HELP! Witcher 2 was 99% done downloading and it started over

Why? It was so close...

From where? You sure it's just not 'validating' the files?

If you purchased it elsewhere, you can DL a DRM-free copy from GOG. I suggest you go that route, so you never have to DL it again.

I got it from steam. I'd love to get the gog version, but its 16GB and it would take about 30 hours to download that(I have a 1mb down connection), not sure if I want to leave my computer on that long.

Unless gog has some sort of download manager I'm not aware of so I don't have to download it all in one go.

It might have finished downloading and now applying a patch? Or is it getting the whole thing from scratch again?

And yes, GOG does have a download manager.

You're getting closer, leave it DLing for a few more months and you might get there.

Do I have to download the game all at once when I use the gog.com downloader? I had it started before I turned my pc off, then now when I turned it back on it was back to the beginning...

No, it's supposed to resume.

Did you properly pause it or just do a hard shutdown mid download?

I don't know man. Can't you just leave the computer on through the night to download it?

No, I mean I did that and it still restarted the download.

@Krisnatharok I could, and probably will. But its the principle. GOG.com's webpage says I can turn my computer off and resume. I want to learn how to get it working.

It does and I have. I don't know if you are running scripts that are clearing out temp files (a la CCleaner or something) prior to shutdown or what. Good luck with your quest, but the problem is probably your computer, since it did it to both Steam and GOG.

Are you running out of space?

Nope, I got about 236GB left on my hard drive. Haven't run ccleaner in a long time ether. Not sure what else would cause that, it doesn't happen to my torrents when I torrent something. Admittedly all I've ever torrented are HIB games though,
