Par2 stops working with corrupt par2 files
« on: January 21, 2009, 05:09:15 PM »
just wanted to mentio, that the par2 tab stops working if it imports a corrupt par2 file
those are the par2 files without any files in it.

Maybe there is a way to fix it. otherwise you have to restart alt.binz and import all other par2 files from all downloads after the stuck one again or mannually repair/unrar it.

I've noticed that too (that the par2 tab stops responding from time to time) and have pulled my hair out for ages trying to figure it out, but haven't ever been able to tie it to corrupt par2 files.  Now it makes sense.

RDL, if this you are going to be able to fix this, could you please also add the feature to save the par2 tab status/info whenever the queue is autosaved too?  If the program crashes, then all of the par2 info is lost since the last time the program was started, which is a pain if kept running for a week or more...

Many thanks!

Corrupted PAR2 files are pretty rare and I would like to see one.
