downloading large files- Red Hat 9

I have a dual boot system. RH9 is installed on a tiny Hard Drive. I want to download an .iso file in Red Hat to a mounted Windows Hard Drive.

When I do so, I get an error about 300mb into the download. I think this is because Red Hat is creating a temp copy of the partially downloaded file.

Can I either stop Red Hat doing this or move the Temp directory which RH uses to a Windows HD??

any help would be much appreciated.

Welcome to LQ.

It will depend what software you are using - some programs - especially web browsers will save the file in their cache as it is being downloaded. Try using wget:
cd /path/to/save/location
wget -c
