Download Data folder

Hi! I'm trying to download all the data folder of a worksheet. I see the GUI permits you to download it one single file at once. I have many files (about 2000 files), and I'm unable to download all the folder at once. I'm using VirtualBox at Windows and it's Sage 5.0 version.

How can I do it?

Thank you! :)

What is the problem? Do you get an error message?

I would use Sage to zip up all the files into one file:

from subprocess import call
call("zip -r %s/*"%DATA,shell=True)

Thank you! that's it!! :) And if I want to erase that file? where is it saved? And what is the command to delete it?

I don't know why it's not letting you, but there is another way of doing it. /home/USER/.sage/sage_notebook.sagenb inside the VirtualBox filesystem will have all the notebooks, and you can simply copy it over to another installation.

Maybe I didn't say it clearly, if so I apologize. I want to save all the files of the data folder of one worksheet in the host computer (windows), not all the worksheets. I'm quite new with this featurings in Sage 5.0, I don't know how to exit of the GUI :S. If there's a way to do it in the console it would be fine if you were more specific :S. Sorry for that, I'm a new user.
