  1. I have left my original data loss (hash check) topic to see what progress or advance is done on dataloss issue but to my sorrow no progress here and no new version of BitComet is released now . I been more than a month and a half since i left all torrent activities . So tell me , What hav I missed and is There any new good news yet? Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi, As you see the title , I have CometBird version 3.6.13 and Windows Xp SP2 updated installed on my system . I have many websites as open tabs on CometBird , every time I exit from CometBird , I have to save those tabs as CometBird asked before exiting. I was fool enough not to Bookmark those tabs (websites) . So Yesterday My system crashed after sudden Power failure , when I Started my system again , Windows did a Check Disk Scan , during which it showed two files (with *.js extension) were corrupted , one was left and other file was trancated by Windows , there were even some files saved as lost chains in Windows but I don't know the location . Any way when I launched CometBird again , All my open tabs disappeared and only CometBird homepage tab is open . So I searched for ways to get the open tabs back . I tried windows System Restore but I can't get back to that earlier CometBird state. I noted in error console (first time, not recent log) that some restore file with .js extension get corrupted . I even searched for files with .js extensions in CometBird folder and found "sessionstore.js" but it is 1 KB in size and contains no usefull information . Now I am planing to use some data restore software but I am not clear which files to look for and restore . So I need help here. Kindly post all possible solutions .
  3. Thank to your replies and help Guys . kluelos give too much detail on port , which is pretty much waste of your thoughts and time but I appretiate it. I am also studying networking. Now kindly tell me clearly which version i use 1.22 or 1.26. First I want to do is to uninstall version 1.25 , delete all ports regarding bitcomet in firewall . Then I am going to install your described version . Definitely I am going to save my settings via bitcomet Export option. Kindly Guide me in these tasks. I also want to mention that when I previosly upgrade BitComet I modify path to BitComet folder , Although drive is already mentioned in install path. "drive:\Bitcomet" So I want to know ,which path is correct . "drive:\Bitcomet" or "drive:\Bitcomet\". And about 80 Mb issue , currently I can only manage this much free space for Bitcomet Installation drive . All my download aare scattered on other drives . I can intall Bitcomet on windows partition because of changing size of Bitcomet directory. I am using Bitcomet for a couple of years now and know a lot of things about it. I have also uploaded data more than share ratio . All I want to mention here is that I need serious help here .
  4. Dear Admin, I may post in pinned topic " Data loss issue" , but here I am posting all my BitComet Problems and issues in separate topic . I have emailed all issues to "support@bitcomet.com" on February 18' but since I receive no anwer ,so I have to post here . Data loss "hash check" issues I think started on 15 or 16 February. I am using Windows Xp Sp2 . Well here is text from my mail. I have some issues with BitComet Client , which needed to be resolved very soon. I am using version 1.25 . I understand that you will imediately advise me to upgrade to most recent version. now I will discuss about my issues . 1. My most recent problem is very serious . Few days back I was checking my 2 torrent download which are close to finish (90%+) ,even though they have couple of seeders but they were not downloading or simply a vey slow speed . So I do a "manual hash check" on first download . Believe me it turned to 0% before my eyes after hash check . So I have to start it from 0 . I "hash checked" second download but It changed to 0.5 %, Looks like the data it downloaded in that recent session is left. The solution i do is that I downloaded first torrent job fully but left the second one. Now you can tell me , what seems to be problem ,is there a virus on your side or a coding problem? tell me soon. 2. secondly , I want to update BitComet as soon as possible , but there are some issues. Before my last update(1.25) ,my hard disk partition on which BitComet is installed has more than 80 Mb free space but after upgrading to version 1.25 , free space is between 40 and 50 Mb . I want to make a backup of all my Bitcomet settings, so not a single thing is left behind . Then I want to install latest update and apply those settings. Guide me here. 3. The last thing I am concerned is with the firewall issue. There are too many ports open for Bitcoment (Tcp and Udp) . For example there are six ports (3 tcp & 3 udp) for Bitcomet .... ED2K . Apart from that there are several for just "Bitcomet" One port for "BitComet-a BitTorrent Client" and one for "emule plugin" . Now tell me , how many ports in real are needed for bitcomet to work fully ? Now that is a text book lesson for computer and networking students that too many open ports lead to trouble and bring in hackers and oher net based attacks . So give me a solution to that. Okay now I have addressed all my issues here , So I am waiting for your reply soon .
  5. You have not carefully read my first post, I clearly say that Both *.xml and *.bak file were of same size (1.something kb) and list was blank. Now if someone tell me that what is considered corrupt information in restored files ,I can edit them using notepad. Or tell me some other ways. Another thing I want to know is that which files are stored in Archive subfolder in BitComet Folder since file name are not understandable. About the backup suggestion on BitComet Server, My understanding is that our every download goes through BitComet Server and information may be stored there in form of cache or cookies . It may be possible to convert this information in form of backup file , which can only be accessed by registered users of BitComet.
  6. I did some work to recover download.xml file by using recover software , I get three files. files are round about two and half megabyte . I deleted the original download.xml (new) file and renamed recovered file to download.xml , when I start Bitcomet ,nothing changed . after that I tried two other files but no avail , I also changed *.bak file with recovered ones. these files are close to date and time when original ones get deleted . I also opened these files in notepad and they contain torrents information. Here is my suggestion to BitComet software that torrent download lists or their backup may be saved on their website and updated when a new downlaod is added so if a user lost torrent list by any accident ,he can recover it by downloading list from official website. Any member please forward my suggestion to the Admins.
  7. I use to download torrents or files from torrent collection in torrent share section in BitComet . yesterday I was getting too many files from that section and system was exhasted. my file I collected from that section needed to be changed from BC link to proper torrent link , so I waited. Suddenly BitComet crashed ,when I restart it after starting Windows , My Downloaded and Downloading files (torrents) are nomore in list. I could only see files in Torrent archive in Torrent share section . When I searched for backup files (Downloads.xml and //.bak) in BitComet folder , both are very small in size compared to backup files I saved several months back ,now if I would have saved backup file recently ,it will have very large size. I want to restore full downloads ,although data is there torrent files are still in torrent subfolder . So please tell me a way to restore full list file which can restore BitComet to its earlier state.
