I have 33 files that were on the list as being lost. Its gonna take me awhile to go and try to download each of them then go through all those steps to get them uploaded. I have managed to get two of them up. And I am still not certain I did it correctly. It took me quite a while just to go through all of my files to see if I had any.. My point is, isn't there another way???
sinomyn, err, what other way? I've exhausted all technical things I can at this time on the servers, so the only way is for people to reupload, and others have already uploaded a lot of files, so I dont see the issue here

I uploaded original WinRAR files for this thread, but was not able to report the thread, as it had already been reported. I uploaded 3 of the 4 files from this thread anyway, as the reply above mine had been deleted because they were copies or some such thing.

All right, dumb question from me - I don't keep the original zip/rar files, and clean out my temp download directory fairly regularly - if I have missing files individually, I don't suppose those would help?
If you rar them up in the same format (zip/rar), with exactly the same contents as the broken file (same files, same versions, no txt documents or links automatically added as advertising by a ripoff program, as we have seen a few times), then yes, that's helpful.
The reason we've said original archives only is that a lot of people were uploading a rar which included more or less files than the original - these are useless, as we copy the attachment straight from the comments to the upload post.
