extended by appending dot and their node handle like this:
/Root/conflictingfile /Root/conflictingfile.7Fdi3ZjC /Root/conflictingfile.mEU23aSD
You need to be aware of several special folders:
Writable directory representing the root of the filesystem.
Trash directory where Mega.nz web client moves deleted files. This directory is not used by megatools when removing files.
Directory containing subdirectories representing your contacts list. If you want to add contacts to the list, simply create subdirectory named after the contact you want to add.
Directories representing individual contacts in your contacts list. These directories contain folders that others shared with you. All shared files are read-only, at the moment.
