    it depends on your newsgroup provider as some have better retention than others and some seem to keep the files intact better than others

    who u with?

    also if u have probs u cud request somebody to post more pars to repair the files

    i usually re download the damaged files from a different newsgroup if possible then retry the pars

    maybe the nzbs are pointing to old posts - older they are more chance of damage

    try it with a newer posting or do a manual search of your newsgroup for the files u want

    have downloaded a game using a zbn from v3.usenet which i have subscribed to. last night i downloaded a nintendo wii game Big Brain Academy. this morning the download finished and i just clicked on the par2 files so quickpar can run and check it for missing files. quickpar has checked it and found one missing file. in the download was par2 files to repair it. quickpar said ready to recover using 33/36 recovery blocks. so i clicked recover and it done what it did it got to 100% then it said savid to disk and then it poped up faild to repair. im just wondering what do i do now. have i done something wrong. please help me im finding it soo frustrating.




    hi again. been mucking about so i thought i would try the repair again and this time it said reapair sucssefull. i was well chuffed. but now i have hit another problem. i have tryed to extract using winrar but it said the archive it unknown or damaged. so i came back to the webiste and went to extracting and i have read there that winrar sometimes cant extract them and it told me to download 7 zip. i did what it said but now 7 zip is saying crc failed then the file name then file is broken. ???? what does this mean i thought i was doing good but i have hit another problem ???????????// please help asap

    p.s sorry for a essay lol
