> But twice now, after an interruption, I got "Network error: The local file download has different size from the remote file. To fix this you must restart the download from the beginning" though I know the remote files haven't been modified. When the counter of a 750 Mo file shows 94% this is rather annoying.
> Hello Gemp,
The very possible reason for this error is that you don't have enough space on your HD. Eventual crashing of your system or a power fail may cause losing of downloaded data or corrupting of your downloads in progress, too.

this answer is GARBAGE
make sure your program works BEFORE releasing it
i waited several days to get a large file
i have MORE SPACE than you can afford
and it's now broken
because your GARBAGE thinks it's wrong size

Hello "VERY annoyed user",
There are several reasons for the returned "different local and remote file sizes" error:

1. The URL includes a session timeout. In this case you need to fill a login form again or wait some timeout to get a fresh URL which will resume the file. This is a common practice at most free file sharing services which clearly say that if you want to use a download manager you need to upgrade to their paid services.

2. Some Proxy server (which appears to be on the way to the file server) returns a different than the original file size. In this case if you choose a different ISP the download will be resumed properly.

3. The server uses a buggy Apache distribution such as SuSE
Apache 2.0.48 distribution which returns a wrong "Content-Range" entity. To fix this server owner must use the original Apache distribution.

4. The file is really updated on the server.

To be sure what the reason is just look at the "Content-Length" and "Content-Range" entities of the first and the broken segments.

If the error states that the file date is different try to uncheck the "Prevent resuming if file date is modified" option at iGetter preferences, Advanced panel.

iGetter crashing under Leopard with above error

Yeah, this has just started happening for me, too - iGetter crashes with "the local file download has different size from the remote file" - and it has only happened since I upgraded to Leopard.

I tried unchecking the "prevent resuming if file date changes" checkbox to no avail - still mucho crashy crashy. Any ideas? You guys want crash logs?
