Demo of Usenetic

Hi, I'm new to Usenetic and just have the demo. I found some posts and began downloading but they pause after about 60% through. Is the demo throttling bit count or something? Trying to understand why I can't complete the download of binaries that are only 260MB total.

thanks

Maybe they no longer exists on your news server?

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

It is from Aug of 2018 so you're probably right it's just everything but the pars came in and just is holding at 66% for the first of a few Pars.

No there is no limitation on the trail version at all.

Try some other recently posted files and see how it goes.

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?

Most likely the files are no longer on disk, but I can't tell without seeing the logfile.

In your download folder.

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"?
