One click on the Cleanup Queue button should only clear downloaded and paused items, but instead it clears everything.

That's a bug that appeared in Release 5, it would be great to see it fixed before the final V5 release.

Thanks.

I'm probably the only one having this problem, otherwise this forum would be drowned by people complaining about it, but every time I quit and restart NewsLeecher, the article list for all the subscribed groups comes up empty!

Edit: never mind, I did not set the retention limit...

Actually, in beta 7, clean-up removes all the queued files, instead of only removing paused and downloaded files.

How to clean-up and reset a group, cleaning all the headers?

I'm having some problems with v4 beta 22, and I would like to remove all the headers of a group to redownload them and start anew.

How do I do that?

Thanks.

False incompletes

I posted this on the wrong forum, so I'm posting it here again. With V4 beta 20 & 22, I noticed recently the following behavior: . At some point, files are downloaded out of order. . After that, all downloaded files are 100% broken, with 0 available parts. . Restarting NL and re-downloading the file...

Well, even with one server, this happens all the time now.

After a while, NL starts getting broken files, and I have to stop and restart it before it's able again to get the files intact.

False incompletes

Hi, With V4 beta 20, I noticed recently the following behavior: . I'm set up to download from 2 servers (GN US and EU). . A some point of a download, each server starts downloading a different file, rather than downloading the parts of the same file as usual. . The 'Status' field shows that a lot of...

Automatic search for new available parts

Let's say you are downloading a set of files like: foo.part001.rar, ...., foo.part010.rar by hitting Control-y after selecting these files. There should be an "Automatic search for new items" check box in the Control-y dialog. The same "Automatic search for new items" should also be available in the...

I second that.

Every time there is a new version, something goes away. I just cannot understand the (lack of) reasoning about that.

No answer?

Well, why am I not surprised? I reported this problem a long while ago, and it was never addressed.

Slow download with large groups

With 3.95 beta 3 and previous versions, there is a slowdown in speed download when the displayed group becomes very large. My download speed is usually around 20 Mbs. When I start a download with a large group such as alt.binaries.hdtv, the speed is often less than the 10th of what it should be. Hit...

Re: 4.0 beta 1 issues here

[*] Binaries/Text/Incomplete/Leeched show/hide filters in the Articles page are missing. These might not be possible with the new collection view system. Really? Well, that kills Newsleecher for me. How can you permanently remove such useful features? It's not the first time that you remove interes...

Robena, i have the same problem as you, but i "solved" it by putting the whole name of the folder in the upper textbox. When i click <ctrl>+y to save my files, i simply press the delete button, clearing the bottom textbox, so the upper one is the folder where i want to save :-) It's like before, bu...

what you have described is how the leech specify system works. When you press control-y, it will open the dialog and put the subject of the post in the destination folder field. I see, it's a new feature. This was not the way the previous release was working. There is nothing to do then, but I don'...

Thanks, but that did not hep. The problem is that when I select a post and click Control-Y, the complete name of the selected entry goes into the "Leech Specify Destination" field, and overrides the memorized content. Here is a screen cap showing what happens: http://rapidshare.com/files/191947915/l...
