Hey there

I need to suck down about 25GB worth of data from my office in Sweden.  As it's so large it may get cut off from time to time so I'm wondering if there is a Windows downloader app that has a resume feature?  I know how to do this in Unix pretty easily but as I'll need to have my Mac with me over the weekend I was hoping to just set it up on one of my Windows server boxes to go unattended until I'm back on Monday.

Any ideas?

Thanks!
G.

There are plenty of free programs that do this. I use Flashget personally, that or orbit downloader.. My favourite was getright but i believe they charge for it now.

I usually just use the DownloadThemAll addon for Firefox.

I use Free Download Manager, seems to work great with resumes and multiple streams.

Cheers
