Hi Graham, How about using a download manager that does the chopping/zipping and unchopping for you so you can be sure that when you restart all the bits are ther. There are a coupler of free ones and some paid for http://www.flashget.com/en/download.html

The answer, paradoxically, is to move to  a silly little village half-an-hour away from a city in Bulgaria, as I have unlimited fibre-optic internet for $5 a month. According to Ookla my download speed is about 61 Mbps, and my upload speed is 48 Mbps. I really don't know what those numbers

Hey everyone. Chopping up a gigantic file into little bits to be zipped then uploaded is nuts. Chopped nuts! The A in ADSL means ASYMETRICAL - which means uneven- upload speed and is a fraction of the download speed. It would take a long time with most POTS internets to upload gigabyte files.
