Hmm, look for 5219 and/or 5270, I think these two are quite similar to 5231.

Couldn't you check where in the file is the error (WinRAR tells you that IIRC, rar on Linux definately does), and redownload only that part? That's what I do.

A feeling tells me this is (only?) possible on *nix, I'd like to know how to do that too :)

Unless the winrar command line lets you do it in windows... Why do the best things have to be on *nix?! :)

Not sure of how the archive is rarred, but maybe ppc_digger is thinking
it is rarred in 50 or 100 mb chunks.
That's usually the best option when rarring big files for that reason.
Downloading one chunk would save bandwidth for both parties if and
when corruption occurs.

Hi
This should go in corrupt files on the private server where there is a topic for corrupt betas.

yes, that's right. You could extract it, but you can't mount it

I create a duplicate of the original, then cut it a little before the corrupted part (on *NIX I use dd, but I'm sure Windows has something similar, otherwise one could use Cygwin, which has dd). Then I tell my FTP client to resume downloading, I download a little, then I copy the rest of the file from the original.

You know, that got me thinking. Wouldn't it be easy to make all the files on the FTP available through a private bittorrent tracker? That way, you would be guaranteed you won't get a corrupted file (as bittorrent automatically discards bad parts and redownloads them), and other people could help seeding (I know I will).

This has been suggested before and decided upon as no since we will not have enough seeders. Its already been said by many that they will not seed. Its not difficult to redownload a file if its corrupt.

AFAIK, BT has already been discussed as a possible solution (and discarded?).
