No, you don't. wget doesn't produce split download parts. If you start 
wget a second time and it finds the filename already exists it adds .1 to 
the new file and so on. All the older files are just failed downloads 
starting at byte 0. If your file isn't as long as it should (tried crc or 
md5?) then this simply means it's not yet completely finished. You may 
*now* want to use the -c switch on it. First remove the old files and then 
rename this existing file to what it should be.
