Topic: file.al downloads

First off thanks CC for all the content and all the time you must have put in over many years.

Is there some trick to successfully downloading files from file.al?
I've started using jdownloader but still encounter downloads dropping out and then encountering server 404 errors, or download limits exceeded type errors and having to start over, makes trying to download any file greater than 100mb next to impossible.
Any suggestions fellow downloaders, is there some trick to do in jdownloader to resume a download from it's previous point rather than starting from scratch.
