You may be pasting a view of the file you want to download instead of the actual file. You should try to get the actual url where your file is located so the Galaxy server can then download it from the source server.

I cannot see any of the graphics, so guessing a bit here.

Where are you loading the data? or other (local, cloud, alternate public site? URL?)

Be aware that when loading via URL, it must be publically accessible. If private, the URL it has to include your user/pass credentials.

Downloading locally to your computer then uploading to Galaxy using FTP is always an option. Should you downloaded this way, it would permit you to examine the file itself for integrity - for example, run a simple Samtools command against it.

Please share more details and we can try to help. Jen, Galaxy project

(ps: good advice also from segador67)
