SAB fails a lot of downloads

Post by Guffas »

So I got my self an account at tweaknews plus one of those block account, but it still fails find prober files, that does not fail donwloading........ Can I get SAB to check that all the files are there before it starts downloading? And it is not even because the files are old. Some are not more than a month old. I'm starting to get a bit crazy!

Google DMCA Removal/DMCA Takedown.

There are options in Config -> Switches -> Queue called "Abort jobs that cannot be completed" and "Check before download", but in my experience if you're on a fast connection then they're more annoying to turn on than just letting the files fail naturally.

As ALbino says: probably DMCA removals.

A perfect test: download a post that will never be DMCA-ed, for example a Ubuntu image:
