Managing downloaded headers
After headers have been downloaded they are automatically saved to an individual file you can open and browse. If the file contains a very large amount of headers, you can select to only all of them or only a range.

Once you are done viewing, reading or selecting articles to decode from that file, you can either keep it or delete it to recover disk space. You can also give more meaningful names to headers you want to keep.
