  1. There’s a similar though more complicated way of doing the same thing over the eDonkey network for files that you can’t find on Bittorrent. Rebuilding the .met file using an external utility is necessary.

  2. Instead of using lossy “repair” methods like these, it makes a lot more sense to find a perfect copy of the file on the Bittorrent network, start the download briefly, then stop the download, replace the target file with the corrupted file (renaming to the target filename if necessary) and finally restart the download one final time. Since the corrupted file will likely be mostly complete and only corrupted for small sections, the download will pick up at a high percentage and finish quickly, ultimately providing a perfect copy of the file.
