Was initially trying FTP, but the server doesn't seem to like me very much - it'll go through a bunch of directories, noting that it's already downloaded some of the files, all good. After a few seconds of this, the FTP server becomes unresponsive. Clearly, not a grand solution - but it's somewhat out of my control, since it's a shared host doing this.
Is there a better way to access the files at this point? Or should I just keep trying?
