You could use wget to download it.

I guess that will depend on your network. If your shared location is connected through network which has high speed data transfer (for ex - LAN has 10mbps data transfer speed), that would be faster otherwise WebClient method would be faster considering you have a high speed internet connection.

Why don't you just try it for one file? It would just be few lines of code.
