Data is coded (type, size, format, etc.) with a notation at the beginning of the data, and at the end.
Your browser or file management software "looks" for beginning and end coding, in order to determine that there is something "actually there."
If there is no "end point" then ordinary search via My computer doesn't "see" a file.
It is "possible" that Data Recovery software could identify and recover "segments" of an incomplete download, and "maybe" repair the segment by giving it a beginning and end coding. <-- I do not have any solid basis for suggesting this possible claim, nor do I imagine that you would actually end up with anything useful.
