Windows 10: Win10 download auto-resume if connection fails? Solved

    Win10 download auto-resume if connection fails?


    Hi All, I just called Microsoft India and they said if I use the Window 10 Upgrade System Tray Icon to do the download then it will auto-resume with no data loss if the internet connection fails. She said if I try to download Win 10 Upgrade some other way then it does not have auto-resume and I'll lose the data and have to start over.

    Just wondering if anyone can confirm this? Thanks!

    I have 3G cellular internet here in India. It is unreliable and slow and often drops out. So auto-resume is an absolute necessity if I want to successfully upgrade to Win10.

    Sounds just like South Africa re: your "slow" and "unreliable"

    I downloaded the Win 10 ISO, using the MS Media Creation tool. But I have yet to install it

    Do you also have 3G cellular internet like me? How many GB was the Win10 ISO download? How long did it take to download? Did your internet connection fail during the download? If it failed, were you able to auto-resume with no data loss?

    There's no way I would be able to download 1GB or more here in India with my slow and unreliable 3G cellular internet.

    Did you notice if the ISO download and/or the update download had auto-resume capability in case the internet connection dropped?

    Both will re-download

    Auto-Resume = Download again automatically

    Neither Option provides a Download Manager per say

    Use what you got.. If it fails, it fails.. If not, all the better..

    OK, it seems you're saying for both that if the net connection fails in the middle of the download, then the download will start over from the beginning and all the previously downloaded data will be lost. I have that right? Thanks,
