It is not possible to download a subset of the output files into a single job archive. However, there are several workarounds that might be useful:

1. Do not create the checkpoint file. By default, the "Save Checkpoint File" is unchecked on the Job Options Advanced tab. Leave it unchecked, and the *.chk file won't be created (will be deleted, actually) at the end of a WebMO job.

2. Only download the outfile file(s) you actually want. When Viewing Results, click the All FIles link in the Navigation panel on the left. This will display all the files created by that job. For any individual file(s) you want to download, choose binary and click the link. this will download those files as individual files, not as a zip or tar file. Note: the All Files link is a WebMO Pro/Enterprise feature.

3. If necessary, login to the webmo account, navigate to the job directory, and delete (or move) the offending *.chk file. Then download the job archive.
