Add a common task experience
What is a common task? A common task is a download task that uses an HTTP or FTP protocol. We can click the "Add Common Task" button, and then in the pop-up "Add Task" dialog box in the URL URL to fill in the need to download the task of the address, and then click on "Start Download" can start an offline download task.
To be noted, this download task downloaded to the file, not stored on your local disk, but stored in the Thunder of the server. Therefore, this download task does not occupy the user's network resources and system resources, and its download speed is far greater than our ADSL and other ordinary broadband download speed. After the task is added, the user can completely shut down the computer and let the task download itself on the Thunder server.

So why bother to download it? Download the resource directly, why not download the task offline to the Thunder server, and then download it from the Thunder server to the local disk?.
I believe that users who often download resources on the Internet will have this experience, due to the user network, the other network and other environmental factors, some resources, especially the download speed of foreign downloads can not reach the user broadband should download speed, some even can reach a few kb/s to more than 10 kb/s download speed, So, in order to download these resources, users have to wait for a long time, not only time-consuming, but also a waste of electricity.
If you download the resource first to the Thunder server, so no matter how long it takes, do not waste our electricity bill (because you can shut down the computer so that the task automatically in the Thunder server). And then from the more stable high-speed Thunder server using 100KB/S or 200kb/s or even higher download speed to download the resource, then download the resources will inevitably reduce the time a lot, this is "Thunder offline download" a big benefit.
Furthermore, if you see a resource that needs to be downloaded, but you are working or games, do not want to download tasks affect your work or games, then, you can use the "Thunder offline download" To download the task back, because "Thunder offline download" Neither consumes your system resources, nor occupy your network bandwidth. Download the task to the Thunder server, you can choose another time to download the resource really back.
It should be noted that when a user adds a task, "Thunderbolt offline download" would like to detect the size of the resource. For the "Thunder offline download" in the storage space, based on user-level differences do have restrictions, when the download task is greater than the remaining space in storage space, you will not be able to add the task.
