CINCH (Capture INgest and CHecksum Tool) facilitates batch downloading and ingest of Internet-accessible documents and/or images to a central repository.
Function:Web Capture
Content type:Web


A project to develop a bulk download service to a central repository that will maintain original file timestamps, extract file level metadata, create file checksums and periodically validate checksums for continued file integrity.

Users merely need to upload a list of URLs to download and when the process completes they can download the requested files and file metadata to their local environment.
