I downloaded a RAR file of 3GB, it completed in a time of 10hrs due to low Internet speed, problem is the the file in the DM window says 3gb, but the destination folder only has 1GB. I am a first time user so any help would be grateful. When I try to extract the file from the Download Manager window it says file format unknown.

The file you have downloaded might be corrupted, even if the download was finished. You should check the source of the file and the status. Because of various causes, the files you download might get broken along the way. One way is to try to download the software without the manager. It's known that some websites, intentionally provide corrupt files to avoid throttling of their servers. There is nothing you can do except checking the file you're downloading.
