Hey there,

I am in the trouble of being in a remote place with very slow internet!
Downloads take too long to be finished before the link gets invalid.

Is there a way that I can renew the Download URL for a file?
Meaning that once it is broken I basically start a new download but instead of downloading a new file it continues with what I already have?

Also can I add multiple mirrors that are not found with search mirror? Meaning adding them manually?

Thanks a lot,

To avoid problems with URLs that expire:

Set "Minimal segment size" value at iGetter preferences, Acceleration panel, to 50 000 KB. This way iGetter will not try to make new connections at least 50 MB from end of the file. Option will take effect with the newly added downloads only.

If a link expires and a broken download appears, you can replace the existing URL in iGetter with a fresh link from the same site. To do so, you need to pause that download, open Item Settings dialog (double click on a download) and replace existing URL with a new one.

You can manually add mirrors through the download's "Item Settings" dialog > "Mirrors" tab panel.
