InterbankFX Tick data download fail

#1 Postby maxr » Tue May 22, 2012 6:27 am

EURUSD GBPUSD tick data downloads on InterbankFX are failing, apparently after the download is complete - the progress meter shows 100% downloaded, then 100% unzipped, then finally the message 'can not download from server' appears. I've downloaded tick data successfuly from this broker for several other pairs (even though 2 years of data is a 10 min download on a 4.5. Mbps connection).

Hmm - to answer my own question (!, seems like the data downloads OK in 6 month chunks - maybe unzipping 53M ticks for over 2 years was making my PC fall over?

When you download data please make sure that no RAM-consuming and CPU-consuming programs are launched.
If the download does not work anyway then try downloading data in parts.

I had a similar problem here, but it looks like you figured it out. I did it in 1 year to 14 month chunks and it works ok.
