nb2 file stays not renamed after download is complete

Postby RayMark » Sun Jul 10, 2011 11:06 pm

After download is complete, the downloaded files are named as:

subject_filename.fileextension_yEnc.nb2

instead of

filename.fileextension

After renaming manually, the files are fine.

As far as I can tell, this happens with larger files only, for example when a single file is about 700 MB (about 550 sections/segments/parts(whatever you call them)).
Smaller files, such as rar parts, are renamed correctly.

I don't have MemCacheLimit set to anything, possibly setting it to a larger value would help, not tested.
But I think it is a bug anyway.
No big deal, because when files are so large, their number is usually quite small, therefore easy to rename manually.

Typically this means the file hasn't completed yet. You could try right click assemble incompletes on it too. If not that then I'd say something is blocking the rename. I have a bunch of 500 meg files on my test server that download and rename properly.

The file is downloaded and no longer in the download list, I cannot assemble incompletes or anything.

For several of such files I downloaded also a different post with rars and par2s.
Comparison showed that the files were identical, so they certainly are complete.


Maybe 500 MB is not large enough?
The smallest file with such a problem I came across was 673 MB (705,961,988 bytes).
Others were larger.


Also, yEnc is not important, some of those files were yEnc, others were not.

Disabling AutoPar fixed similar problems for me.
