Huge Header Queue Despite 'Use Header Download Age Setting'

Postby insolution » Tue Jan 30, 2018 11:31 am

Platform: Newsbin 6.73 Build 4821 on Win 10 Pro

Issue: Newsbin is trying to D/L all 73,000,000 headers from alt.blah-blah.dvd (and other groups).

I have both Per Group Display Ages and Use Header Download Age set to 3 days on the groups but I still am getting this onerous download queue.

Question: How do I get the Show Headers Aging and Show New Headers settings to take effect (or fix tis issue).

I'm on a 7 Mbps link. This will take a week or more at this rate. Not to mention that my DSL line is saturated.

Any fix?

- Delete the header download,
- Clear out the "Import" Folder in the data folder.
- Right click the group "Post Storage/Use Download Age"
- Set a download age you want headers from.

Download headers normally.

After you've already started downloading headers from the group, you need to reset the range before the "download age" kicks in again.
