* Dynamic file segmentation that uses in-half division rule .

* Selectable timeout time and number of connections to tune IDM to your particular connection type .

Dynamic file segmentation and connection reuse :

Internet Download Manager has optimized the file download logic . IDM divides downloaded file on file segments dynamically , unlike other download accelerators that divide downloaded file in segments once just before download process been starts . Dynamic segmentation gives significant download performance improvement . When file download starts , it’s unclear how many connections may be opened . When new connection becomes available IDM finds the largest segment to download and divide it in half . Thus new connection starts downloading file from the half of the largest file segment . IDM minimizes the time needed for negotiations with servers and keeps all connections busy .
On a progress bar
* Pink lines show start positions ,
* Blue – downloaded segments ,
* White – the segments to download .
Once a connection has downloaded a segment (when blue bar comes to a pink line) and if the next connection has not started to downloaded its segment yet , IDM reassignes the segment to the first connection . If the next connection has started to downloaded its segment , first connection helps other slowly working connections by dividing the largest segment in half . IDM won’t divide the segment only when its size is too small for this connection type .
When connections have finished downloading all segments , IDM will assemble segments into one file .
IDM saves all file positions several times per minute . Thus after you stoped/ paused downloading or even after unexpected power shutdown , Internet Download Manager will resume download and assemble file correctly .
