Resuming an incomplete download not working?

Postby depredador » Sun Jan 15, 2017 3:26 am

I often start a download but never get enough time to finish it by the end of the day because of the file size and my slow internet connection.

So what I do is remove the file from the download list but I would click on no when it asked if I wanted to delete partial downloads.

The next day I would then load the same NZB again and tell it download to an existing folder where it would basically pick up from where I had finished off the day before because the partial downloads where still in that folder. And yes I could see them.

Now when I try to do that it starts all over again and ignores the previously downloaded files that are sitting there.

I have no idea why this suddenly started as I haven't changed any settings and I'm using Newsbin Pro 6.72 build 4776. I tried the latest 6.73 beta to see if that would fix it and that didn't help at all. Newsbin also doesn't come up with any error messages.

Can I get some hep as to what's suddenly going wrong as this is a real pain with my slow internet connection.

Cheers

What happens if you simply exit Newsbin then restart it? It should just resume when you restart

Do the re-downloads result in a "copy(X)..." type filename for the new downloads?

Keep in mind that on restart it downloads the first chunk of the file in order to verify the existing files.

That didn't work when I restarted my PC the next day and gave it ago. I remember the only thing I recently changed was ticking the box in the "show age and not date" box in the advanced settings.

So now when I try and start again it goes to failed files because of the duplicate checker. That never used to happen either as it would just pick up from where I left off from the day before.
Any more ideas as to why it suddenly stopped working like it used to do?

Give the new 6.73RC1 a try.

Honestly this is symptoms of an older version.

I mentioned in my first post that I already tried that. Today I completely uninstalled Newsbin Pro with Revo Uninstaller Pro and then reinstalled it again and it's still happening.

I have no idea why it suddenly started after years of use and now I can't seem to fix it.

Still can't get it to work. The only difference now is when I restart the computer and then restart NB and load the NZB and download it to the folder the saved files are in it goes to failed files because of duplicate detection.

If I try ctrl + Y that doesn't help as it just starts from the beginning again. This seems similar to what I suddenly started experiencing and also doesn't have a solution https://forums.newsbin.com/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=38637

Is there any soloution to this problem seeing it never used to exist? It's been over a month since I first mentioned it here.

On a slow internet connection it is a BIG inconvenience.
