I was downloading a *.rar and suddenly it stopped. I tried downloading the file again and replaced the file *.part with the more advanced content from the previous download but it just didn't work. There apppeared a message "It can't continue because couldn't find the source of the file on the disc." What can I do to avoid starting from the beginning? If there's a solution, Does it work with download managers too?

Thanks for helping me out.

  • Move the old .part partial download and the final file without the .part that has size 0 to another location.
  • Start a new download and pause it, don't close Firefox.
  • 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.
  • Resume the download in Firefox.
