 +===== Downloading data =====
 +
 +The download option allows you to retrieve the historical tick data from the remote web servers and store it locally on your drive. ​ When you select this option, you will be asked for the time range of the data to download. ​ You can either select a specific begin and end date, or you can simply select the "quick pick" options such as "Last 1 year" which automatically set the begin and end dates to download data for the past year.
 + 
 +Once you select "​OK",​ the system will automatically start downloading information. ​ The system automatically verifies all the data and will automatically fill any gaps with the following rules:
 + 
 +  * If the data already exists on your local drive, it will not try to download it again. ​ If the data does not exist on your local drive, it will download it and store in its native compressed format.
 +
 +  * If the data is corrupted for any reason, the file will be automatically downloaded again (an error message will be displayed).
 +
 +  * If there are any other errors while downloading,​ these will be displayed in the "​Log"​ box.  See the "​Trouble-shooting"​ section for more information on understanding errors you may see in this box.
 + 
 +As your data is downloading,​ it will display information detailing its current progress. ​ While it is doing this, you can still continue to work with other symbols.
 +
 +===== Cancelling a download or export operation =====
 +
 +If you wish to cancel an operation (such as a download or export) right-click on the symbol and select 'Stop processing'​.
