Hi

I downloaded a Windows 10 ISO file from Microsoft.

I went to the folder where I saved it and found this file name:

 

Win10_1511_1_English_x32.iso.part

 

It is not recognised by imgburn.

I deleted the .part but then I wondered that before I went ahead to burn it, am I doing the right thing here?

 

File type is PART FILE

The download was stopped before it completed. This file is not complete, hence the reason that it is not recognized.

 

You need a complete ISO image.

Just to reinforce what Rocky mentioned, any file you find with a .part extension is a partial (hence, part) download that didn't complete (or that's in the process of downloading at the moment).  You can catch part files "in action" during the period where a large download is in progress.  As soon as it successfully completes the .part extension is removed.

John,

 

         Something was very wrong then, in one way or another.  The ISO shouldn't take nearly that long to download unless you're on dial-up.

I would use a download manager with your browser. It the download stops for some reason you can continue where the file download stopped.

OK.

 

Believe it or not, I am on broadband but not that you'd notice!

 

My router synch speed is approx 2Mb/s with a following wind, (copper wire to the exchange - very antique).

 

The file was about 3.5GB if I remember and it was this afternoon when I downloaded. This time does not surprise me much. If only I could magic up some fibre....

 

I use Firefox and there is a download manager? an addon called video downloadhelper, I don't know if this is what you mean.

 

Perhaps you could suggest a download manager?

 

John

I use Download them All. I use this but I am not sure it will pick up the Windows 10 iso download using the Media Creation Tool. If you use the direct iso download it will work.

Well man, that ain't broadband, not even close. Broadband here in the United States is defined as 25 mbps, and you ain't even close.  https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20160122/05203433402/senators-whine-about-fccs-25-mbps-broadband-standard-insist-nobody-needs-that-much-bandwidth.shtml

 

But even at your antique speed, a Windows 10 ISO should only take about 4 to 5 hours so I think that you should try again.

 

Good luck.
