Incomplete File Download

By nise_k ·
Hi friends,

Please tell me if there's any software which could continue file download from the point the last download was broken.
Actually, i have to download files of size more than 20 MB, and it always gives some problem. Any other suggestions about downloading such big files are also welcome.

Thanking u in anticipation.

Download Accerator Plus (DAP)

by kevg In reply to Best Alternative

I use Download Accerator Plus (DAP). I got off TUCOWS.
It has all the advantages of Gozilla (site swiching, resume, ect), as well as the abality to download from several sites at once and then combines the diffrent files into one.
So far I havn't had one corrupted file.

One thing to also try is

by greggen In reply to Incomplete File Download

to set your cache to larger than the files you are downloading. If your connection slows, you can close the download window, and download the file later. Assuming that do don't wait too long and overwrite the file in the cache. When you download the file again, it will read the file up to the point you stopped it, then continue downloading.

how download resumes

by nise_k In reply to One thing to also try is

Hi friend,

Thanx for the reply.

I have increased the cache size in the Internet Options - > Settings of IE 5.
But I am still confused about how the file download will start from the point I stopped it earlier.

Please explain.
