Resuming Download in Linux

wget -c Resume Unfinished Downloads

This small command can save your time and money while downloading big files so I found it useful to share with you .I was downloading a file with wget command and it was 98% downloaded and my computer turned off unexpectedly. It was a very huge file and downloading it from the beginning was a painful job. So I came  across a wget command that can be used for resuming unfinished downloads.

I found this command after reading wget manual, you can add wget -c or wget --continue to resume unfinished download.

wget -c url
