Hi, Is there a download manager that can start downloading a file (let's say the file is 2.5 gigabytes) -- then after downloading a gigabyte of the file, there is an interruption in the connection (a lost connection) -- & lets say also that the computer is then turned off -- & then a few days later the computer is turned on & is connected to the internet -- & then the download manager is turned on & can find all that it downloaded (that whole gigabyte of the file it had downloaded a few days before), & can continue downloading the file from where it left off (with that gigabyte under its belt) until it downloads all of the file's 2.5 gigabytes? A download manager that can do that, plus be able to segment the download into numerous splits, to speed up the download - that's the download manager I want to find. Do you know of one? Thank you, nonkly

You are basically describing a torrent. I don't know of any download managers that can do both but there are some that can resume an interrupted download.

I believe the one built into Firefox and Seamonkey can.
Will Firefox resume download after interruption?

Another is Gozilla Download Manager.

Google gives lots of choices: download manager resume
