What is a RESUME file?

The .resume file format is used by Netscape SmartDownload to save digital media with partially downloaded content. These RESUME files are classified as temporary files that may also be generated by other download management tools and applets aside from the Netscape SmartDownload application.A RESUME file may contain data associated with the media file that's currently being downloaded by Netscape SmartDownload. These .resume files are normally stored in the same directory where the user chose to download the associated media files.Opening these .resume files by using the application that created it may instruct the program to continue the download process for the associated media. These RESUME files may also contain code that's relevant to the Web directory location of the corresponding media file among other pieces of information, which can allow Netscape SmartDownload to properly download the file, or to continue with the download process without issues (in case the download process abruptly stops for any reason).
