    Surprised/Amazed

    How come when I use a NZB file with Newsleecher it doesnt download the complete files? it never downloads the last 2 or 3 parts

    same files are complete when I use the NZB with grabit so nm

    Im confused now, is it that the exact same files were incomplete with NewsLeecher but complete with GrabIt.
    If so the only thing I can think of is you grabbed a post while it was going up...

    Well on my ISP server at times the file wont arrive for near 10 hours after posting where I can get at it.
    This is one of the benefits of NewsLeecher compared to GrabIt that it will show whether a file is incomplete or not...

    but if the nzb was the same, then it was pointing to the same files, and if it was the same server...

    Yes true though I was just making the point that he used NewsLeecher first and then GrabIt later and may have been at that moment of arriving as nothing else I can think of would explain this...

    A bit of topic, I used to use newleecher where I paid up for a year then never renewed and software was working for a few years then suddenly stopped. Tried contacting the support who were not helpful. Tried Newsbin and although not as simple to use at first got my head around it and having been using since no problems working using same provider TweakNews. Good thing about it is the you pay for it only once and get free lifetime upgrades. Maybe worth a punt?

    You do realise that this thread is almost a decade old, right?
