you post it Fixxxer, where did you get it from?
As said in a post earlier, somebody pointed me in the direction.
This was posted in a newsgroup on the net.
Don't know if it safe to mention the group and the description here, I wanna still enjoy the software?

I don't know where Fixxxer found a beta, but as I posted in another thread of this forum (Wishlist for Santa/New version?) I got unofficial forum release #4 (ufr4) from the NewsLeecher site, using a link posted by Spiril back in January. That's about as official as an unofficial release can get. And the link here is to Spiril's post, not to the file itself, so you'll know it's legit.

Recently I looked for later versions and found ufr5, which is much less buggy than ufr4. I did not find versions 6, 7 or 8 so 5 is probably the latest. I've seen no posted link to ufr5 but anyone who can't figure it out after seeing Spiril's post probably shouldn't be using unofficial betas anyway.

Been trying out ufr5 and it works quite well
Issues i've noticed so far are auto update does not work and I also get occasional bot freezing which requires a manual reset to complete downloads this is on Windows 10 x64 machine

EDIT : Reset hanging bots is set to 60 seconds - reduced it to 30 in advanced tweaks as that is the lowest option needs to be lower IMO

Also noticed status is not being remembered in most cases after closing and reopening NL

Another thing I still notice in this beta (5) is the frequent pausing of the downloads to to "writing to storage device". Writing of downloaded files takes place to a SSD (unpacking to a HD on SATA 6) so that shouldn't be a problem. Downloading takes place at a maximum of 200 Mbs, mostly less, while with other downloadsites I get up to 730 Mbs. This was also happening in V7. Not from my start some 8 years ago, but the last 2 or 3 years.

I don't know if this is a flaw in NL. I am quite sure it isn't a setting. F.i. I have not set a max download speed. Is this a known issue and does anyone know a resolution?

The only solution I ever found for the pause while writing to storage device was to enable the Postpone RAR Unpacking while downloading option
None of the exclude processes or directory options in my AV ever worked and I run 5 Samsung 860 Evo 250GB SSD's in raid 5

I wasn't really clear about reading back my posts, It's ufr5 version.
But still alot off people don't know of this version can be downloaded
