We are pleased to announce that the new version of Free Download Manager 6.14.2 is now available for downloading.
We have worked hard to improve your experience with the FDM program. In addition to minor improvements and bug fixes, a revision of the core was made – now, FDM does not create .freedownloadmanager service folders on drives where files are downloaded.
We would like to thank all the users who helped us improve Free Download Manager by submitting bug reports and testing the beta builds. Your assistance is truly appreciated!
Download the new FDM 6.14.2 and share your feedback on our forum!

How do I Resume Broken/Expired download link? Please add this feature in next update.
You can though, Just grab the new link and just try to download a new file and it will auto-detect it and you can hit resume instead of new file
Experiencing problem of integration with Google Chrome, it is slowing down the browser and also functionality is compromised.
Please create a new ticket here https://www.freedownloadmanager.org/support-center/open.php for us to solve the issue.
Since the last two releases the “Fle is missing” indicator does not automatically display on the file list status column when a file is deleted / renamed on the system. i am having to restart the app to identify renamed or missing files. if this feature was intentionally removed please add a refresh button so i can refresh the list without having to exit and restart the app every time.
Thank you for the report!

Thx, it was very good 🙂
FDM is not creating a specific folder for the same type of files. Is that issue solved in this update?
Could you kindly describe your problem in more detail?
I can’t find the enable/disable seeding option
You can find this option by right-clicking the download in the context menu.
Also, you can disable seeding by hovering your mouse over the download or the taskbar where the download info is provided.
Even after years of development, it doesn’t have the basic feature of a download manger that is changing the queue order manually.
This feature is added to the next release.
Should we keep the same folder installation when updating to 6.14.2?
It is nowhere to be seen. Nobody says nor explains that.
The installer asks where to install, and when I point to the folder where the previous version of FDM had been installed, it says ” Folder already exists. Would you like to install to that folder anyway?”
What do I need to do in order to keep the history and so on: same folder or new one?
Do you mean updating from FDM 5 to FDM 6? Please use a new folder as the installer suggests. It won’t prevent importing data from FDM 5.

We’ll add your feature suggestion to our to-do list.
Please specify your OS. Have you tried FDM6? If yes, what’s wrong with it?
In the advanced options -> fixed default download folder, when using %content_type% macro (ex: G:/Downloads/%content_type%), it does not recognize .exe and compressed files (.zip, .rar…). It will put them in the Miscellaneous folder, I would love to add two separate additional folders for compressed and executables. Thanks.
Thanks for your feature suggestion!
Force reannounce / Force recheck options not available in updated version. Pls guide.
There’s no such functionality in FDM. Thank you for the feature suggestion.
