Decode copy (XXX)

Postby redive » Sun Jan 15, 2023 2:21 am

Why are my unrared files being put in numbered 'Decode Copy' folders instead of the main directory? Is there a way to stop this?

If there are duplicate filenames in the final destination folder, Newsbin won't do the final copy to that fold in order not to overwrite the destination files. Any file with the same filename will trigger it not to do the final copy.

You'd get the same thing if you're re-downloading the same set.

I don't particularly like "Decode Copy" but I haven't thought of another way to prevent over-writes. If each set decoded to a unique folder it wouldn't happen. Like using the NZB Filename if you're using NZB's.

What kind of sets of files are they?
