ok I'm working with the news server support because there are tons of archives that are not that old (<900 days) and they're all broken, corrupt or otherwise unrepairable.

Do you offer your own News Servers as part of a subscription process? I may dump Giganews if there's essentially no healthy files

Thanks. I thought with default settings, it would just use whatever (max) pipe I had on my connection but I had to "enable" the limiter, then set it in the range of my connection.

Re: Demo of Usenetic

Also, why would Usenetic suggest the # of Blocks Required, show that the selected files includes Blocks found as greater than the Blocks required, attempt a repair then report "Not enough blocks to repair archive"?

Re: Demo of Usenetic

The Archives come in but all the parts are broken. I have yet to download a complete archive.

Why does it say I need more repair files when Usenetic reports there are more than enough?

Re: Demo of Usenetic

So there's no limit on the size of a demo download then?
