Resume download from uploaded.net failed

Postby Rava » Fri Apr 07, 2017 10:28 am

My system: x86-64 Linux, Palemoon 27.2.0

I downloaded and activated FlashGot, cause I need to download 3 files from uploaded.net, and that site is known for being awfully slow when you use it as free unregistered user.
Now, the 1st file I had to pause (I used Palemoon's own downloader) due to a meeting I had to go to, so I only managed to download approx 60 - 70%.

Now I went to the same link on uploaded.net and when the "save file as" dialog came, I told it "use FlashGot to download" (or similar phrased), and prior to that I selected wget as my download helper.
Then a terminal window opened, in which wget told me "nothing to do, file already completely downloaded" (or similar), but sure that is not true.
The target size is 898 MB, my local file is 597 MB, so far from "completely downloaded".
Sadly, even when the download failed completely, for uploaded.net I still have downloaded a file and now have to wait at least 60 minutes to try to download one single file.

What went wrong? Where happened the error that made wget presume the not completely downloaded file was already downloaded?

Does uploaded.net need extra tweaking?

Or can I not use wget here, and have to e.g. use cURL instead?

(I'll just say that not all sites [servers] support, Resume.)

If "resume" is not the issue, then I'd guess its something along the lines of, Is uploaded.to broken?


Some sample (small preferably) uploaded.net URLs?

I have no clue, usually I avoid uploaded.to, but these files are needed to setup firmware and system for my Samsung Android smartphone.. and so I have to get them...

Sorry, these are 3 files, and I presume all are of similar size, the first one is almost 900 MB... :(

OK, so what is the URL in any case?
