Trouble downloading tracks4oz

Is anyone else having trouble downloading Tracks 4 Australia? I have had four goes now and each time it downloads 20.1mb out of the total 38.0mb and then finishes. The .exe file is still created but when I try to run it to install it says files are corrupted.

Is there any other source for this data?

Cheers

It took me many tries over several days to get it to download, and I can't recall if I ended up using an alternative site. It's a pain in the bum, but the software has its uses.
It will eventually download. Actually, I think I started it in the morning 3 days in a row, and on the 3rd day it completed successfully. Wierd.

An other thing to try is using something like Wget (available on Windows, Mac & Linux - free) to do the download for you. It has a continue function that if your download stops, it can be restarted from that point onwards.

Wget -c http://blah.blah.blah

Most ISP use FTP caches. If somebody downloads it and then terminates the download part way thru the FTP server will often deliver a partial file.

Generally, wait 24 hours and try again
