If you are using an ISP provided Usenet provider or one of the free ones, its VERY UNLIKELY you will get a decent download of this HUGE archive.

This is massive and its unlikely a couple of terabytes will float around complete on free services.

I used the latest paid version of Alt.Binz (as well as a couple of others) to download the archive through GigaNews via the Arcade Punks provided NZB.  Each time the downloaded archive is full of errors including the Par files.  I gave up.  Currently downloading via torrent.  Should be completed in a few weeks.  Lol.
