    Question 5 months ago on Introduction


    Is it working in mac? Where we need to put folders if there is no c drive.


    Answer 5 months ago

    Yeah, this definitely works on mac. Just have to change folder paths in the script.
    you can open the download script in a text editor and just change folder locations. It would be better if you can use the github version (link provided in the article)
