    I just tested a download, and I'm not seeing any corruption during the download process myself. In order for us to investigate this further, please provide:

    1. The full URL of one of the downloads you're seeing problems with
    2. The mirror you downloaded from
    3. The MD5 and/or SHA1 hash of the file on your computer.

    Thanks,

    sorry, I don't have *nix so I can't provide a hash.

    You can in fact provide a hash, see the page I linked too.

    Anyway, I've checked both of those downloads using both softlayer mirrors and found the hashes match for me. In other words, I don't see any corruption with the files on the mirror or during the download process.

    The hash check from your end is still valuable, however, at this point this does not appear to be an issue with SourceForge services.

    If your hashes match what we list on the site, that means that the problem is either with something you have locally, or with the files as uploaded by the project. In the latter case, it would be something that the project developers would need to address, so it should be reported to them.

    All those hashes match what we've calculated, so there isn't any problem with the download process.

    Hence, as I stated previously, that means that the problem is either with something you have locally (eg., the extraction program), or with the files as uploaded by the project. In the latter case, it would be something that the project developers would need to address, so it should be reported to them.

    Silent Data Corruption (SDC). had to reinstall windows after 2 years. the probable actual source of some of my bug reports... works fine now. (?) OS seems to have been pretty much useless. eagerly awaiting new version of spinrite to solve this problem on my 4TB disks.
