TORRENT DOWNLOADING BUGS in 6.4.4, 6.4.5 (BEING FIXED)

Postby possent » Mon Feb 06, 2017 3:24 am

Since the last update, I have been experiencing a new bug. On Windows 10.

A file will download to 100% - then go to seeding.
If I log off Frostwire and log back on, it will either still show as 100% and begin downloading all over again, or will show as 0% with filesize downloaded being correct, but still download again.

I have had one 4Gb file download 3 times over, starting it's 4th time. This happens on nearly every file now.

Hi,
I have same opinion that 6.4.5 is equally as bugged. 6.4.3 was last stable build.

Still having this issue. And now - when attempting a download - it gets through a partial download and then says it's complete. It has only downloaded a fraction of the file.

It also appears that the only source it can find is TorLock

Completely uninstalled and re-installed. The "partial download" seems to have stopped - but the re-downloading of already downloaded files still happens intermittently

are you by any chance using FrostWire from a corporate network, or a university?

We get search results from all sources.
