v4b7 repair and extract and iso == corrupt

I have been noticing lots of times that repair and extract will seem to extract files and and not move them to the extract directory. or It may but they have corruptions.

If I use the par2 I can sometimes fix them I have not seen a pattern to what causes it yet.

if you hard drive is getting pounded a lot check in the settings and make sure that this is unchecked under download settings. move small articles to top of que. I found that makes newsleecher repair and extract start trying to process every file you have dowloading all at once. if you uncheck it. t...

on the manager for the servers you can edit the servers and set them to only get headers or the messages. you can make more than one account to the same server just watch the threads you use. i find for cable modem 2 threads seem to be enough for headers either with compressed headers or not they on...

Lockup on delete from dowload folder.

When I "delete" some files from the download folder it makes newsleecher lockup. The bad word is delete. Open download folder delete something that the repair and extract is watching. Whats worse is your backup routine is still awful after 4 years and it looses pointers for everything that has downl...

Would calling them alpha make them work better. I wonder if nl could have a standard main window that does not keep changeing that people could write there interfaces to. then make the main newsleecher program a sub module that talks to it also. oh What I really came to jot down was I noticed that i...

in nerd tweeks there is a setting for download tracking days I set it to a little past server retention like 330 or 400

I think this does it now.


I changed the group browsing maximum simultaneous updates down to 2 to speed up things with so many headers.

lockup or windows interface problems.

I have had the program lock up one time so far not sure what caused it. Just now it was hard to minimize or maximize. It was still receiving binarys and seemed to be trying to do repair and extract but rne seemed stuck. this is what showed on the log between the other messages. this error seemed to ...

unable to delete from r&E que if it is set to not run.

if you uncheck the box that makes the repair and extract run.

then try to select all the items in the cue and right click to cancel them all. you cannot.


you have to enable to cue first then it will let you but it starts repairing things then. this seems wrong .

If they are hitting the max speed of you downloads then there is no advantage to having it download more than 1. You can give servers different names. Then use another copy of newsleecher in another folder. on my system I get about 20 threads from my newsprovider but on cable I can max them out with...

tech You may have got nzb from a server with bad pointers that did not match your server. Things that can happen is downloading stuff from unknown people that have executables that wreck things. Iso cd images can have a autostart that virus you machine. Other files can also if you are going to downl...

just upgraded to 4b5

most of the problems seem to have gone now. speed is doing great.

It can get headers and repair at same time. Still notice slight latency but that is due to my drive layout.

keep up the good work

looking forward to what is next.

Just wondering if the header compression works with astraweb and others like giga has. I know you were trying to get that some time I see someone was mentioning faster speed.
