well you don't mention what you were using to download with. I don't know if it will work or not but wget -c will resume downloads.

Thank you... I read the wget man page and the download has resumed. Much appreciated. I didn't mention my downloader as I am not really sure which Epiphany uses. Have been trying out different browsers and am fairly happy with Epiphany. What would you recommend in the area of downloaders ( and browsers...)? Thanks again, Allen

I always do my big downloads with wget... But as said above you can usually finish of a failed download with wget -c
