This sample shows how to use the GetReadStream(Int64, Int64, String) method. First 1024 bytes of server file are already saved to local file. Code tries to download the rest of the file content.
string license = "<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf...
WebDavSession session = new WebDavSession(license);
session.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("User1", "pwd");
IFolder folder = session.OpenFolder(new Uri("http://server:8080/Sales"));
FileInfo file = new FileInfo("C:\\Temp\\Products.cff");
IFile file = folder.GetResource(file.Name);

string etag = file.Etag;
int bufSize = 1048576; // 1Mb
byte[] buffer = new byte[bufSize];
int totalWritten = 10;

using (Stream stream = file.GetReadStream(totalWritten, resource.ContentLength, etag, out contentModified))
    if (contentModified)
        totalWritten = 0; // entire file content is returned
    using (FileStream fs = file.OpenWrite())
        fs.Seek(totalWritten, SeekOrigin.Begin);
        int bytesRead;
        while ((bytesRead = stream.Read(buffer, 0, bufSize)) > 0)
            fs.Write(buffer, 0, bytesRead);
