I'm downloading GTA V. After 20gb / 100gb I paused my download for restarting my pc. Then download restarts from 0%.

Why this could happen? Can I restart my PC during downloads without losing progress?

    Does this answer your question? If I close the Epic Launcher during a download, will the download fail?

    @arghtype the answer to that question says the download should pause. He's having a different problem where his downloads completely restart.

Don't pause or exit Epic Games launcher when you are still downloading. If the Wi-Fi is off, restart your PC. If you want to shutdown your PC, shut it down without pausing the game or exiting Epic Games. This worked for me.
