NZB Downlod Folders

Postby drewjbx1 » Mon Apr 08, 2019 1:24 pm

I recently reinstalled windows and grabbed the latest copy of newsbin, noticed a couple of obvious changes like loaded NBZ's now get put into DATA folder and get purged after a couple of days. Then most importantly I cannot get NZB's to download files into their own specific folder named from the NZB file. Instead all files get downloaded into 1 folder and creates a huge mess if a lot is being downloaded. Not sure what I'm missing....

Running 6.81 - 5080
AutoPar is disabled.

Settings -
Main Download Folder:
E:\Downloads\

Download folder for downloads from NZB Files:
E:\Downloads\$(NZBFILE)\

Feed the downloads directly to the download list and see if that changes. Modern NZB's work best if fed directly.

Download folder for downloads from NZB Files:
E:\Downloads\$(NZBFILE)\


As long as you have this, download to folder should work. You can see the download folder in the download list. If you load to post list and use something like "download to new folder" this bypasses the NZB Download path. If you're using NZB Autoload, which it sounds like, make sure the download path in the NZB Autoload also includes NZBFile.

Yes that was it... the nzb autoload needs to have the path E:\Downloads\$(NZBFILE) as well. Thanks for the info! All is working now. So for anyone needing this info here is settings..

Setup - Basic Settings
Main Download Folder:
X:\Downloads\

Download folder for downloads from NZB Files:
X:\Downloads\$(NZBFILE)\

NZB Options-> Properties
Download Folder:
X:\Downloads\$(NZBFILE)\
