I lost a download with aria2


somebody have recommanded me to use aria2 to manage my downloads, I like it, but i'm not yet familiar with it, i have few questions :

1- how can i continue a download i have stoped it ?
2- should i be in the same directory always ?
3- if i want to download the same file from different URLs, can i write them in a file and use the -i option to download it ?

I lost a download today, and I'm not ready to lost a new one x) !!

man aria2c

You did do a "man aria2c " first right?^^
You are not specifying whether you are downloading a file via http/ftp, or a torrent. I'll guess it's a file via http/ftp.

1- aria2c -c URL
3- apparently yes, says it in the manual... did you try it?

rtfm and if you get some error post again.
