Sharescanner is a Linux re-implementation of the Windows-only sharescan v2. It indexes Samba shares and lets the user download files over the network. The File list displays all the indexed files along with their size and location. The Queue list displays the current download queue, including the status, progress, size, and location of each item. Each download can be paused and resumed.
