Open File Extension PART
File extension PART is used by many file download applications to store PARTial downloads. Most of download applications fall into one of the two groups:
- Download managers. These applications assist in downloading large amounts of information from FTP and HTTP servers. They are very useful for downloading huge files when chances of connection breaking before file is fully downloaded are large. If this happens download manager would resume the download rather than starting it from the scratch. Download managers are also useful when downloading hundreds of smaller files.
- P2P download clients. These applications are used for downloading files from Peer-to-peer file sharing networks such as eDonkey, BitTorrent etc. In P2P networks files are not stored on one central server. Instead user's computers are used to store portions of files or entire files making it available to the rest of the network.
We recommend using extreme caution when downloading files from the Internet either from HTTP/FTP servers or from P2P networks. These files can often contain trojans and viruses. It is also common to distribute pirated software, music and videos over the internet. Downloading and sharing such data may cause severe legal consequences.
