Well, you got your wish, 3 major NZB sites have all died this week. I used them a lot so I am not happy myself, as many posts were numbered or coded (ones not on a DMCA list) and Supersearch won't help with that aspect.

As mentioned in many other posts, this is most likely a DMCA issue, there are now automated instant removals from USP's (such as Astraweb) for items that are on certain companies "taken down" lists. For instance, even TV shows will be on this list, so just because they are free to air don't think th...

When you say ALL items, are you going for popular ones ? Try and download a free item of software, such as a Linux distro, and see if the same happens. If it does, then we can definitely rule out the DMCA side of things being the issue. If it does still happen with free software, then have you got a...

Check the logs. Is there red text in there ? Fast downloading is usually when a item has been removed from the server you are downloading from, either due to DMCA or just being too old for the retention of your usenet server. If you are using a free server then it may be you are trying to download s...

As mentioned in a previous post on this forum yesterday in a similar thread, are you sure this is not a DMCA issue ? That is the same error message you will get for archives removed by the newsgroup server. Obviously I can't mention any names of things that I know have been removed as examples, but ...

I think these are DMCA files, loads of archives are being taken down by Astraweb and others (any that subscribe to DMCA rules, which excludes European based ones), this is the message I believe you will see when they (your usenet company) have removed the actual content from their server but stupidl...

Got the same problem, set it just for passworded RAR but one with a subs folder with RAR archive paused for some reason, I don't think the subs are password protected. I am using the latest beta.

Thanks. In the end I had to remove the whole settings directory, the safe startup F12 didn't seem to help as it still gave errors. I tried renaming some of the BAK files and overwriting the normal ones, but that didn't work either. So I just decided to start from scratch and removed the whole direct...

HELP ! Do you have the previous Newsleecher beta still for download ?

I just installed the new Beta and my whole newsleecher is messed up. I have lost all the usenet accounts I had and I keep getting endless error messages pop up upon start up. I have re-put in all the servers but they are gone again the next time I load the software. I have uinstalled and reinstalled...

That feature of stopping rar in rar downloads sounds great. These people uploading all these passworded files must be making money, but surely after a while people should have learnt just to bin them and not go to the site they send you to. Just a handy little tip, always download the LAST rar file ...

When it says "Note: The data below *only* applies to the SuperSearch engine, used by NewsLeecher V3.9 and older." does that mean those of us using 4 and above have a different and more advanced system ? Also is the retention correct when it says only 204 days general and 74 erotica ?

Ditto, Mysterbin is great and to have the same feature within SuperSearch would be so very useful.

Under 200 days for erotica ?

Anytime I supersearch using the Erotica option it never seems to go above 200 days. Is this normal ? I have it set to 600 days and use Beta 19.
