  1. Dude,
    I have been struggling for 3 weeks day&night trying to download my FUCKING FACEBOOK MESSENGER ARCHIVE!

    I have tried every GOD DAM download manager I can find, they ALL SUCK BALLS!

    The only one that would even properly intercept the link and begin downloading the 4GB ZIP file was FDM, but of course it always crashed with the 404 erreor!

    When I found your website and you post above I was excited, I have not slept in 2 days still trying to figuer this shit out, I need that data it has financial figures in it I need to do my budget and get bills paid!

    Your post above was great to read, BUT IT DOES NOT WORK ANYTHING CLOSE TO YOUR EXPLANATION!

    1. When I click the download link again, it does not start the download new in the browser, it starts it as a new item in the Free Download Manager, and it has the same exact link address as the item below it which failed. Still, even at this time, I can pause and restart the new second download that started over again, but trying to restart the old one that I need wil not restart, even after copying the same / new link URL into it

    2. I dont know what planet you got your FDM from, but there is not any RESUME button or option in any toolbar, menu or button on any window in that program.

    After right clicking on the fucked off download instance and choosing CHANGE URL, a window opens with a text box whose text is selected and is the original link URL that failed! After pasting the new but idenical URL link text over the old one, there is a CANCEL and OK button.

    The whole entire proram has no resume button anywhere, so you must be running the versuion from outer space, that I didn have access to.

    I am running Version (41fbb26)

  2. Hi, I’ve a problem with a stopped download from Drive Google (Http 403 error) that FDM can’t get to resume (I did the ‘change URL link’ too) and unfortunately you’re confirming there’s no way to resume the original uncompleted downloaded file.
    Actually FDM starts and creates a new file with a (1) after the file name (before the extension).
