paste the contents of your ini file here. perhaps the location is invalid so NewsLeecher is using the default location.

also when you launch NewsLeecher and it can't use the folder you told it, it should say something in the log. paste that info here as well.
Please be aware of and use the following pages...
Services Status Page : SuperSearch and Usenet Access server status, retention, server load, indexing time, etc.
Support Request Form : Use this if you have a problem with billing or account status. The forum is only for NewsLeecher application issues.

You have to use a different syntax in the ini for v4. This is how it's now:

Code: Select all

dataFolder=D:\Installed Programs\NewsLeecher v4\data\
tempFolder=D:\Installed Programs\Newsleecher v4\temp\
Fill in your bugs so NL will get better.
