i'm downloading mandrake 10 isos from a friends machine in a different state. i get cut off and have to restart the download. this will be my 3rd attempt at downloading the iso for cd2.

is there any way to resume a partially downloaded file after being disconnected from the dowload machine?

WinSCP supports transfer resume automatically, but only for SFTP protocol. You are probably using SCP. Switch to SFTP (see Session tab of login dialog).

If the transfer is broken, partially uploaded file should remain in target directory with extension .filepart. When you attempt to transfer the same file, WinSCP detects aborted transfer and let's you choose if you want to resume or restart transfer.

Check your preferences if you have transfer resume enabled (Transfer tab of Preferences dialog).
