Where is my Download?

Postby Name Goes Here » Tue Feb 21, 2017 10:36 pm

I inadvertently downloaded a large multipart file to an external drive that wasn't plugged in. Newsbin did not complain, but downloaded the file anyway, and showed it complete. But where is it?

Probably sitting as chunks in the chunks folder. If you fix the disk then restart the download, it should use the chunks to assemble the files.

For me, I found about 30GB unrared in the"Loaded" Folder, SUCKS reverted to version 672, and sometimes the v672 unrars in some unknown folder, I have to look for the tree size to find the files!!!!

You must have the NZB Autoload folder set to the download folder. It's a bad idea. I suggest changing it in the options. Make the NZB Autoload folder a dedicated folder.

Quade, thanks for the reply. The drive was at a different location, so I changed the download path. It re-downloaded the whole thing.

You have a couple days before the chunks automatically get purged. If you wait too long, you have to start over.
