If you've ever found yourself downloading a large file in Google Chrome (like the 700MB Ubuntu distro) and had either Chrome or the OS crash, read on to find out how to recover and resume the download using wget
First, go to the folder where Chrome saves your downloads. For me, its ~/Downloads and list all files with .crdownload extension
In my case, I was trying to download a Slax distro, so ls reported
Now rename the file, removing the .crdownload extension.
Then get wget to continue the download for you!
this works on Windows too! Just rename the file in Windows Explorer and use wget for Windows.
