I was downloading a file using wget, about 700MBs were downloaded but some MBs were still left, and the terminal was still downloading the file, but eventually, my system turned off. What will happen to that 700MBs, where that MBs were gone, stored. From where can I get that half downloaded file, which part of my storage will be used by that file. Can I continue to download that file, where It was stopped terminated?

  • Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Could you please add a little more detail? What exactly did you do, what did you expect to happen and what happened instead? Did you encounter any warning or error messages? Please reproduce them in their entirety in your question. You can select, copy and paste terminal content and most dialogue messages in Ubuntu. Please edit your post to add information instead of posting a comment (see How do I ask a good question?). Thanks. – David Foerster Oct 31 '18 at 9:16

Half downloaded. You can start all over again.

  • I recommend to edit this answer to expand it with specific details about how to do this. (See also How do I write a good answer? for general advice about what sorts of answers are considered most valuable on Ask Ubuntu.) – David Foerster Oct 31 '18 at 9:16
