Archive Download


These APIs enable downloading of multiple files or folders as an archive from MetaDefender Vault.


In order to start the process please follow these steps:

  1. Create an archive by calling Create Archive

  2. Wait until the archive is created by polling Get Archive Status

  3. Once the archive is available, you can obtain it by calling Download Archive

Error Handling

If an error prevents you from downloading the archive or you simply wish to stop the process or discard the archive, you can call Cancel Archive Download. Please note that it’s not mandatory to call this endpoint after a successful download because there is an automatic cleanup mechanism that will remove archives after they are downloaded.
