Hi,

I wish to provide a facility in my web application wherein a user can resume an incomplete downloaded file based on the fact that the initial download was incomplete from a log file.
How could i log an incomplete download or lets say if the user has clicked on cancel button when prompted to open/save file.

Any suggestions are welcomed.

You are aware that this will require software in the client as well, aren't you? This wouldn't work with downloads made by, say, a web browser. Both sides need to work together in a scheme like this.

Hi Ulf,
