 Which download manager do you use or prefer? Internet Download Manager (IDM) has proven to be the best of me, I guess it's the most used globally, this download manager features alot of advantages as compared to other download managers. (IDM) possesses fast downloading speed, simple interface, versatile compatibility with browsers, instant download box, adaptable settings or resourceful options. What else do you need from a download manager? The world had changed drastically and technology has paved a way to do beyond thereby making us lazy to do work (lol). Since then every person loves portability, a life without stress.

There's a problem IDM users face which can be more painful than loosing your girlfriend, bet me. While downloading a file, probably a very large file, then you browser stops accessing the net due to the fact that your internet data has been exhusted or you browser closes due to the fact that your PC experienced a fatal error, what else could happen? Yes! Your PC might have shut down due to battery issues. After you might have fixed the issue then try to resume the downloading, it gives you an error, probably your download is upto %80. Ofcourse starting all over is such a terrific thing to do, what do you do now?

It's quite sad huh! Just keep calm, I have two methods to resum download from IDM which I'll be showing you here. It's depending on the error you get though, if the IDM do not resume your downloading despite the file had resuming capability, you get an error message like below screenshot.

The error in the above screenshot is due to one of the following reasons:
  • Server stopped responding.
  • Download URL got refreshed from the server, thereby making the old URL not to identify the file.
  • Files removed from the original directory of your Hard disk.
  • Also, internet problems also causes this type of errors.

URL or internet related problems are easy to be solved, but if the file is being denied by the server, I'm sorry there's nothing we can do about that that to wait till it becomes available from the sever.

Now I'll go back on point to the main reason why we are here, like I said earlier, here I'll show you two methods to resume download of broken files in IDM. The second tutorial here is just for formality sake as the first method would work very well. Lets Proceed....

First Method – How to Resume Download of Broken Files in IDM:

Second Method – How to Resume Download of Broken Files in IDM:

This second method also works, let's see how it's been done.
