RESUMING DOWNLOAD LINK USING INTERNET DOWNLOAD MANAGER PT2:
The part one of this tutorial “HOW TO RESUME DOWNLOAD LINK WITH IDM”was a bit difficult, because you’ll have to do some registry edit and things like that makes some people shake. So with the new internet download manager, you can resume those links that are unresumable without editing codes or messing with your registry.
Reason why you should know how to resume download links that can’t be resumed: imaging you’re downloading a file worth of 900mb and while downloading, your modem got disconnected. Now what will you do since you’ve downloaded 690mb out of the 900mb, are you going to restart the download from scratch? Starting the download from scratch is not the right answer, right? But the best option here is to learn the resumable techniques.
With this tutorial, you will learn this simple trick without a sweat. So if you’re ready, let’s proceed…
SIMPLE STEP OF RESUMING AN UNRESUMABLE LINK WITH IDM
This trick works with the new idm so you can get one @ their official site.
Let’s say you have the latest idm and you want to download from those sites that don’t allow resumable downloads, what will you do?
If your modem gets disconnected or your system accidentally shut down and you try to resume the download that can’t be resumed, you’ll likely get a message like “When trying to resume the download, Internet Download Manager got a response from the server that it doesn’t support resuming the download. It’s possible that it’s a temporary error of the server, and you will be able to resume the file at a later time, but at this time IDM can download this file from the beginning.
Do you want to download this file from the beginning?”
Hey buddy, don’t click the “yes” button because if you do you’re going to restart that download from scratch which is not advisable. What you’ll do is click the “No” button.
Now go to the download link in your are trying to download with your IDM, right click on it and select “Refresh download address” see screen shot below
After clicking “Refresh download address” you will see a message like “IDM will open a web page in your browser where it captured this download. Please start the download of the same file from your browser again and IDM will try to capture a new address or new session data to resume this download” see screen shot below
When you get the message just click the “Ok” button
After clicking the “Ok” button, your browser will pop up loading the download link it wants to download. In the process, you will see the internet download manager grabber like the screen shot below
Now click the download links or wait for the new download to pop up and the download will resume from the exact place it stopped.
