Grabit does not repair and extract.....

Postby Insert coin » Wed Nov 24, 2010 11:48 am

Hi all, this is my first message..... :wink:

I have been using grabit for several years to download repair and extract
all of the files i get from usenet. It has always repaired and extracted every file
fine (except for the occasional time i would have to do it manually) until the last 2-3 months
it has completely stopped repairing and extracting all files.All of the settings are the same and i have
not changed anything on my pc. does anyone know why it completely stopped repairong and extracting
all files? also is there anything i can do to fix this? and finally are there any other free programs like grabit
they i can download and see if they work properly.

Thanks! :wink:

Another option is to use AutoUnpack. It's not a newsreader, but it can be used with any newsreader to provide/improve the process of automatic repair and unpacking of downloads. It will monitor your download folder for Pars and Rars and repair/unpack the downloads as necessary.

If you want to continue using grabit, I would suggest uninstalling the app and re-installing it - that generally fixes most strange issues like this on a PC. You might also want to give NZB-O-Matic a try, it's more light weight than Grabit and is great if you need something fast - it's PC only

Cheers
