Do you show the progress and the total file size on downloads?

When a user downloads a file from your site, they should see a progress bar along with the total size and estimated time, this way they will see the size of the download increasing and will knowing when it will finish.

bar progress bad
Figure: Bad example - there is no indication of the total size of the download or the percent complete, thus no estimate of how long left

bar progress good
Figure: Good example - percent complete, time left, total size and a progress bar are all shown
