    Default I need Help!!!

    For some reason I can't get anything to download correctly from Gingerscraps Store. I have tryed several times and it won't download saying that the folders are empty or can't open. Does anyone have any suggestions on why this is happening and what I can do to correct it??? Please Help!!!

    I am so sorry. This is a server error. I have the new server upgrade in the works- but want to wait until after Survivor to make the switchover.

    Basically it is a timeout issue- the connection times out before the item is fully downloaded- thus causing an incomplete download. It only happens to a small few.... but I know it is very annoying for thoese of you that are the unlucky ones!

    These are things you can try-
    Only download one thing at a time.
    example-
    download 1 element zip. Once it is totally downloaded then download 1 paper zip... etc.

    Keep trying until it works. Sometimes it will not work once- then the next try it will work.

    Let me know if nothing you try works. I can get you links another way.

    Again- I am so sorry, and please dont turn and run away!! This problem - as well as the other server issues will all be gone very soon! And then I am gonna need all the sales I can get- to pay for that fancy new server. LOL

    It happens to me too - and I've found that one at a time helps - but its slow either way - I often have to DL multiple times before it actually comes through!!

    I had a problem just yesterday and decided to DL one at a time....that worked so that's what I'll do in future. Thanks, Ginger, for clarifying this issue.
