The Retrieval Tool is a utility which is used to transfer (or "retrieve") digital content from DuraCloud to your local file system. It uses the command line (also called the terminal) on your local system to access your DuraCloud account and transfer the content you specify to a local file location of your choice. The content you retrieve also remains in DuraCloud; no content is deleted.

Familiarity with the command line will help you in using the retrieval tool:
