Gaurav Singh (1 year ago)
Pranish Vajarinkar don't do it if the patch is in package file It will fuck up your installation There must be some another fix for it
Pranish Vajarinkar (1 year ago)
What if I'm downloading patch of game already downloaded where to paste downloaded patch and what name to give it
Gaurav Singh (1 year ago)
Pranish Vajarinkar ya sometimes it happens I recommend making a backup of downloading files everytime before you shutdown your system. See if it helps

Joe Thornton (1 year ago)
Notorious Singh ok I want dota 2 and i paused that download and since I resume that the download resets at zero and i follow what you're doing and nothing happens ;(
Gaurav Singh (1 year ago)
depends on size of folder, i showed it using a small size game, larger will take time
Khenjie PH (1 year ago)

Gaurav Singh (1 year ago)

Gaurav Singh (1 year ago)

Harshit Dwivedi (1 year ago)
I am downloading csgo and it always resumes when I start my pc , so I think there are no issues , am I right??
Gaurav Singh (1 year ago)
if its happening again and again after you restart your pc, something is wrong with your steam software
Gaurav Singh (1 year ago)
no, only when it crashes and starts downloading again
