Downloading Data via SSL and BitsTransfer (Sync)

by Sep 17, 2018

A very convenient built-in way to download files, even with SSL connections, is Start-BitsTransfer. It also sports a progress bar that shows the actual download status. Here is a working sample:

$url = ''
$OutFile = "$home\desktop\videoNasa2.mp4"

Start-BitsTransfer -Source $url -Destination $OutFile -Priority Normal -Description 'NASA Movie'
