This is my 6th attempt to download a 1.3gig movie file. I have already turned off my virus check so that Firefox will download past the 1 gig mark. However, this morning my internet connection failed and the download was gone, though it is not completed to its full amount, just a little over 1 gig.
Is there any way to recover and resume this download from the existing, almost completed file? The server does support resuming downloads.
This is a nice trick. Can FireFox include this as a routine option?
A correction to the details of the instructions above :
You have to start the fresh download in a new folder. Then pause the download
and replace the file named largefile.exe.part there with the older file of the same
name from the unfinished download folder.
[ If you must use the same folder for downlaoding, then put the older
largefile.exe.part file in some other temporary folder before beginning
I saw something amazing today!
It might not be a great help but, i would still like to share.
I searched for the exact file name that i was downloading. I found a torrent for the same, alternatively you can search for the same file with a different name and then rename the incompletely downloaded file to the name that is in the torent.
Make sure that the download folder location is the same, and tada! the file will resume its download.
Torrent Client will pick the older file and start downloading
