Resume Rapidshare, Megaupload, Mediafire, Hotfile free downloads

Filed under: Tech — alanabraham @ 2:20 am

The major file hosting sites like Rapidshare, Megaupload, mediafire etc. dont allow the resuming of paused downloads.
This following trick will be working on any file that you stopped downloading (especially large size) in midway.



Mozilla Firefox

The Background Info

1. Firefox (im talking abt 3.5+) usually downloads a file when u click save button in two files

* the original file with size 0
* the .part file named as “FILENAME.EXTENSION.part” , where FILENAME.EXTENSION is the real file

2. When you download something from sites like Rapidshare, Megaupload etc or any other sites, the .part file keeps increasing its size. After the whole download completes, the original file is stored with the data in .part file and .part file is removed.


1. Restart download after saving the previous broken-downloaded .part file to another location
2. Pause download after few seconds (dont take more than 10 seconds for the following processes).
3. Delete the new part file and replace it with old .part file with the same name of new file
4. Resume download



This tip will help you to resume a download (especially large size) in the following cases:

* Accidentally removed transfer from the transfers tab.
* Closed Opera with an intention to resume download next day but transfer is missing when Opera is started.
* Resuming download with an another high speed mirror.

The following will work when web server allows resuming of broken downloads.

1. Start download again and save with another name.
2. Stop transfer after few seconds.
3. Delete new download file.
4. Rename old download file with new name.
5. Resume transfer.
