    Is it possible to get corrupted files when downloading with mirc?

    i downloaded a few albums and when I check them with the svf file I get a CRC missmatch on two songs. Does this mean that the bot is serving a corrupt file or did it get corrupted during download? I mean would it help if I redownload the same album?

    thanks Benno

    corruption can happen in a few ways when you get disconnected while downloading it is corrupted when opening ar the bot has a currupted file just try somewhere else

    Also keep in mind that if you do get a corrupt file, make sure you delete it from your download folder before you resume your download again or you will lose portions of that file if it is in rar format. If you are downloading a file from a certain bot and that bot decides to go offline and you only got half of that file, and u see another bot offering that same identical file...please again delete the prior file from your download folder or it will continue on that same file which corrupts it then. You also get files that are corrupt by packet loss. This can happen mostly with ppl on 56k or dsl and has known to affect cable users also. Just a little help.

    So if I have a partial file and want to resume it from a different bot than the originla one, it will get corrupted? even if it is the exact same file?
