Yes, you can download mutiple files in batch. DriveHQ FileManager works just like Windows Explorer. You can easily drag and drop files between local and remote folders.
When sharing files, please make sure that the folder is shared to your registered DriveHQ email address, or shared to your user name. If you don't see the shared folder in your "DriveHQ Share" folder, then, please contact your friend asking him to share it again to your DriveHQ username. Or, your friend can more easily share files using Group Account service. With Group Account service, your friend can create sub-accounts; he can then share folders to his sub-accounts and give you a sub-account to logon DriveHQ.com.
Please make sure to watch the flash demo. DriveHQ FileManager is a very powerful application. It is easy as drag-and-drop; but it can also be more complicated if you are using advanced sharing features with multiple levels of access rights. Just spend a few more minutes, once you figure out how the sharing works, I am sure you will like it a lot -- you cannot find more powerful, flexible and easier sharing features than DriveHQ's.
