Use a torrent download (the same site has torrent versions). It's likely
to be faster, not to mention easier to restart partial downloads.
His complaint was that his download did not complete. A torrent would be
a complete restart. And a torrent, at this late date, would/could be
slow since the possibility od acctive 'seeds' would/could be small.
And, IMO, since he can not complete, or resume, an oridinary d/l -- you
expect him to preform a torrent d/l? God luck with that.
