So, for whatever reason, you were downloading a huge file from the Nexus through Mod Organizer, got it to like 70%, and then the power went out, you quit Mod Organizer, or something else happened, and now it won't download. You try to click resume, but all you get is a "Download failed: Error downloading https://filedelivery.nexusmods.com............. - server replied: Forbidden (202) " message. You say to yourself, "Boy, I sure wish I wouldn't have to download the whole file over again!" Well, here's how you can:


  1. Go to the download page on the Nexus
  2. On the desired file, click the "download manually'' link
  3. Once the file is beginning to download, pause it.
  4. Copy the download link.
  5. Close Mod Organizer. Keep it closed for this step.
  6. Go to your downloads directory and find the .unfinished.meta file for the file you were downloading.
  7. Open the file with a text editor (such as Notepad or Notepad++)
  8. In the url field, remove the download link there and replace it with your new download link retrieved from your paused download. Be sure to keep the quotes around the link.
  9. Save the modified meta file.
  10. Start Mod Organizer and click resume.

Happy Downloading!
