Dear everyone,

You see when a peer is downloading a block, the uploader of the bolck may depart the networks anytime. So it is very likely that a peer have some partially downloaded blocks. How peers deal with these blocks? Do they ask other peers to upload these block based on what they have? Or just drop these blocks?

Many Thanks.
