Unable to download files over 1 year old

Postby thndroad » Thu Sep 17, 2020 1:24 pm

I am using Newsbin 6.81 build 5080, and Giganews as the provider. I can search and see the files, but when I try to download anything over 1 year, I get ERROR news server error, no such article.

Is this a function of Giganews or Newsbin? If I can see the file there, shouldn't I be able to access it, it seems to be at a year limit I can't download, wasnt sure if this is a Newsbin setting for Giganews. THANKS in advance.

If the errors are "430" errors then it's from Giganews. It indicates that Giganews deleted the files from their server.
