Losing subscribed groups on open/close?

Post by haldir »

Just recently after my update to the newest NL version, For some reason whenever I open and close NL, I lose my list of subscribed groups.


Has anyone else come across this?

IIRC, your data files have become corrupt. Delete all the files in C:\Program Files\NewsLeecher\data and start over.

This might work, but you'll also lose all your settings, queued items, headers etc.
If it's only the subscribed groups that are giving you problems you might want to try deleting the newsleecher/data/groups_sub.dat file first, that way you'll only lose your subscribed groups...

Try dwarezgek's suggestion first. He's right you'll loose all your settings deleting everything. If that doesn't work, delete them all.
