Downloaded NZBs not moved to 'loaded' folder

Postby astrax » Sun Feb 11, 2018 6:21 am

Hi, I'm using 6.80B13 and recently the loaded NZBs (from my NZB watch folder) aren't moved to the "loaded" subfolder anymore. That makes it very hard to keep track of unfinished or incomplete (for whatever reason) downloads.
I already tried deleting a lot of unnecessary, loaded NZBs from the "loaded" folder, but it doesn't help.

Also, on a regular basis, when I test and try to download an already finished and unrared NZB, it just downloads again. It should be flagged as duplicate though.
Any idea, why this might be happening?
THX!

Found the thread in the Beta forum: viewtopic.php?f=44&t=43447

OK, now I know. But the old way was much more convenient and clear, IMO. Since ATM I have an Nzbs folder within an Nzbs folder (which I guess is the current sessions NZBs? Even though they also show up in the Nzbs folder above).

But the problem of NZBs being downloaded, even though they should not, because of duplicates, persists. Should I reset my current watch folder to "...\Newsbin\Nzbs"?

You should never set any of your folders to any folder in the data folder. The NZBs folder in Newsbin is a temporary place the NZB's go which gets purged periodically as Newsbin is running.

Ok, thanks. I was just asking :)

What do you think, could be the problem of the duplicate NZBs being downloaded?

NZB's automatically fed into Newsbin either through Sonarr, watch lists or double-click, bypass the duplicate detector. If the rars are still on disk. Newsbin will re-use the rars without re-downloading.

NZB's you feed into a listing at the top, obey the duplicate detector. .

I'd keep an eye on the NZB's folder in the data folder. It serves the same purpose as the old "Loaded" folder. If you want to keep a record, you could copy them out of the data folder periodically.

But that wasn't always the case, was it? At least not when I have a NZB watch folder set up (through the options/settings menu).

So, basically, the only way to avoid downloading a duplicate NZB is manually loading them in? Or would I have to set the watch folder to "add to top..."? TBH, I find that super inconvenient and a bit confusing.

Is there a way to turn this off? Or at least a way to keep the loaded NZBs, to have an overview, if one needs to reload from it?

If you manually load an NZB, Newsbin should indicate whether it's been downloaded or not without having to send it to the download list. As long as the subject is the same. You could periodically copy the NZB's out of the NZBs folder in the data folder too to keep track of what you downloaded.
