    Hi, when i am doing a direct download through IE6 and it stops midway or the internet disconnects before it finishes downloading, is it possible to retrieve the part that has already downloaded? Or is it kept somewhere while it is downloading so that I can copy the part while it is downloading to have a "back up" kind of thing?
    Any information will be most appreciated.

    it is unlikely that the download can be carried on once it has been cut. i would recorment that you get yourself getright. this program allows you to restart broken downloads. if your pc stops and your downloading a big file then check your download limits as it may be too big

    Thanks. I have getright, but I can't get it it to catch this link. I've tried to put in the URL as well, but it just says that it's a webpage.
    Thanks for your time.
