Do you want to recover unfinished download from IDM? Are you looking for IDM temp folder location? If yes, you are on the right page.
So, where does IDM store incomplete downloads?
Conventionally all temporary download files are stored in %temp% folder in Windows. But it is different for IDM (Internet Download Manager) where temporary Incomplete download files are saved in AppData folder.
To find the exact location of the folder or to change the location, Open IDM and click ‘downloads’ and then ‘options’ in the Menu bar.
IDM >> Downloads >> Options.
You will get a new popup window. Here select ‘save to’ tab and in this section, you will see the location of the temporary file (IDM temp folder). Just copy the location and enter it in your My Computer’s address bar. See the screenshot below:
Once you are in the folder, go to DwnlData folder and then one more folder (USERNAME).
Right-click and select sort by ‘last modified date’ to set the latest incomplete download file first.
Note: The contents of incomplete .exe, .rar, .zip files cannot be recovered. If you have incomplete media file like video, it might play when you just rename the extension or drag and drop it in Media player.
