    So you are having trouble obtaining these files I take it? Are you trying to download this all at once? 

    I can see that you have a heck of a lot of submissions (5k+) so my suggestion at this point would be to try to download it via a partial download (mentioned in Step 4 in this guide:  http://www.jotform.com/help/73-How-to-Download-Form-Submissions-to-Excel-CSV-PDF) which talks about doing this by adjusting the timeframe to make the amount of submissions you are downloading lower then if necessary you can merge them into a master file. Since there are so many what is probably happening is that the connection is timing out possibly as mentioned in the third option due to excessive data loads.
