Azureus on Mac - Error: Data File Missing

Posted on 2006-11-24
Last Modified: 2008-01-09
Yesterday I was downloading two files.  Today I opened Azureus and I get a red dead man's face icon.  

Under status both files say:
Error: Data File Missing: (Then the file)

I am seeding two files with the same error.

Has anyone seen this?

This is a very common error, including "Corrupted data" errors. What happened it your Azureus was improperly shut-downed; thus causing this error. This has happened to me many times before. The only thing I can suggest, is doing what I did; switch to BitComet. It can be found here:

Good luck!

I use bicomet on my PC.  They don't have one for mac though.  Maybe I'll just try something different on mac.  Thanks.

I'm sorry, I didn't see you were using a mac. The best in the market there is BitRocket:

Good luck!

Did you happen to move the files you were downloading or seeding to another directory or did the structure change in any way? That would explain the error your getting.

Nothing moved.  Bitrocket works though.
