File Extension Database


The DOWNLOAD file format and extension files are a partially downloaded file type, created by the several web browsers, when no third-party download manager is used.

The DOWNLOAD file contains the content of the file that is being downloaded from the browser and has not yet been fully downloaded.

The DOWNLOAD file extension indicates that the download is incomplete.

This file is automatically deleted once the download is complete and the file is complete and ready to be used.

If for some reason the download of the file is interrupted, the web browser will restart the download, based on the structure of the DOWNLOAD file.

However, it is possible that the file will be corrupted, depending on the causes of the interruption, in this case it is better to restart the download from scratch.

If the download reaches 100%, but the downloaded file is not regenerated and the DOWNLOAD is not deleted automatically.
