DOWNLOAD file converter How to convert DOWNLOAD file?

What is DOWNLOAD file?


The .DOWNLOAD file is a file extension that is used to identify partially downloaded files. These types of files are not fully downloaded and data-heavy, so they can be used to share with other users who have a high-speed connection. The .DOWNLOAD file extension was first introduced back in 1996 and was originally meant for use on BBS systems and FTP servers. Nowadays, the file extension is mostly associated with web hosting accounts that offer bandwidth overage protection programs. The most common way for an internet user to access .DOWNLOAD files is by using the browser’s download manager which automatically detects when you try to download or save a large file and converts it into an .APPX package instead of downloading it completely.
