There is this file that I really want to download. The kahel os live cd

I tried downloading it with 45kbps download rate and it would take 3 hours. And the connection is intermittent. So my download was cut.

Is it possible to treat the file as your own and then put it to your own dropbox. And from there it would continue downloading.

dropbox also refers to an application – soul Jun 14 '10 at 7:44
I'd use wget for this, it tends to be a lot more robust than any browser's downloader, and it can continue a file with the -c flag. – Phoshi Jun 14 '10 at 7:49

no, thats not possible.

why dont you just use a download manager, like IDM for example, and when your connection cuts out, just resume from where you left off ?

If you're using Firefox, you can try the addon DownThemAll. It's a great download manager.

No, you can't unless the owner of the file decides to share the directory with you. Of course you can try to use a download manager to resume the download.
