Lost all groups and headers

This is the third time for this problem. I start newsleecher like normal and all the groups and headers are gone. It takes almost a week to get all the headers for my groups, so you can see this is a major frustration. Newsleecher knows who my server is, how many channels to use, etc. It does not sh...

I don't use supersearch, just the normal usenet listing of headers. So I guess this is a bug or lack of a feature in v4. In v3, it correctly created the directory structure and placed associated selected files in the right directory when the pop-up box was cleared and new text (diretory name) entere...

V4 Sub-directory freak out

This worked in version3 and could just be a setup error in V4b7. I want my downloads in groups and item folders. See below: alt.binaries.msn -----windows 7 rtm (title added during export to NZB) ------------files (where files are what I marked for download) I mark the files I want, then export that ...

3.95 ran now there are no articles or groups in it or ver.4

I have 3.95 set to run automatically on boot up. I should have removed it earlier, but oh well. MS rebooted me overnight and 3.95 ran as it was supposed to only there are no articles or groups shown. When I run 4, there are no articles or groups shown. I have worked days getting headers into 4 and w...

Advanced Nerd Tweaks?

How do we get the date column back to 3d4h format. It may be in the advanced section, but I don't seem to understand all that is in there. Could we get a run down of the variables in that section or if it can have additional variables added? Muchly appreciated.

Set # of download channels for header retrieval

Set # of download channels for header retrieval. Did this go away in 4 or am I just missing it? I only get 5 channels downloading and on my system 8 in the magic number. Thanks.

Nested Virtual Groups?

I was trying to do nested virtual groups and have not found a way to do that (creating a tree structure or hierarchy.) Does anyone know if that can be done and how?

Thanks,

Articles Windows Jumping Left adn Right as it is highlighted

The tree just goes away and some text borders are left. It's a great feature, I just want to control it as it can be really annoying when you are working on something. Hope you understand what I am asking, because I sure don't :)

Oh Vista Ultimate, latest beta, etc. Thanks for any help.

I have the # of messages per grab off, have purged the groups and started over (recommended here once before) and I still get two days worth of headers maybe. Throug...

Maximum retention days in Newsleecher 3.9b6

With Giganews massive increase in storage, I would like to keep more headers available. When I set the number to 222 days, NL does not get but a couple of days worth of headers. I tried purging the caches and starting over, but got the same result. Is there a maximum number of days NL can handle and...

Moving NewsLeecher to my new computer

I would like to move NL to my new computer. Is there a procedure to migrate over to a new machine? Vista on the new machine if that is important. Thanks in advance.

So I figured out how to get the headers, but they keep getting deleted the first time I visit the virtual group. I have it set to hold the headers for 99 days. So what the heck is going on? It happens in all five of my virtual groups! This just isn't going to cut it. I'm falling back to Beta6 if I c...
