Reviving Dead Downloads!

This is what you need to do if your download dies all of a sudden. It may still show that you're downloading but you're not. The -???- shows that your download is DEAD. :/

So, my download is dead. Why? because the link has expired. Pause the download.

Now, go back to the site where you've downloaded the previous file.

I chose File Front earlier, so I'm back to that very link I clicked on earlier which brought me there.

Click Download. Yes, you are downloading a NEW file; but not exactly new. :)

There, you see I'm adding a New download. This new download is actually the same file as the one you see behind.

Copy the URL. Now, exit/cancel. You are NOT going to download a new file. You're here to copy the URL.

Click Properties on your previous download which was Paused.

Paste the URL that you've copied earlier onto your current paused download.


You can always use this way to any downloads at all.
