kusamba Posted November 8, 2009 Share Posted November 8, 2009 (edited) OK, I have read similar postings, faq and the like. English is my native language. My problem is that when I close BitComet and then reopen it, my current download tasks are gone. What is in the list are two old downloads. The file downloads.xml is dated 08/03/2009. I have used BitComet several times since that date and have also upgraded to 1.15. This file has full "allow" permissions for all users. There is also a file named downloads.xml.temp that is dated 11/08/2009. Based upon what I read in response to other similar problem posts (once past the sarcasm), I checked to see if the BitComet folder was read only. ALL folders in the "program files" directory are Read Only. I tried to "uncheck" "Read Only" and it takes it OK, but when you hit "Apply" or "OK", I get a message "Do you want to apply this change to the folder only, or do you want to apply it to all subfolders and files as well?". "Apply changes to this folder only" is grayed out. The "Apply changes to this folder, subfolder and files." radio button is checked. I hit "OK" and it returns to the BitComet folder properties window. "Read Only" is "unchecked" - that seems good. I hit "OK". All appears fine. However, the BitComet folder is still read only and my problem with BitComet remains. I am running BitComet 1.15, Vista Home Premium SP2 64bit and using AVG 9.0 No firewall. My connection is through a cellular modem - 3g with speeds shown by SpeakEasy to be 1500 kbps download and 350 kbps upload. A second issue since I have your ear.... I downloaded a 72 meg file very quickly at full speed. At the same time I am downloading a large game file of 3.8 gig. The large file speed never exceeds 500 kbps. The smaller files are 1000-1200 kbps. All large files I download are relatively slow as this example. It happens day or night, any day of the week. Is there a tweak with which I am unfamiliar? Thanks in advnace for your help. k Edited November 9, 2009 by cassie Changed to an easier-to-read font style (see edit history) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
