If you are not streaming but instead downloading podcast episodes, then there is one thing that you should be aware of. That is free space left on your harddrive. Because if there is no space, your download requests fail.
Thanks to Ziepod, you shouldn't worry much about how much space left on your harddrive, because it automatically checks available space and if it goes below defined threshold, it warns you and stops all download activity till there is enough space available. This is especially useful feature if you are using Ziepod along with portable flash drives since they are not as spacious as trandional harddrives.
You can adjust this threshold thru your 'Preferences.' Here is how to customize it:
Open up your preferences (use CTRL+P keyboard shortcut)
Switch to the 'Advanced' tab.
Press 'Set Advanced Settings' button which opens up another dialog window
In that window, you will see box entitled 'Adjust Free Space Threshold'. Check the box to allow Ziepod to freeze downloads automatically when there is not much space left.
Set which harddrive to check and the amount of minimum free space. By default, it checks the 'C' drive.
Press 'OK' button to apply changes immediately.
That's it. Hope you like this neat feature. Do you have one? We'd like to hear your suggestions and experience with Ziepod. Please share yours with us by using Ziepod's Feedback dialog, which can be launched with ALT+F keyboard shortcut.
Have a great week,
