Chrome partial download file description

The .crdownload file is a temporary file used by Google Chrome to store the progress of a file currently being downloaded.

It is created when you start downloading a file through Google Chrome and is automatically deleted once the download is complete.

If the download is interrupted or paused, the .crdownload file remains in your download directory to reserve the space and store the partially downloaded data. This ensures that the download is resumed later from where it left off instead of starting over.

If you see a .crdownload file in your default Downloads directory, it usually means it is not completely downloaded.
