    I've downloaded a TV show in the alt.binaries.vcd group. There is one rar file missing (r10).
    As of 2 months ago, you no longer request missing parts, you now have PAR files that do it for you. Problem is, I can't figure it out, even after reading a FAQ and manual. Can someone explain in easy steps how to do this? I have already downloaded the par files for this TV show and I also have the MIRROR.exe file.
    What do I do from here?
    When I run mirror.exe it says the missing file is .r00. AH...That's not it! It's r10!!!
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Never mind, I figured this out. Turns out for some reason the mirror program wants to change all the rar file names first, starting with r00 and then it will look for and download the missing file.
    Pretty neat actually.
