Thank you for your reply.
But unfortunately, that's not what I'm after. See my dataset is large (about 2+GB) and uploading that over my current internet connection is impractical.
The dataset is public and available for download from its website and I was wondering if I could download it directly to Floydhub. I wrote a script that does just that and tried running it on Floydhub but after it had completed, I found no trace of the data anywhere on my account.
Going through the forums, I came across a few links that explained how to do just that (http://docs.floydhub.com/home/using_datasets/#creating-a-dataset-from-downloads) but that's giving me a 404.
Wonder if there's someway to do that.
