How to resume incomplete downloads in firefox using Windows 7?

Posted

So I've been download a file which is 1.80 GB, I let it download overnight but when I checked it. The download stopped in 1.60 GB and I don't really feel like downloading it all over again.

I searched in Google for some ways to resume it, there are some that seems to be working. But when I tried, it won't work. Like the .PART method, since I'm using Windows 7 the incomplete and the .PART file won't merge (or whatever they call it)!

Is there a way to merge those two files? Or am I doing it wrong? Please help, I'm like 20mb-200mb (or whatever the leftover is) away from finishing that damn download.

  1. Move the old .part partial download and the final file without the .part that has size 0 to another location.
  2. Start a new download and pause it, don't close Firefox.
  3. Copy the two files (.part and 0 byte final) that you moved above back to the download location to replace the new files that were created.
  4. Resume the download in Firefox.

If that doesn't work then the server may not support resuming.
