You can also Cancel and Continue. (Longer start up than resume.)
If you just shutdown or kill it, part of the cache files are missing and it
will have to re-download the files because of the missing data.

There is no resume button, only Start <>

Resume continues exactly where it left off, all the data in RAM.
Continue, has to reread the cache files to get where it left off.
Update, starts at the starting URL and asks the server has this file changed
since last time (last time is in the cache.)

No. A rar is just a file, it doesn't look inside. (7z is free, open source,
can process rar and zip, and can compress better.)

If you filter them out, the links will either point to the online url or a
warning page (no external pages.)
Don't delete the .tmp files, they contain internal processing data.
