Solutions to overcome file download with IDM which stops at 99% (SIMPLE!)


Of course you are so upset when the download is not completed or fails. This often happens when the download using Internet Download Manager (IDM) to be completed or reached (99%) and then download speeds to zero, then die and can not be resumed so the download is incomplete (not completed). Usually this problem occurs if the downloaded file size is too large. Such as games, movies, or other files. For that, I want to share the solution how to solve problems downloading files with IDM which stops at 99%.

Work of IDM application is basically a file to be downloaded split into small parts. Like the 200 MB file will be split into 16 parts, and will be combined into a single file again at the end of the process. Well, when the merge file is often a problem in IDM. That is, the application of IDM too fast to merge files, while the downloaded file is incomplete.

Before starting, the characteristics of the files that failed to be downloaded like this:
  • When the process to 99%, the time left is stopped
  • The download speed (transfer rate) on IDM increasingly slow and finally ended up at 0 kB / s
  • On the status, only it says "connecting and send get".
  • If paused, can not continue (can not resume). If the resume, IDM will request a new URL address to complete the process and you will be asked to wait. (Do not wait, because it is not necessary).
  • If your resume and will appear something like this: "Can not download the file Because of timeout"




If the above characteristics appear, then the you need to do is:
  1. Pause IDM.
  2. In the IDM toolbar, find and then choose Options.
  3. After that find and choose the option 'save to' and look for the words "Temporary directory". Copy the address. example, C: \ Users \ Jason \ AppData \ Roaming \ IDM \ DwnlData.
  4. Then clicking start on the start menu choose Seacrh, paste the address earlier in the Search.
  5. A new window will appear and open the folder, there, you'll see a lot of files, that files that have not completed the download by IDM.
  6. Find the folder of your file download failed. For example, you download a file name ef9c67893a5a61f7c7da09eb4e2efb_774, search the folder, and open the folder.
  7. Once opened, you will see 3 files. (here I find the files ef9c67893a5a61f7c7da09eb4e2efb, ef9c67893a5a61f7c7da09eb4e2efb52 file, and log_774).
  8. Hold this (just minimize the window), and then open the browser (I recommend using Mozilla firefox) then, open the website address where you downloaded the file that failed earlier. (Download again). The important thing here is, DO NOT USE IDM FOR DOWNLOADING. (Turn off the IDM, use the default download from Mozilla).
  9. Mozilla will give you the option where you will save the file. The file is saved in the folder you want. (for example on the desktop).
  10. The download process will be running. Well, after the download is running, PAUSE work of downloading.
  11. Open the folder where you saved the file before (here I am on the desktop, so it is open on the desktop). There you will find 2 files. For example (ef9c67893a5a61f7c7da09eb4e2efb.avi.part and ef9c67893a5a61f7c7da09eb4e2efb.avi)
  12. Open the window that you minimized earlier (window Temporary files folder) copy and paste a file to the desktop. Whatever you select a file (you experiment) no log files (Log files are not included)
  13. Well on the desktop right now, there are 3 files, 2 files from the downloaded Mozilla and 1 file from the copy of your files before.
  14. Next, rename the files you copy to extension. Part. (for example, rename files ef9c67893a5a61f7c7da09eb4e2efb52, to be ef9c67893a5a61f7c7da09eb4e2efb.avi.part) and delete the original Part file from Mozilla earlier. (Step 9)
  15. Open Mozilla, and then resume the download process before. And!!! Your file download failed at 99% is absolutely perfect!






If the above steps do not work, then:
  • Try to copy the other files from the downloaded IDM and do the same thing in step 12 above.
  • If in the browser (Mozilla, Opera, Chrome, or Safari), when do resume the download process is not running and you've tried it several times, it means that the file downloaded from IDM damaged. The internet connection is not good.

point no.9 & 10 are little bit confusing....can u plz clear it .

Balas

No. 9 & 10 means that the downloaded file manually using a browser, which you must first disable your IDM way, on IDM menu> downloads> options> Uncheck then> use advaced browser integration

Balas

Can you explain more on step 16. Should I delete the original file first or rename first? If I rename first there are two files with the same name.

I tried this solution but didn't work. When I resumed mozilla said can't read source file.

Balas

possibility of the host file the file does not support resume, this trick only applies to downloading the file supports the resume

Balas

I have tried step 1 to 17. I am having resume facility. But still could not able to complete the download neither thru' IDM not thru' Mozilla it hangs at 99.96% for many files.What is the new technique can be adopted?

@hareesh: please read this post:http://bangtain.blogspot.com/2011/11/resume-download-idm-that-failed.html

Balas

Mr. Mustain, I rooted out the problem of resume in IDM. Solution is not to use any special characters in passward creating in premium links. So that IDM starts resume smoothly. My problem is it stops download at 99.99%. Even after many try (also at different different times)it never completes. I have tried thru' your guidlines and start download manualy thru' Mozilla and stoped then copy and paste last part from (exclusive log file)"C:\Documents and Settings\home\Application Data\IDM" and changed the IDM part with mozila .part and deleted the original mozila .part . Mozila says "could not be saved, because the source file could not be read.Try again later, or contact the server administrator" and turn out the resume manual download from mozila.This problem happens all the time only for Windows xp operating system files downloading. Not for the other programmes.
I am having morthan 20 gb of such operating system file downloads pending at 99.99% How to solve Please Please Please help me.

Can someone explain it in proper ENGLISH.

Balas

whether you've done the trick from me? and do it quickly, do not delay the next time..
if the problem still persists, try moving the temporary directory folder path (option of setting IDM) to another drive, eg D: \ IDM (step 3on my tricks) and then do my trick above...

Good luck..

by the way we mostly use idm to download video files which browsers could not catch..but IDM has capability to do so ..then how is step 9 and 10 gone work...

Balas

@himanshu mertia:
1. Choose the biggest file (40MB)
2. For download with browser(Mozilla), just copy the URL address obtained from the IDM and then paste into the address browser (Mozilla)..

But there is a very simple way to get this done!
> Right click the video file and select 'Refresh Download'
> A message will appear, saying start the download from the browzer again.
> click OK
> New window will open and saying that waiting for new address.
> Open your browzer again download the same file again(In my case Mozilla)
> Pause the download and copy the download link
> Click 'add URL' on IDM, click 'OK'
> A message will appear and ask you to check the new address
> click OKs
> Resume the download
Thant's all!

Hi, i got that problem, and after see the guide i have trie something diferent.

i just get the link from download properties at IDM, add new download, and stop it.
After this i go to the IDM temporary folder and past the 9% download files, to the new download folder. Note: delete de existing files in the new folder except the log file, and dont copy the log file from dr 99% folder to the new folder.
After this resume the new download and she as going tell you that 95% is already complete.

So, i use IDM to recover file instead the mozila.

thanks a lot.. it really works

Boss, the above procedure applies only if the website(from where we are downloading) supports resume. Otherwise, Mozilla default downloader itself throws error message "cannot be downloaded".

NO NEED OF THIS TYPE OF CRITICAL SOLUTION.. I HAVE THE EASIEST ONE.
1.suppose you are downloading a file with idm ,when it comes to 99% idm says that refreshing owners adrress ...., then just stop download.
2.now go to that site from where you are downloading this...go to the page where is the download button.

3.now right click on the button and copy the url adrress
4.then open idm , right click on the file which was failed to download..click on properties....there in the adress box delete the old and paste the new copied adress...press ok... now right click and resume
....that's all..happy downloading.

if you have a fixed broadband connection then using more than 1 connection option causes the issue, switch to 1 connection when you experience the 0 speed issue.
