    Hello, Could someone please help me with a Folx download problem. I am using a G4 PPC Emac (1.42 GHz) running OS 10.4.11 and Folx 2.0.1028. I have been downloading a large zip file (36 Gigabytes) from a website. It is not a torrent, but if I try to use Safari or Firefox, the download is interrupted at some stage, and I cannot use these browsers to download files larger than about 15 GB, i.e. from any website, not just only in this instance.
    In this case, Folx managed to download about 80 percent of the 36 GB file without any problem. It then stopped and is now giving the message: "Critical error (invalid HTTP response (state:65 errorcode:404)". I can't understand why and have tried restarting the program, restarting the computer, restarting the modem, etc. but to no avail. I went back to the website to check if the original URL which I pasted into Folx was now invalid or had changed - but it is the same URL and it is still active (it did start to download normally with Safari). Could someone please advise how to download the remaining 20 percent of the file without having to re-download all over again, as I cannot do this as I would then be exceeding my ISP download limit. - Or, at least could someone advise as to what could be happening here and what I could try instead, next month when my usage is reset. By the way I don't think the website has an FTP download facility ... Thanks for any advice, much appreciated ...

    and how could you have a legit file that big? It sounds more like something pirated.

    Upgrade your folx to folx go 4.2 via app store. Open files previously downloaded wear Folx 2.0.1028 by right click, select open with Folx Go 4.2 that have downloaded earlier via the app store.

    You realize this thread is over three and a half years old - right?
