which command did you use to start the download?

It will pick up from where it left off only if you use
Without the "-c" parameter it will go back to the beginning. As for where it's stored, that will be in the working directory. So you not only need "-c" but you need to have the same directory set, or else it won't find the first half and will just start over.
