File Download keeps repeating

Asked by peter on 2014-08-28

some files are being repeatedly downloaded. In the Finished Downloads window i see a file size of for example 50.2MB but transferred reads 768mb - I first started noticing this about 3-4 months ago - am currently running DC++0.843 - hasn't changed problem from previous version. Not happening on all files - may be related to a particular set of files added to my DL queue. File does not disappear from DL queue even tho it is now in DL directory and is not present in incomplete folder. Any ideas on how to fix other than wiping DL queue and starting again?

Check the state of Settings/Downloads/Queue/Keep finished files in the queue

If it's off then watch the Error column of the Queue window for these particular queue items when they're keep downloading. Also check the System Log for errors at the same time. Anything unusual message in these places might help to find out what's happening.

Can you help with this problem?
