AOD backup download corruption

When downloading a backup from AOD, if the file is > 1GB it will fail and corrupt the file. I spent a lot of time discoving this and when I reached out to Atlassian, they referred me to a near 2-year-old bug report (

Why is this known issue (which has to affect almost every user of scale who wants to migrate) not either:

1. Resolved or

Hi Zans,

Thanks for the feedback. I tried using precisely that wget ("wget -t 0 --user="MYUSER" --password="MYPASS"") but still had corruption.
