I doubt your file is corrupted. If I'm not completely wrong, bit torrent redownloads corrupted parts.

You can't extract the file yet cause you don't have the password, so maybe that's the reason why you get this error.

Yeah, it asks for a password and when i press ok it gives me the error message wrong password. Sorry mate but I think it might be corrupt, try running bittorent again to see if it helps, I never had a corrupt file when I download something with bittorent.

Maybe you could try rebooting your computer, I had trouble with corrupt rar files sometimes and rebooting helped.

Sounds like a corrupted file to me. Check if you file is this big:

Size: 1,65 GB (1.772.677.978 bytes) Size on HD: 1,65 GB (1.772.679.168 bytes)

If your file isn't that size it is most likely corrupted, but if it isn't it still could well be corrupted.

You might want to try and redownload it from this unofficial FTP provided by rossdagley: ftp://fh:0%2E65@212.42.16.114/forgottenhope0.65.rar

exactly

let BT run over it again, there is also somewhere a program that checks integrity of torrents

maybe reinstalling winrar will also help

The fact is that i redownloaded the bt-file, rewriting the file i had d/led yet. Azureus checked the file (as it does whenever Azureus starts with every file) and the program assumed the file beeing d/led (then it appeared in my upload list). The program didnt find anything wrong.

The size of the file is ok.

Thx for the help. I ll try the ftp.

Can the ftp file be resumed?
