    I am using the resume download feature on a 3GB tar.gz file. It seemed to be working correctly, but now I see that Fetch has transferred more bytes than the file size, so the time left is 0:00, but I'm still downloading 140K/s of data (and the bytes transferred continues to rise). Is this behavior correct?

    No, that isn't correct. Can you post the contents of the Fetch Transcript window?

    Thanks,

    Unfortunately it had already cleared from the transcript window. I later used the feature to resume download on a 1.5GB file from the same server and it worked correctly. If the problem happens again I will post.

    That's a tricky one! It looks like the server does not support restarts more than 2GB into the file. Here's the relevant part of the transcript:

    REST 2639226880
    350 Restarting at 2147483647. Send STORE or RETRIEVE to initiate transfer.

    Fetch says to restart the transfer at byte 2639226880 and the server replies that it is starting at byte 2147483647 (exactly 2GB minus 1 byte).

    I would contact the server administrator to see if there's an upgrade that supports restarting transfers beyond the 2GB mark.

    Thanks,
