    Hi

    I have a problem when I download a large file with Safari download and if there any thing that interrupt the download file I must begin again and again the download file, how I can change the download by default of Safari, and what software to use to avoid this situation

    Thanks

    Whether or not a download is resumable is determined by the server, not the browser. If you can resume the download of your specific files in a different browser, then you have an issue. Otherwise, don't stop your download or redownload the files if you stop the download.

    In case you didn't read Ed's query properly, he wasn't saying that he stopped the download, but that something happened to interrupt the download and I guess we have all had that happen to us, I know I have.
    Anyway, Ed, I use a program called iGetter which allows for several resumes of a downoad, give it a try if you like. I think, in the time I have been using it, I have had one or two broken downloads that couldn't be resumed. Cheers.

    No worries, Ed, just too glad to help. When you first start iGetter, open the preferences and under the 'Integration' tab, ensure you check the 'Integrate with Internet Browsers' checkbox, this has the effect of iGetter taking control of your download from Safari. This only affects downloads initiated by you from Safari, it does not affect downloads from the Finder or other programs. To do these others, you would need an Applescript or Automator routine or some other method. I have not set up anything of this sort so I cannot help you there but have fun with iGetter, I have used it for some years now, cheers.

    Downloads resume

    Hi! In such cases you should use download managers. They will resume the broken downloads.

    You can try Folx download manager, its free (http://mac.eltima.com/download-manager.html) or Speed Download.
