Folks,
I've been sharing the Zeppelin torrent below for months without any problems:

Led Zeppelin 1977-05-21 Houston "The Dragon Snake" EVSD (FLAC)

http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/showthread.php?t=9527&highlight=zeppelin

Now out the the blue Vuze is showing an error that says "Data Missing", but I certainly never changed or deleted any of the files and they're all where they should be.

I'm using XP Pro with Vuze.

This is the only error of this type for any of my TTD torrents, but some torrents from other trackers are now showing this same error as well. We had a power outage last night because of the tropical storm, but that's happened before without any issues. The storm itself was pretty weak by the time it got here; just strong winds, but I don't think there was even any lightning.

Any ideas on what's going on here? I'd like to get back to sharing these again.


Thanks,

KM

Have you tried verifying the files using the fingerprints or checksums?

How do I do that with an ffp.txt file?

I've only ever dealt with md5s before.


Thanks,

Trader's Little Helper can verify an ffp.txt file, same process as an md5.
