megatools get [--no-progress] [--path <path>] <remotepaths>... megatools get --path - <remotefile>
Downloads files from your Mega.nz account.
NOTE: If you want to download entire directories, use megatools-copy(1).
- --path <path>
Local path to download to. If this path is a directory, files are placed into the directory. If this path doesn’t exist, and it’s parent directory does, the file will be downloaded to a specified file (this only works if you specify exactly one remote path).
-, remote file will be streamed to stdout.
Disable download progress reporting. This is implied when streaming.
Don’t resume downloads from partially downloaded file. Default is to resume.
- -u <email> , --username <email>
Account username (email)
- -p <password> , --password <password>
Never ask interactively for a password
Reload filesystem cache
- --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
Show version information
One or more remote files to download.
Remote path to a single file to stream.
Download file to the current directory:
$ megatools ls /Root /Root /Root/README $ megatools get /Root/README $ ls README
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.
