I thought so too, however with a font supporting japanese characters I have no trouble. When running with locale as japanese, PD was unable to write files to harddisk. If I set it to en_US, it is able to write as well as display, and I have no idea why. This could just be on my debian server though, as on my desktop I still use ja_JP, although that has other problems.

I had a file (4GB T.T) that finished downloading just a few minutes ago, and had the power went off while it was converting (to file), now when the computer started after that, the download was at 99% and wasn't downloading any longer, and when tried to convert it to file, it only had 3.88GB, what should I do now to fix this?, I don't want to download the file again T.T

Burning questions.

1. Has PD development stalled for good?

2. Are there any scripts or plugins that allow for triggers?

Thank-you, it worked! ^_^

Does anybody know what's that "Partial Download" does and what are those counts?

Uh I'm having a download code error 2 now as well, but I'm using Windows and I've never had such a problem before.

I've downloaded lots of files dvd images before, all with Japanese characters, and even files with the percent sign as well. Why would this one file not working out?

I only had this happen in linux and after moving my linux unity to windows. It seems to be caused by PD not being able to write to disk. Either hardspace, character encoding, or permissions are the most likely culprits. I still haven't found a proper fix for it yet though. Check your space/permissions/encoding and see if that changes anything. PD needs a 'download as' function to give it a different name, but that defeats the purpose of P2P really.

I tend to get similar errors on Share. If you run Share on a virtual machine, the cache must be on a fat32 or ntfs partition, not ext2/ext3/ext4.

noobish question, but how long till I actually get to start downloading files? It's been up for almost two days just downloading to the unity... but then the unity size hasn't changed yet and it's still downloading.

Just wanting to make sure if I did anything wrong. Thanks!

I moved some files out of the unity folder (to check if they are the unity cache of one of my downloads, so I would know if I can delete them) and found out that one of them was of one download, and that download entry was at 0% (as expected). I placed them back and the download entry was still at 0%, is there any way to fix this? (I still have the unity cache file)

Next time when I do the moving operation, what should I do to avoid this?

You shouldn't mess with the unity folder at all.

In that case you STILL shouldn't mess with it. The proper way to delete things from your unity folder is to change the settings for the unity size in you options. If you run out of space, set the max unity size smaller and it will automatically delete the oldest things from the folder for you.

Just found a way you can safely test if those cache files to see if they are of your downloads, or just some random files downloaded by PD, firstly this is what you need to do:

First, back-up all the files in the unity folder that are less than 10MB (just to be sure), after that, back-up the PD folder (if you have the unity folder in a sub-folder, don't archive it with the rest of the PD folder!), and move the unity file that you suspect that isn't one of your downloads.

Hope it helps

I'm going to repeat this for the third time.
Don't mess with the unity folder.

No buts. No excuses. If you have too small of a harddrive, you're not qualified to use PD. It's that simple. PD was created with assumption that people now have bigger harddrives. "I can't afford another HD now." is not a valid excuse here. Software minimum requirements specifies minimum of 40GB of free space for unity.

How does the unity auto-deletion work? I'm convinced part of my download of a 5gb DVDISO is corrupted so I can't convert the 100% download into a working file (error 2).

Also, is there any significant advantage to having a larger unity? I've increased mine to 75gb but filled it much quicker than anticipated.

Above a certain size (20 GB, I think) there isn't too much benefit to having a larger unity file.

The only exception is if you are trying to download files all at once that total a larger size than your max unity size, in which case you have to either download them one by one or increase the size (yes, I did download more than 20 GB of files at once one time...)

The other benefit is that with a larger unity you are a better "source" for other clients to connect to to download from. So for example say you're interested in "touhou doujinshi" and you have 80 GB of it in your unity file, you're pretty much going to have a very easy time finding and downloading anything having to do with touhou doujinshi. But your upload speed is really more of a bottleneck than anything else. Also if your unity folder is filled with things that are autodownloaded then you have no idea what kind of stuff you might benefit from having a large unity folder of.
So basically what I'm saying is the only reason to have a unity folder larger than 20-30 GB is if you are actually downloading more than 20-30 GB of one particular type of thing. Otherwise the extra space gets filled with random junk that won't increase your download or search speeds.
