Re: cant able to download data

not being a wget fundi - there are lots out here that are better with this - I 
have a different suspicion:

if you have wget installed in what I suspect is c:\windows\system32\ and you 
run your command from that directory then wget will try to place the downloaded 
files in that directory as well and will probably fail due to access 
restrictions imposed by Windows. You probably had to get yourself elevated 
access in order to place the wget.exe file in that directory to start with. 

My suggestion, therefore: Try this from another directory and - if you can - 
from something on another drive, just to prove the point.

Let's say, for instance, in D:\MyWget_Downloads\ run the command 

c:\windows\system32\wget.exe --user YOUR-Earthdata-USERNAME --ask-password 
--no-check-certificate -i PATH-TO-GHRC_URLs.txt

with the file PATH-TO-GHRC_URLs.txt also residing in this directory on the D 
drive. Your resulting downloads should then also reside there. 

(Obviously, adjust the drive and directory specifications according to your 
system's setup. You can also try other directories on your C drive, but I have 
had problems from time to time trying to put files into C:\temp\ in recent 
versions of Windows - apparently MS are trying to steer people away from mixing 
their own use of the system drive with what Windows does.)

Good Luck, 

Gerd D.
