Headers downloaded but not stored

Postby mojo-chan » Fri Feb 12, 2021 11:12 am

Newsbin 6.82 x64 on Windows 8.

I added a new group and downloaded all headers. Approximately 800,000 headers were downloaded, but only 10 or so were actually stored. The "Storage.db3" file is only 44k.

I have no filters. Downloading headers took about 1 minute. Drive has plenty of free space. Tried "Show all files" option.

Any ideas?

Is it a binary group? My first thought is that it's a non-binary group.

In the options windows, click "Open Data Folder" then look in the "Import" folder. See if there are still files it's importing.

800,000 is pretty much a dead group. It could be your "Storage Age" setting has thrown away all the posts because they're from before the age range the "Storage Age" will keep around.

Thanks, it was the storage age setting that was doing it. In the settings it says "delete file data older than N days" which I took to mean delete old downloaded data, not delete the old headers.
