So I'm looking to get the new El Capitan update. Problem is, my internet connection is slow and I'll probably have to download it over 2 days. If I pause the download, shut off my Mac, and start it back up again, will the download resume, or will it have to start from scratch again?

  • @Tetsujin Not quite sure that's what I'm looking for... That question seems to be about something that happens after the download is compleme – CraftedCart Oct 1 '15 at 19:34
  • Presumably, the download just auto-resumes. I can't test, as I already have the DL & I don't want to DL another 6GB just for fun ;) – Tetsujin Oct 1 '15 at 19:44

So I got the message "An error occurred" when it was nearly done. I gave up, shut my Mac down later that day, started it back up, tried the download again and it resumed from where it failed
