Thread: Failed files in Newsbin pro

  1. #1
    So I just started with newsgroups and everything is great speed wise, I signed up with newshosting and now I have a bit of a problem. Of 800 files downloaded with newsbin pro I get ~80 failed files. Under status they say signature match?? Can anyone clue me in here?

    when that happens to me I keep downloading them. Just select them all and hit enter to download them again. It worked for me in the past.

    NBP keeps track of all downloaded files in a 'signature' list based on a certain amount of the beginning of each file.
    If NBP sees it is downloading a file that is already in the signature list, it cancels the download and moves on to the next file in your download list.

    This is a fantastic feature for those who's news service has a download cap, since it eliminates duplicates almost entirely.
    There is a possibility that it detects a dupe when it isn't - I've had it myself, particularly when downloading a file from a second source when the first one was corrupt.

    You can turn the feature off in Preferences.
