    Download Manager Recommendations

    Greetings everyone!

    I'd like to hear which download manager you use, what you like about it and maybe what you don't like about it. I'm looking for a lightweight, free download manager for Windows. I'd like to download a 7GB file but the connection I'm on isn't stable enough to run it straight through so I need a manager that will allow downloads to resume.

    I look forward to your input.
    Regards,
    Matt

    If you use firefox there are several download manager addons, DownThemAll is a popular one, don't much use windows or download managers so I can't give any recommendations other than that

    I use Download Accelerator Plus (DAP), it increases downloading speed & you can pause & resume downloads whenever you wish, I would like to recommend you to get DAP premium for good speed.

    I'm using DownThemALL (A Firefox add-on). Works pretty well even with big downloads.

    I use Download Accelerator Plus (DAP) and I love it. It accelerates your download speeds to the max and lets you pause/resume downloads, schedule downloads, etc. And if you're using the premium version, it gets much better.

    Thanks for your input everyone, I have been using DownThemALL. DAP also looks pretty good.

    I've tried several download managers:
    - JDownloader
    - FDM / Freedownloadmanager ( http://freedownloadmanager.org)
    - Internet Download Manager
    - Flashgot
    - DownThem All

    For normal use, I will use the FDM. But when it comes to Premium filesharing websites, I will use JDownloader. Both of them are free.

    I want to try to use the IDM, but there is only one option for buying the license for it. It's local / Indonesian website. So I decided not give it anther try

    Definitely JDownloader, for a few reasons:

    -Ease of use
    -It's open source
    -Platform independent (Windows, Mac, Linux)
    -Supports YouTube and Vimeo
    -Supports about 110 one-click hosters
    -It has automatic RAR archive extractor
    -You can add aditional modules (like automatic shutdown etc.)
    -Router restart option
    -Supports use of premium accounts

    Etc.

    For free download manager would prefer you to use Orbit its free version if paid version then for sure, it would be Internet Download Manager.

    This is the kind of thing that bit torrent should be used for. It's a genius way to manage downloads & achieve maximum speeds (if properly seeded among peers). It's unfortunate that it's only associated with pirated files. I would like to see it used more often in the mainstream.
