New Miro downloads being "deleted by outside source"

  • Problem

  • Solved
I am trying to download new music and every time a file completes I will go to the music tab to play it and it wont play. I will go back to downloads tab and click show file in explorer and "file was deleted by an outside source" or something to that effect. Please Help. I just downloaded the new version of Miro (problem started right before I got new version; got new version to see if it would change. It didnt.)

We've tracked down the problem and it's a magnet link rename issue that caused the item to not be moved out of the Incomplete Downloads directory.

We have a fix for this issue and there are testing builds containing just this fix available.

I'd like to encourage everyone to try them and please report back how it goes.

Windows: http://nightlies.pculture.org/data_vo...

OS X: http://nightlies.pculture.org/data_vo...

Once we get enough feedback we will be able to make a 4.0.5 release with this fix.

Yes Alison, but what if you cannot even open the file to save elsewhere, when you click on the download it dissapears. I have just uninstalled it and downloaded bittorrent, I guess if they do not fix this quickly a lot will do the same.

Hey Jed.thanks for the fix. Unfortunately due to your company's screw up you have cost me over 20 gigs of download and I only get 40 a month. Miro owes me $20
