Generally, if the file is incomplete, the size listed is smaller than the size of the complete file, but in this case, I get 765 MB which is the size of the complete file I'm trying to download. So, if file is only at 65% can you think what could cause this error?
There is a setting in many bittorrent clients which allows the application to pre-allocate the whole file size for the files. So, it will *look* like the file is complete in size, but it isn't if you can't run the checksums successfully on them (or if it doesn't say 100% in the bt client).
