070 B5 fails to uncompress the download sometimes

Post by ErikBrown »

Sometimes 070B5 on Windows XP fails to properly unpack the downloaded files. As a sample, after a download completed I find the follow directory in the category folder:

_FAILED_123 Maps

and in this folder I find two files:


Manually unziping the file 123Natio.zip works fine.

The email that I received for the failed download states the following:


SABnzbd has failed to download "123 Maps"

Finished at 2012-05-12 22:19:18
Downloaded 2.6 GB

Results of the job:

Stage Download

Stage Unpack

I will email the NZB file for this sample to bugs at sabnzbd.org

The solution is rather simple. The unzip delivered with SABnzbd needs upgrading.
unzip 5.52 doesn't support ZIP files over 2G (like this item).
We'll upgrade to unzip 6.0
