    You are supposed to be able to select your preferred mirror on your https://sourceforge.net/account/ page. Complain to the SF service that you can't do that.

    Hi earnie, you can't understand.
    I can change to another mirror, in sourceforge.net site.
    I can't change mirror, in program "MinGW-5.1.4.exe", this file are download and install MinGW packages.
    I also download "w32api-3.13-mingw32-dev.tar.gz" file, from sourceforge.net site, and tried another mirrors too, the same result.
    This file "w32api-3.13-mingw32-dev.tar.gz", not correct created or uploaded to server.

    > Hi earnie, you can't understand.

    I suspect there may be some misunderstanding on both sides.

    > I can change to another mirror, in sourceforge.net site.

    When you download manually, from the project `files' page? Yes, you can do that by clicking the `select an alternative mirror' link on the download dialogue page.

    > I can't change mirror, in program "MinGW-5.1.4.exe", this file are
    > download and install MinGW packages.

    Not IN that application, no, but you can preset a preferred mirror in your SF account preferences, (login, and go to `Account -> Preferences -> Change default mirror'), and the application will then use it. The problem Earnie has likely encountered is that the SF gnomes have, yet again, managed to break the selection pop-up, such that the only selection offered is `auto'. (If you see the same, please file a support request with SF -- not with us -- to complain; the more users who the report the issue, the more likely it is that they will give it priority attention).

    > Chris, can you please check this one?

    If some mirrors have corrupt copies, there isn't a lot Chris can do about it. The master copy he uploaded is fine, as is every copy I've downloaded recently, from mirrors in France, United Kingdom and Ireland.

    Then I think we're done with this ticket. Mirror copies are a function between SF and the Mirror server.

    File a report with SF directly. This project cannot change a broken mirror.
