I have downloaded 50% of DoTa 2 a few days ago and paused it to resume later on but when I resumed it, it restarted to download from 0 again. I can't do anything so I just start downloading it again for the whole day and reach 50% again. Then since it is still not done I have paused it again and expecting to resume it the next day but when I try to resume it again the download started again back at 0

Steam does that sometimes. If it starts from 0 again then chances are it's downloading the rest of the game, instead of the whole game itself. Check the "downloads" tab in you're library when you're downloading a game next time. It tells you how fast you're downloading it and how much there is to download. If worse comes to worse, delete the dota 2 files in you're steamapps folder and start all over :).

I've been there, long time steam user. No worries :)

Same thing happened to me.. Yesterday it was 80% and now this morning it's restarted from zero. Checked the Downloads tab but it just shows the restarted download status. =( Now I will have to start the download all over again?

1. Make sure you installed steam correctly.
2. Press pause before closing steam.
3. Make sure you exit steam before shutting down your PC.

I will tell you why.
This happened to me before, what I found out is if you pause it before an update, and they updated with the new patch, steam wouldn't recognise the dota2 and will restart your download.
Sorry I do not know a fix to this.

Just gotta redownload?

Just copy paste the files from someone physically and Steam will use them. Do not go looking for the files over the internet.
