Yes - strange isnt it.

I used the link, downloaded the file, while downloading it confirmed file size of 3.1GB, once complete the file size was 2GB. I didnt alter the file in any way at all.

Kaktussoft,

I asked my friend to download the file on his pc (he has better bandwidth). The first time he tried it he had the same issue - only downloaded 2GB!

Should this be reported to Dell or my river?

Hi all,

Well I thought I'd check my wife's profile (should have done this earlier). I don't seem to be able to replicate the same problem. I have accessed windows explorer and went in and out of files and folders, this would crash it on my profile, but on hers it seems okay.

So, what does this mean?
