There is a specific file on a customers server which I require to connect to one of their services. The contents of the file are confidential and the file is not intended for the public.

Thus, the file is not "commonly downloaded", and every time I need to download it, I get this warning:

enter image description here

I have to download that files sometimes multiple times a day (the contents of the file change periodically) and, every time, I have to click through this little annoyance.

The Phishing and malware detection page only explains how to disable the feature completely, which is not what I want at all.

Can I disable this feature for a single given URL?

You could write a macro/automation-script to automatically detect the URL in the Omnibar and click the button. That’s what I did a while back when I was writing a Chrome extension and got tired of constantly having to click several times in different places to get it to install every time I made a change and wanted to test. – Synetech Nov 2 '12 at 2:05
@Synetech: Nice idea. Thanks :) Though, for my own download, I'm currently simply using a .cmd that uses wget to download the file when I need it. – Oliver Salzburg Nov 2 '12 at 9:46

Because I couldn't find a way to resolve this properly in Chrome, I decided to resolve it outside of Chrome.

Given that I wanted to whitelist one specific file, I can also deal with this one specific download in a different manner.

CD "C:\Users\Oliver\Documents\SU"
wget --no-check-certificate --output-document=connect.bat --user=oliver --password=secret

Now I just pinned that to my Start menu and everything is better than it ever was.

There's no client-side fix for this at the moment. There are some suggestions here for the server side:

Yeah, I've come across that question, but it's not applicable in my situation. – Oliver Salzburg Sep 13 '12 at 10:50
