I have already searched for a solution in the forum but didn’t find any.
My problem is that the download of tick data is extremely slow since yesterday. I have already downloaded some data previously and that was quite fast. Yesterday I installed the program on my secondary computer because it has more storage and since then, the download is extremely slow on both PC’s. It takes about one second to download one hour of data and after one minute, the data downloaded is only a few hundred kilobytes.
Is this a known problem? Any ideas what could cause this and how to fix it?
So when I download something regularly my connection speed is anywhere from 2 – 7 MB/s, but when I use the TickDownloader, it is mostly at 0.02 MB/s, the highest I have seen today and yesterday was 0.03 MB/s. Before that, it was faster, though I can not remember changing anything.
I have already uninstalled and reinstalled the program, restart my PC of course and even tried to disable some plugins to see if that changes anything but nothing but nothing has worked until now.
Does anybody have an idea?
On my PC’s it is still as slow as it was before. 🙁

Yes you are right. The start of the download was pretty good for me, but then the speed dropped until it stopped.
But I found out that there is a new version of 4.5.0, I made the update to the new version and the speed is OK again, try it.

Version 4.5 – Fixed issue with slow data download speed
Thank you for the advice, I have tried it but it is still the same issue as before. 🙁
I have no idea why. I have even uninstalled the program a few times, downloaded the new version again and installed it again, it is still downloading just as slow as with version 4.4.0. Of course I have also restarted my PC. That also didn’t work.
Does anybody have an idea what might be the problem?
Unfortunately I have no idea, version 4.5.0 should solve the slow download.
In which folder do you have a tickdownloader installed?
Ideally into c:\tickdownloader or d:\ ………
NO to c:\program files\ …
It is challenging me to completely uninstall delete all the disk entries, installing a new version 4.5. to a new folder.
If this does not help, I really do not know.
