We have a business that provides weekly audio files to us via their SharePoint portal.  There are 7 semi-large files each week.  They are stored in the 'Documents' area of the SharePoint portal.  Is there a free way to automate the download of everything within a specific folder on SharePoint?  I wish they were using FTP instead, but they are not ;(

You can map a drive to that SharePoint library for example name it  R:

and use Robocopy or similar tool to perform the sync.
