How to download entire LOTW log

This week I reactivated my LOTW status, as I had stupidly allowed my certificate to expire.  Long story, but I lost my log adi file on my old computer (yes, yes, stupid, careless, I know) but my entire log is uploaded to LOTW and I would like to download the whole log as an adi file from LOTW into my HRD logbook.  Anyone know how to get LOTW to create this adi file?  Tried google but no joy.  I know it can be done because I did it a long time ago once before.  I tried "download report" with all the selection fields wide open, but it only downloaded around 900 QSOs when in reality I have over 6,000 qsos uploaded as LOTW itself reports.  No doubt it is staring me in the face, but I can't seem to download *all* of my QSOs.  (At least they are secure on LOTW...).

OK, that worked.  Screwed me up at first because when you do the link first you have to log in.  Then it goes right to the download.  Thanks Mike!  Got all 6,500+ log entries in the log now.

Hi Mike the link worked but I did not get any of the signal reports.  Is there a way to do that?  Thanks - de NO0T

Copied from this page:

If you use ARRL's Logbook of the World, you'll notice that a signal report is NOT part to the required information - only call, date, time, band and mode. In fact, signal reports cannot even be entered on LoTW.
