Hello

Menu -> Edit -> Properties -> Servers -> Retries

How high should the ServerRetries-count be? Thank you.
It was 30.
I changed it to 3.

Recently I saw that in 3 days the Astraweb-server used 70 GB till void (Pay-by-Download).
My download-object was 8 mkv-files .. at most about less than 10 GB total.
I think the reasons of the wastage is the "Servers -> Retries" and uncomplete blocks .. because of DMCA Takedown ..?!

BTW .. SABnzbd has no server-retries-count.

"No such article" is not recoverable error, thus retries don't apply here.

But there is an option "retry failed tasks every x minutes" in properties->tasks, you can also edit recoverable errors in the same properties tab.

But in any case it should not be reason for significant additional bandwidth consumed.

Did you check the bandwidth counters in the workspace, the second "servers" pane? You can reset the counters in the server context menu->advanced, or for all servers through the program tasks menu.

60GB cannot just disappear, maybe to contact astraweb to check whether your account got hacked.
