I`ve been downloading a large file and having problems with my ISP, in an attempt to make it go faster I started a couple more threads. It helped a bit, but slowed down again later so I stopped them. Then I stopped it all together and restarted it to find that suddenly I had downloaded an extra 30MB`s. Found that I could stop it and start it(even thou it didn`t have time to connect) till finally it stopped increasing (at 80% adding 250MB`s)when the threads that where started before but not used anymore had disappeared in the download map(Only the current threads where left in an incomplete state. This is the second time I have had problems with this file and as I have download 200MB, is there a way to get Mass Downloader to fix the file which must be full of NULL characters without restarting it.
