I`ve been downloading a 600 MB file for over 30 hours, then it went back from 51% to 0% the next time I
resumed it. The resume icon in the start menu was useless (still 0%). I know exactly
where the half downloaded file (about 300 MB) is on my hard drive. When I double clicked the incomplete file, it told me to run
the file from the start menu, and wouldn`t let me resume. I don`t have the time to download the whole thing again, and their shoulde be a way to use the 300 MB
that I already downloaded to finish it. Does any one know how do can I finish an incomplete download that isn`t in the start menu with Download Express, or another program to resume it?

Dear Gary,

Thank you for writing us.
Do you use any Registry or disk "scavenging" utility?
It seems that the Download Express` service information was removed from the registry and/or Download Express` INDEX disk folder.
These records contain the information about downloaded parts of the file. It isn`t possible to resume the download without this information and Download Express starts the download from the beginning.

Sincerely,
Alexander.
