Unable to download headers from 3 providers

Postby theBooda » Wed Jul 15, 2020 6:35 pm

Hello,

I am all of a sudden (well for the last week or so) unable to download headers from Astraweb - Newshosting - UsenetServer.

I had about 20gb of headers from about a month ago and for the last week I keep getting this error:

[07/15 17:25:01] ERROR Downloader: Protocol Exception Group: Unable to open header input file: alt.binaries.sounds.lossless.blues
On all three providers.
It appears as if the headers are beginning to download then it resets to zero.

I deleted all the headers and did a reinstall of NewsBin.

Any ideas?
Thanks!

It suggests no headers downloaded. Are you sure the group actually has content? Might try right click "Download all headers" and see what happens.

Hello,

Yes, I should have copied more than the one line. It is happening to all groups on all three providers. I do select download all headers. Some acutally look like they are starting to download headers like it used to do it show up to 400K headers and then drop down to zero. That is only on a select few. Here is a larger list:

Nothing has changed other than time... I used to grab the headers when I needed to obtain graphics from posts since the search leaves them out. NZBs work fine and grabbing posts from the Search window works fine...

What would keep the headers from downloading? This is strange...

So Sorry to have bothered you. This was a wonderful Windoze problem. There was an update waiting. I applied the windows update and the headers download as they should.

Thanks for anytime (hopefully not a lot) spent thinking about this.

I miss my windows 7. Still can't acclimate to this 10 crap.
