    Nowdays IDM is the most widely used download manager because of its capability to download files at a faster rate than compared to that of any browser or any other download manager. Not only download at a faster rate idm can also resume links at a later time which is the most important feature of the idm . But sometimes an error occurs when we try to resume the download .We get frustrated when the file has already been downloaded more than 50%. and the message appears “Do you want to download the file from the beginning”.

    It happened due to the several facts & problems: –

    • When server stopped responding
    • Your Internet connection has problems
    • You manually pause it
    • stopped it to download it later some times.while you know it has the capability of resuming.
    • IDM failed, when it send the request to download it where it has stopped.

    Response of the IDM was “Do you want to download it from the beginning “. Definately you don’t want to download it from the beginning while you have downloaded 1 GB or more. There are the tips and tricks to download the file from where IDM has stopped or you had paused it.Some of the ways are given below to resume the downloads.

    TRICK FIVE


    This trick is for those people who get the resume capability as NO

    2. For that firstly stop that download and go to IDM.

    3. Then open the options tab in the IDM panel .

    4. Click on CONNECTION .Then select max number of connections. It should be set to 8 or 16.Change its value to 1.Press OK.

    5. Then restart the download again and now you must get its resume capability as YES. One more fact that your speed will not become very less as compared to original download speed.
