All of a sudden iGetter is not working any longer. It keeps going to Waiting... After long waits it switches to Connecting for a few seconds. Especially when the donwload is about 99% done.

I repaired permissions, trashed the iGetter folder in Preferences... all to no avail.

What to do?

Hello Beatrice,
Thank you for your report.

We have a similar problem with some files, but the problem is hidden in the Proxies between your machine and the server. Somewhere on the way a proxy cashes the download and then gives you the file for faster downloading. The problem disappears if you have an alternative link for this file or alternative connection to the Internet. Download will be resumed just fine.

At find a mirror server and copy the location. Push Cmd+I (Item Settings...) on your download and enter the new URL.

For example you can use this mirror:
