[Newsgroups] Missing r.01 thru r.09 files

Lately I have run across posts where the d/l starts at .10 and Im not 100% clear on how to fix it?

Thanks in advance for any help

Sounds like you need a new newsgroup client.

I've seen this too but my experience is that they download just fine. 2-3 times I've used NZBs to load files and they each started at .10

I use Newsbin Pro as my app and it downloads them & I see it renames them to a correct pattern of "filename.r01", etc.

It may be something in the way the files are uploaded or the NZBs are processed. I assume it's to confuse the copyright folks.

-example of a file that loaded in client-

0b90e64d79ff0850ccb86972b0999955.10

result was filename.r01

The file names are obfuscated... you need to download all files along with at least one PAR. file.

When your download is complete use QuickPar or some other PAR utility against the PAR file... when you run QuickPar it will rename the files to their proper RAR filename..

Then you can unRar.
