Default Frozen Download

Last night I started a long download (~3 hours) before I went to sleep. This morning, I woke up and went to the computer. It seemed I had ran out of space (I think I was like 23 MB short or something), I used the 'clean up' option and also uninstalled a game. I immediately had enough space, it continued installing, and I went back to sleep for an hour. I got up, and now the download window doesn't say the percentage, but instead says 'File Dowload'. The window itself is not frozen, but the download apparently is.

"Estimated time left: 1 sec (821 MB of 821 MB copied)"

If I cancel it, will I have to wait 3 hours to download it again? Is there a way to save what I already downloaded? Should I just wait?

I believe if you have already downloaded most of it, it will go by faster until that point.

Unfortunately, IE, although there has apparently been FF on here this whole time. And I'm downloading a game client installer.

EDIT: I closed the download, and didn't get the space it took up back. I assume redownloading it will be fast. Testing...

EDIT2: Nevermind, I looked and suddenly had all my space back. I'll try downloading again later.

Well, at least your connection won't disconnect right before it finishes, and the server doesn't allow resuming the download... That would stink.
