Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hello, OSM community. Please forgive this unusual question.

I have been unable to download the required processed_p.tar.bz2 after several attempts; the download aborts silently on windows and ubuntu using browser and wget. After 4 attempts no completion of more than 75% of the file. I was able to download the shoreline_300 and world_boundaries-spherical archives with no problem, but that big file eludes me.

The question: is there a mirror site for these files? Or perhaps might someone take pity on me and provide a link to the file on their own server?

I thank you all.

Worked for me.

Check your available disk space, maybe?

Also, wget supports a "continue" option (--continue) that allows you to download the rest of a file if the download has aborted half way through.
