Request to add Chunk Downloads, download resume feature
When a large file fails to download, users will have to start the download from the beginning all over again. We would like a retry/resume feature.
Good morning, Box supports 'HTTP Range Headers' for downloads that allow Browsers or any compatible client to request ranges of the data instead of the full file at once. This allows browsers to pause and resume downloads from Box. More details about HTTP Range Headers here: developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/R.

Chunked/resumable downloads would be great and make a lot of sense now that Box files can be so exceptionally large. The download framework needs to be updated to match those big file sizes.
Not only for download, but also upload. The box drive is hard to use to backup big files without such feature.
This should be a feature form day 1, a total shame for person who introduced box without such feature ... as usual new tools are way worst then old ones. Moreover it should be no a 'votable' feature it should be added ASAP without any question . My download has failed now two times in a row, and no one is going to redeem for my lost transfer over paid network..
