Is there a way I can download a zip file while having the option to resume download?

New member | Level 2

I am using IDM to direct download the ZIP file which contains about 100 short video clips that I need to edit for my client.

But when the downlaod starts, it tells me that the server doesnt have resumable capability.

Is there anyway I can download all videos at once while having the resumeable capability

Best Regards.

Hey @justvibinhere, I hope you're well today!

 

When downloading through the Dropbox website, there isn't currently a way to download while having the option to pause/resume.

 

If you prefer to have the option to pause and resume I could suggest using the desktop app to instead sync the files locally to your computer.

 

With this method, you would need to have enough space in your Dropbox account to hold the data you want to download as it would need to be added to your account first.

 

I hope this info helps, let me know if you have any questions!
