Automatic downloading of files

Has anyone found a way of automatically downloading files weekly from someone's dropbox?

I need to download mp3 files every week. The file name is the same every week, just the file modified date has changed.

Ideally I'd like something like Internet Download Manager to dowload and overwrite each of these files on my hard drive each week .

Hi
First if all, you can change the protocole because having files with the same name isn’t advisable,
Secondly, you can rename the downladed file each week befor the new file comes in on your local folder with a different name which will cause dropbox to mirror it to your cloud, then, the new recording will replace the old one but you’ll have it because you’ve already saved it With a different name.
The only downside is that by the end of the 4th week, you’ll have 4 files which will take up your space.

Sorry this isn't what I'm looking for.

The file name needs to be the same so that it over-writes the existing one. I'm already doing this using FTP but wondered if dropbox would offer the same facility
