Yeah I understand it better now because I have been chatting with Rene
about it. I just never really thought about how this might work since
I usually am so careful with files that are being downloaded
(especially big downloads which I would rather not have to restart.)

It is interesting to know they are more robust. And of course the
features you have added are handy too (you could move a big
in-progress download to another volume if your current volume was
running out of space for example.)
