    i was downloading pro evolution soccer 6 with grabit and it took 3hours to download. there should be 27 rar files and a couple of pars however when i went into my download folder there was only one par file. The funny thing is the par file is only 67kb.Does anyone have any idea whats wrong this is the first time that has happened to me.

    i grabbed a nab from merlins-portal the other day and it didnt have any par2 files and the rars were corrupt. I had to manually find the par2 files and create a nzb for it....so yeh sometimes it happens

    sorry i didnt make it clear enough [​IMG] no rars downloaded, the only thing in the folder was the stupid par file :'( its really weird grabit was acting if it was downloading the rar files but where the hell are they. there was no release info but the file was called Ps2ProEvo6[01/36] - (Ps2) Pro Evolution Soccer 6 - PAL - ENGLISH (Online Fix With DNAS !!!)....

    Could be that you were downloading old files. Don't know which server you're using but the average server holds data up to 30 days or something. If you're downloading older files, sometime Grabit will act like it's downloading, only to find out the files aren't there any more...
