Saved me hours!

I used this yesterday to download a ton of photos from a site I am redoing for a client. She wanted to keep the photos but didn't need anything else from the site. I didn't have to bother with FTP and had all the photos downloaded into a folder on my computer within minutes. I will use this plugin again.

It does exactly what I need

I love this plugin! It does exactly what I need. It gets everything in my media library and puts it in a nice zip file. This is important for me because I like having a backup of my media library without having to download the whole site, or having to go into cpanel to FTP it. Thanks for creating this!
