Onaylanmayan CRDownload Dosyası Hakkında Sık Sorulan Sorular
What is a CRDOWNLOAD file and how to open it?
If you use Google Chrome or any other Chromium-based browser, such as Microsoft Edge, you may have encountered files with the ".crdownload" extension in your downloads folder. These files are not regular files, but partial downloads that are created by the browser while downloading a file from the internet.
In this article, we will explain what CRDOWNLOAD files are, how they are used, and how you can open, resume, delete, or prevent them from being created.
How to open a CRDOWNLOAD file
A CRDOWNLOAD file is not meant to be opened by any program, because it is not a complete file. It is only a temporary file that stores the contents of a file while the browser downloads it. However, there are some situations where you may want to open a CRDOWNLOAD file, such as when the download is interrupted or paused, or when you want to preview the file before it finishes downloading.
There are two ways you can try to open a CRDOWNLOAD file:
Renaming the file extension: This method involves removing the ".crdownload" part from the file name and changing it to the original file extension. For example, if you have a file named "song.mp3.crdownload", you can rename it to "song.mp3" and try to play it with your media player. This may work if the download is almost complete or if the file format supports partial playback. However, this method may not work if the download is incomplete or corrupted, or if the file format requires the whole file to be present.
Using VLC media player: This method involves using VLC media player, a free and open-source media player that can play almost any video or audio format, to open the CRDOWNLOAD file directly. VLC can play partial files without needing to rename them, as long as they have enough data to be recognized as valid media files. To use this method, you need to drag and drop the CRDOWNLOAD file into the open VLC program and wait for it to start playing. This may work for video or audio files that are partially downloaded, but it may not work for other types of files.
How to resume or delete a CRDOWNLOAD file
A CRDOWNLOAD file is usually automatically renamed or deleted by the browser when the download finishes successfully. However, sometimes the download may fail or stop due to various reasons, such as network problems, server issues, browser crashes, etc. In these cases, you may want to resume or delete the CRDOWNLOAD file manually.
There are two ways you can try to resume or delete a CRDOWNLOAD file:
Resuming the download: This method involves trying to continue the download from where it left off using either Chrome's built-in download manager or a command-line tool called WGet. To use Chrome's download manager, you need to open Chrome and go to chrome://downloads in your address bar. There you will Can I convert a CRDOWNLOAD file to another format?: No, you cannot convert a CRDOWNLOAD file to another format, because it is not a complete file. You need to finish the download or use another method to open the file before you can convert it.
Can I resume a CRDOWNLOAD file from another browser or computer?: No, you cannot resume a CRDOWNLOAD file from another browser or computer, because the file is linked to the original browser and download session. You need to use the same browser and computer to resume the download or start over from another source.
