Indeed this is weird!
But too many files are missing. Did you keep the torrent in your app?
Try re downloading it with the latest version Admin uploaded, maybe it will be faster now that people seed! Wink

Oh, try to unrar on the pc you downloaded.
Then you'll see if the problem was during the download or the transfer! Wink

Oh my god. So the download was almost done, about 95%. Suddenly my screen froze and I couldn't do anything. I turned of the computer by holding the power button for 10 seconds. And now I can't restart! The only thing I see is a flickering stripe in the left corner. I tried several times, even safe mode doesn't work anymore. I'm going crazy!

Ok calm down.
What do you mean even safe mode doesn't work? Can you get to the Windows loading screen?

How weird is this. After trying 20 times to restart I unplugged my external hard drive and now he works again... Now let's try to download the last 5% then. Phew I just thought I lost all of my stuff Sad

Oh, that is because your PC is set to start on external drive first. And it most probably wasn't finding anything to start...
You might have to download again though...

No the computer actually started working again when I removed the hard disk. Don't know how that's possible but I'm happy he's alive again. It's downloading well, should be done in 15 minutes.
