Starting in early 2013 or so, Usenet posters began to obfuscate filenames. So instead of seeing a set of files like this in your NZB files or newsgroups: Some-File.r00 Some-File.r01 Some-File.r02 Some-File.par2 …you now might see something like this instead: 1567849.r00 1567849.r01 1567849.r02 1567849.par2 Nov 21, 2017 · Newshosting is a Usenet provider with fast servers in the United States and Europe.

I currently have Newshosting and am seeing a lot of incomplete files on things less than 2 months old. Is there a better alternative for me? I see that Newhosting is based on Omicron services so I imagine that anyone else using Omicron would have the same trouble.

Without going into technical detail of how usenet works (parts, binaries and pieces!), like downloading from occasionally you can download ‘incomplete’ files, the par system (also known as par2 or par3) enable the application to ‘repair’ the incomplete files based on information that it has saved, these are very useful and most applications you can set to download pars “if required”.
