Add "Skip" to Download File Action

Currently, the “Download File” action can do one of:

Overwrite
Rename
Halt

when a filename already exists.

Can you please add “Skip” to the options?
So if the file already exists, it does nothing except continue?

That will save a lot of time when you want to update a folder with new files.
I download from folders with thousands of files and this will make it much faster.
I am guessing this will be a simple add?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Hendrik,

you can produce a list of files in a folder using the “List of files” action, and then use the “Keep/remove matching” action to remove files that already exist from the list of files to download. Therefore, an option for skipping files is not really necessary.
