    Run a scandisk -- you probably have 30+ MB of bad sectors or lost allocation units on your hard drive/s.

    happened to me too with a verified a while ago.Didn't pay to much attention to it because I had the thing downloaded again in no time.

    But what's all that about bad sectors or lost allocation units on the hard-drive?

    If you lose part of a download, the hard drive probably still has that space marked as 'used' -- ESPECIALLY if it failed due to a crash/power outage.

    Scandisk can recover from that kind of damage by finding unallocated/unassociated pieces of files and recreates them as something.dat files in the root dir of the drive they're on.

    I think that it just restarted because of the way Kazaa handles multiple groups, not because of crashing (in which case the download would have been deleted).

    This post I just made in another similar topic has the answer.
    Kazaa Corruption Fixer --> Fix any corrupted CD image, archive, or video file you've downloaded with Kazaa.
