I am facing a situation where downloaded mseed files are increasing in size and number after they are read, response removed and written again. I understand the reason of increase in number but the big increase in size is not making sense to me. To get around this issue I am thinking of the following
Use mass downloader with response removal. More specifically I require the download_helpers of mass downloader to check if any files are missing. If there is a way to do this please let me know.
Directly address the issue of increase in size while writing the mseed files.
EDIT: I could not attach the codes as new users are not allowed.
