Default edonkey incomplete files

What do you do if you have downloaded 99.64% of a file? Can you use it? What do you do with it to make it possible to use?

Default incomplete file

Yes, i stayed with it for days on edonkey. I think that the entire file wasn't ever shared. It was an old t.v. show--fred flintstone--fred's birthday party. it was like somebody pulled it off at the last second just to be a butt hole.

try googling for edonkey plug-ins. I had a preview plug in for edonkey to see if the porno I was downl...er.. um... I mean, the cartoon I was downloading was any good or not. Just google for either Edonkey Plugin or for Edonkey file preview

Default preview is only 1000k

I found that preview plug-in, too, but it only shows 1000k of the entire file. How do we see the rest of our cartoons? The eDonkey faqs make it seem like incomplete files are the bane of their existence and they don't offer any help if you get stuck with one. The overnet forums are down for some reason so I can't ask there.
