a case, what would be the expected outcome? Should Wget delete the larger file? Or retain it?
It should delete partial file.The full file must not be downloaded , the download will stop when downloaded stuff reaches limit.For example ,/maxsize 100000 while downloading 100 Mb file without size in header - stops at 10 Mb and deletes the downloaded chunk.

I'm not too sure if this is feature is required. But if you already have it implemented, do share it on this list and we may consider merging it into the codebase.
I have it,but in old compilation of version 1.9, will try to compile the last one
nderstand. I would suggest you give a concrete example with a real URL and the corresponding filename.

It seems like you're on Windows and Wget creates some filename which Windows refuses to create. We may only have to rename the output filenames for Windows in that case. Do provide a precise example so that we can understand the problem better.

I will send as I will find one
also related to bad names. With -N -O the wget can look at timestamp of file named as written in "-O". Please explain why this is not OK.
I don't understand what you're asking for. Could you please be more clear on your position as to why -N and -O have a use-case when used together?

The usage is keeping a file up to date when the output provides bad. Either the file cannot be created or working with bad name is not convenient. The process runs automatically periodically.wget -O file.bin -N http://dsjdjfkfkfdfd... - either tells "the file is not newer" or downloads new version.If the download fails - it keeps
old file. Then following batches process the data accordingly.
