    Usenet, anyone else having problems with missing articles?!

    Is it just me, or does it seem that a lot of stuff is incomplete and missing these days. I recently tried to grab a few old films and games as back ups of course but half of them are incomplete and unable to be repaired. Find it really weird, as newsdeamon advertise 1265+ days retention, astraweb 1264 days.

    Starting to get really annoying now

    I often get games missing on news demon, keep going back to my payg astraweb account which mostly seems fine. Personally, I don't go for much older than 500 days, just out of old habit

    Im was having the same problem m8 with grabit and astraweb

    Someone recommended Sabnzb instead of grabit and it kind of sorted all my problems !!! I also use 7zip instead of winrar because it handles large files much better, and I dont get CRC errors with large BR files.

    A lot of it depends on the providers but there are more and more DMCA takedowns being followed up these days, even on the older stuff. Looks like the fookers are running out of people to piss off so hitting usenet harder now.

    Like Vector I think the problem can be with take downs.

    When I was grabbing Boardwalk Empire Season 2 I had to get it within the first couple of days otherwise is was gone and I had to resort to rapidshare.
