    I use Fresh Downloads to download from the Internet. However, I only have a modem connection, as Broadband isn't available in my area. When downloading from some sites Resume is not supported, and often I find that I download quite a large part of the file, only to lose it if my connection fails. Two questions. What happens to the part download? and Is there anyway to make a Resume available?

    Resume is not made available on certain servers and there's nothing the client can do about it.
    If you're downloading a big file, you should try and find a mirror that does support resume.
