    Big rar downloads seem to be corrupted all the time.

    I'll explain
    Ok so this is crazy and annoying but i'll make it short.
    Ok so i am trying to download a game for my PS2 Emulator but it seems
    every game over 1gb + is corrupted or broken. Anytime i try to extracted it
    it says it's broken or corrupted this is not with just emulator games though
    this is with several files i've tried to download. Idk if where i'm downloading from
    just stinks or there is something wrong with my pc. I would like to know if there is
    a way to fix this though,i don't want to keep putting up with this.

    The news server likely isn't that reliable. Do a free trial on GigaNews and see if the problem goes away. Many binary download programs will autorepair the rar set when the download completes. GigaNews you are much less likely to have missing blocks. The retention is very high.
