#3974 closed Bug report (rejected)

Downloaded file continued to download after file size was reached

Description

I dragged a group of files, folders and an ISO from a remote site to a local folder and one of the zip files continued to download way past its origanl size. The origanal file was a 74 MB in size but it continued to download past that and I eventually stopped it at 122 MB. The progress bar reported as 100 % complete. It appears that the file download just restarts every time it reaches the end of the original file.

I restarted the same file and it did it again. This time i let it restart a second time (149 MB) before I stopped it.

Are you using a Microsoft server by any chance? Those are broken, they actively advertise resume support, yet still send you the full file if you try to resume, leading to the described behavior.

Thanks for the fast resporse. Is there any work around for this behavior of repeating the download to the same file? Anything on the server side?
