How to Resume Incomplete Download After Horrible Outage

Leave a Comment
Admit it, you must have had experienced it: 90% downloaded and the power went OFF! and you don't know either the server had resume capability or not. If you're not sure, here is the trick to save your unfinish file: *) The browser is Firefox by the way

  1. Turn on your computer 
  2. DON'T EVER RUN FIREFOX or YOU WILL LOSE YOUR FILE 
  3. Go to Download folder (or the last folder where you saved the file) 
  4. You will find two files, for example : Video.mp4 and Video.mp4.part 
  5. Copy the file Video.mp4.part to another place whatever you like (e.g. Desktop) 
  6. Now, open Firefox and open Downloads dialog box. 
  7. Our previous unfinished download process will be resumed FROM ZERO (duh!) 
  8. Pause the download. 
  9. Go to Download folder and now you will find only one new file Video.mp4, delete it and replace it with the the previous backed up file Video.mp4.part that we stored at Desktop. Rename it as Video.mp4 (for paranoid reason copy the file from Desktop, do not delete it or move it, so you have another backup in Desktop) 
  10. Go to the Firefox Download dialog, and resume the Download. 
  11. Walla! Now, you will see, the Download will be resumed from last time! 

Thanks for Alwan Rosyidi for the trick.
