dota 2 download restarted twice OMG

Hello guy i am new in steam and i have a problem about downloading system in steam . .

before this i never use steam, i instal steam because i get betakey dota 2 from playdota.com and this is my first time use steam so i hope you all can help me solve my problem

ok let's starts

1.19 dec i won betakey from playdota.com and i instal steam to download the client, so far so good

2.22 dec i have 1,278 MB from 1,711MB dota client it's about 85%
(gahaha 15% again)

SUDDENLY !!!!!

the percent download become 0% WTF, so i am searching google to solve this problem and i got some tips from web :

1.pause download, exit steam, resume and the percent will back (not work)
2.dobel klik from game account in desktop (not work)
3.rename client registry (not work)
4.Change underregion (not work)
5.change my connection setting rate (not work)

i am ver depresed because the percnet not back and i read some people trying to download again and after 3% or 40% download the steam say download finished and they are can play the game

so i try to download again hope my percentage will back

again when my download Reach 100MB it's back to 0% AGAIN WTF

i decide to download again, and until now i got 48% to finish T_T

my question, i see the size of dota 2 client is 1,711 MB, But in my steam folder the SIze is 3,1 GB WTF it almost twice of dota 2 client size, is it possible my steam download the same file ??

and i got many e-mail tell me something about code because someone login with my id in different place

Are you sure Steam is actually completely restarting the download? It could be that Steam is merely painstakingly reporting on the current download progress rather than the download as a whole.

Steam is likely continuing with the overall download and it is not starting from the beginning. Have you tried verifying your game files?

In your "My Games" list, right click Dota2 and select "Properties". Then select the "Local Files" tab and select to verify the game files.

Your Steam installation folder is going to be larger than your Dota2 folder. How large is your actual Dota2 folder? It is in Steamapps>common within your Steam installation folder itself.

This is where your Dota2 folder is - C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta

The Dota2 folder is usually 2.95GB so you may have a little downloading to go yet.
