@hoddey Use QuickPAR instead. Do what I said in my previous post, wait for QuickPAR to finish scanning the files, and you should get a screen saying something like this: the "Repair not Needed" might say "Repair required" or "Need xx more Blocks" If "Repair Required, just click the repair button and wait. If "Need xx more Blocks" then you're downloaded files have too many blocks missing to repair. You either need to download more PARs or re-download some incomplete RARs and hope that they are complete. @Sumone157 depends. Using Newsgroups to talk or Upload/Download material which you own the copyright to is not illegal. Transfer of copyrighted material is illegal, just like P2P, torrents, IRC etc.
