"Beware massive, unnecessary loss of data"
Great user interface, efficient operation, successfully downloads many files
I very purposely rated this one star. It has a VERY serious fatal flaw, I can deal with the crashing, what I can't deal with is the fact that, even after it quits successfully, it occassionally loses ALL your download information. This has happened repeatedly ever since the first version, and has never been addressed, even though a work around would take, at most, a few minutes and a few lines of code to save the backup downloads.cache file and then reuse it at user request when the downloads are lost. I have done this manually on several occassions, and it works fine, but I should not have to go digging around in the system Library folder every time I launch the app on the off chance it will decide to screw me over again. Having lost literally hundreds of gigabytes of data since I first began using Acquisition, while I can recommend it, I certainly would never suggest paying a penny for it until this is addressed.
