Relax.

The percentage show is normally only what is left of the section you need to download yet.

The counter is reset if the download is interrupted. The portion you already DLed is still there.

Only one thing to do. Wait until it finishes, find out if I was correct or not.

Nothing else can be done at this point anyway.

It is no different than shutting Steam down in the middle of a download.

So, yes, it comes up often.

So,if my 1700+ mb of file is not gone then this new download must end at 300-350mb because the total download file is 2066mb?
