A downloaded file (VMware-workstation-full-16.1.0-17198959.exe), Dwnlded on 19/Mar/21, ended up with a file size of 0 KB (SEE Image $20210320-mar~1-Download_Final_File_Size=0KB.jpg).

The file size should have been 622 MB (SEE Image $20210320-mar~2-Download_Save-File_Size.jpg).

I was wondering if the file ending in ".exe.part" may have been mistakenly accepted as the real file & renamed to ".exe".

Maybe the file is blocked by your security software.

During download Firefox uses the .part file and once the download is finished then the .part file will replace the actual .exe file. Sometimes security software keeps an handle on the .part file that prevent Firefox from finishing properly.

Do you have .part file with the expected file size ?
