First, you will need to get the file you want to recover. If it's a lost Shareaza download,
it will be in
Find the file you want to recover or repair, move it to another folder, such as the desktop.
You may see a small file with the same name as the file you wish to recover, except with an SD file extension. You can delete this file.
Start up Shareaza, and start a download of the same exact file.
It must be exactly the same file, because any non-matching bits will be thrown away.
Raza downloads have the SHA1 hash in the name, so it's easy to check the files match. With other downloads, you will have to be a little more careful to make sure you get the same file.
Allow the download to start and let it download a little bit.
Then, pause the download.
Copy the file name of the new download.
Delete the new download. Do not delete the new SD file!
Rename the download you want to recover to the name you copied, and move it into the
Go back to Shareaza and unpause the download.
Right click on the download, Goto Advanced, Then Advanced Edit.

Click the Assume the file 100% Complete and Reverify.
Assuming everything is okay, A small green TTH bar should move across the download. The parts that are missing (or corrupt) will be in red, and will be re-downloaded
That's all there is to it! Shareaza will now recover any file, making 100% sure it's valid and in perfect condition. Any bad sections will be re-downloaded, so you are certain the file is good.
If an box pops up saying you do not have any hash information when you click 'assume complete and reverify', then you need to let the download run a little longer while Shareaza gets the TTH or ed2k hash information. It should only take a few seconds in most cases. Just make sure the download has started, and it should work.
If the entire verify bar fills in in red, you probably selected the wrong file to download in step 2. The files can't just be about the same thing, or similar. It has to be exactly the same file. There may be several versions of one file out there - make sure you select the correct one.

12) That should start the tth bar to run accross the download
the parts missing will be filled in red
