Problems downloading data

I’m having issues downloading the data (Season 1). It’ll get around 10-15GB downloaded, then it fails with a network error. I haven’t had issues downloading ~250GB files before, so not really sure how to fix this.

I’ve had this issue downloading from both the CDN as well as using azcopy.

Thoughts?

Generally azcopy is the most reliable way to get the data, and you should make sure that you have the latest version (v10). It supports resuming failed downloads and viewing error logs. You can see here for more information:

It’s possible the CDN content has not yet propagated to servers near you, so those links may become faster as the competition goes on.

I think it must have been the CDN not being ready. Tried again this morning with success!
