I don't completely agree but this is not the place to discuss all that We don't want to invite the Moderators to this thread, do we ?

It's in a folder I created in the 'home' folder. It's called 'downloads' - there are quite a few folders and files contained in.

We have crossed lines the gparted 27meg is in Downloads is called "gparted-live-0.6.4-2.iso" and is a "raw CD image

The last command you sent reveals a lot gparted in the trash ?????. What a mess !!

Anisha - thanks I'm trying not to panic - I am no longer getting an email when you post to this thread - what button have I accidentally hit?

I am getting "no such file or directory" The folder 'downloads' is on drive D (Windows) Data (Linux) and is inside the 'home folder' What is the syntax if I give it some navigation to find 'downloads?

Check your email

I don't know what do you mean be drive D (Windows) Data (Linux) ? I have not seen C or D drives on Linux.

Have you done all this on Linux ? I am scared now !

LINUX COMMANDS ARE CASE SENSITIVE

On Linux when I open the terminal, following is how I navigate:
Code:
anisha@linux-uitj:~> ls
tarBalls
anisha@linux-uitj:~> cd tarBalls/
anisha@linux-uitj:~/tarBalls> ls | grep gparted
gparted-live-0.6.3-3.iso
For navigation commands you have:
Code:
cd directoryname
For getting to previous directory
Code:
cd ..
For getting to home directory
Code:
cd
For seeing the directory contents:
Code:
ls
For locating a file or directory:
Code:
locate filename

When you press the Quote button on the post while replying, a new window opens up.
Scroll down that window and you'll see a title "Thread Subscription". Below it : Notification type. Select Instant Email notification if its not already selected. I have attached the screen shot below:

Its time to change your thread title now to something like :
Unable to download "GParted" through "wget -c"

Please edit your first post to keep the relevant question.

This may help other people to notice your thread and they may jump in to help you too !

Yes I have done all this in Linux; Linux calls the drive DATA whereas Vista calls it drive D. But its the same physical drive. I don't explain myself very well do I Sorry.

I think I understand what you want in the name change, and it shall be done.

I read your last paragraph as if you intend to leave his thread - I hope that that is not what you mean. Please clarify this for me ??

I tried looking for a large download to test with but I had no luck - can you recommend one - I suspect that this whole problem may be due to my own provider

I meant here that I am not technically too sound, other senior members on forum may solve your problems more quickly and efficiently than me.

For testing you may try downloading Mint 700 MB ! Large enough..
Code:
wget -c http://mirror.optus.net/linuxmint/isos/stable/9/linuxmint-9-fluxbox-cd-i386.iso

Alright Open terminal and execute:
Code:
ls
Copy the all exact output and paste here and lets see where is your Downloads folder.

Does "Downloads" directory has a capital "D" ? Linux is case sensitive !
Code:
cd Downloads

Yes it does have a capital D and that made it respond correctly. I now get

des@des:~$ cd Downloads
des@des:~/Downloads$

Ah progress

Then ls produces

des@des:~$ cd Downloads
des@des:~/Downloads$ ls

Time here :- 23:00 Saturday 9th Oct

From where did you run that wget -c command ?

From here ?
Code:
des@des:~$
or from here ?
Code:
des@des:~/Downloads$
The gparted iso was in Downloads directory. So if you RAN the wget -c command from the Downloads directory, then try running it again from the same place.

If the software gparted was downloaded completely previously, the download will NOT start again through the wget -c command. wget will tell you that the download has been finished and there is nothing more to do.

What did wget -c say when you ran it again ? "awaiting a response" ? nothing else ? I am surprised, it doesn't happen here ! I can download any software very nicely through wget -c command ! Check out your provider.
