Is current WD download bad?
« on: August 05, 2022, 02:53:22 PM »
There are some reports on the WD forum which suggest the 4th July WD installer is corrupt. Has any one here had issues with it?

I tried earlier today to install for purpose of testing for a question and I had it give "File Corrupted" error and install failed. I downloaded three times.

Good to know, I looked at the current download and was concerned that it was significantly smaller than previous files and as I said some others have issues with it.

Just looked at the downloads and there is a new one today 5th July which looks normal size so hopefully is OK. I made an opps there. Anyway today 6th August there is a version from the 5th August which is 206mb so hopefully that one is OK.

Hi all

I downloaded the latest update and unzipped it (580mb) installed it and no problems so far.
Strange that..

Interesting. The download that fail3d on me was an install executable, not a zip file.
