Server error...

by 11314997 - 2/27/09 1:07 PM

Using dial-up, some large files must be downloaded in sessions. As my download manager will resume, most files will pick up where they left off from the last session.

Problem:

Downloading a 56MB file from Microsoft, on the second session - (since the file was large and had to be addressed from the first session), the server sent this message;

"File size on server has changed. Download from the beginning"

As this situation is time consuming on dial-up, has anyone had this done to them and is there a solution? I am surprised that a Microsoft server would (change the file size - why???). My understanding of files on servers are for the most part, 'static'.

I probably show a lack of knowledge here, so any input or advice appreciated. Thanks all...

Best regards,

Mike Warwick.
