How To Force NB To Download PAR Files?

Postby rockphantom » Tue Mar 14, 2017 11:17 am

I'm interested in downloading a 10GB set of PAR files.
I need this to fix a 160GB set of files.

Unfortunately, Newbin will only grab the first file.
The rest of of the PAR files are in pause mode.
I tried to "bypass filters" in order to force the download.
However Newsbin, won't download the PAR set for me.

Is there another way to download the par files?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank You!

1 - Hit the + button on the download and unpause all the PAR files listed.

2 - Or you could also hit the + button in the post listing and add the PARS as a group by selecting the pars inside the set.

I force a download by right clicking on the paused file(s) and clicking on "resume download" on the dropdown menu and it starts downloading straight away.

I now have the 10GB set of PAR files which is just enough to repair the rar set. Unfortunately, Multipar crashes when I attempt to repair the set, probably as a result of the massive file size (9GB of PAR FILES/160GB of RAR files).
Could someone please recommend PAR software that can properly repair this massive RAR set?

Thank You!

QuickPAR is always my goto. It just doesn't support non-US characters in the path or filenames.
