How can I limit the amount of tasks downloaded? All of a sudden, I have 20 tasks for processing. Some have completion dates that are only a day or two away and, because of the other BOINC projects I have, will not complete on time and will have to be manually aborted.

Hi Bob, you can play with the "Store at least / up to an addition X days of work" setting in Options -> Computing Preferences. I'm not aware of a per-project option, although maybe some of our other volunteers have a solution?

Btw, aborting any particular C@H does not harm our results in any way, so its completely fine to abort or let them expire.

Thanks, I'll give it a try.
