Workflow Improvment Recommendation Needed

Postby jimerb » Thu Dec 05, 2019 9:29 pm

I'm trying to fully take advantage of a 1TB SSD card that I have locally on the workstation that I run Newsbin on.

My workflow is:
1) Pick files from internet search
2) "Download to existing Folder" (ON A REMOTE HIGH SPEED NAS)
3) Create a new folder under an existing folder like:
Photos of Nature\ Mountains

Result All the chunks download onto the SSD locally but the rar's; pars and final extract all start going to the NAS.

What I want to do is get all steps except the final unrar to stay on the SSD. I still want the ability to target the ending unrar to a folder onto the NAS during the download process.

My unrar folder setting right now is blank.

Possible?

I'd set the download folder to the local SSD. So the rars land on the SSD.

In the options, I'd add an unrar path and set it to

"X:\Unrar\$(LASTPATH)\" (the first part needs to match your drive setup)
or

"\\NAS\Drive\Unrar\$(LASTPATH)\"

The important part is "$(LASTPATH)" it tells Newsbin to use the last segment of the download path as the source for a new segment during unrar.

So if you download to:

"C:\Nature\ Mountains\"

It'll unrar to

"X:\Unrar\Mountains\"

By controlling the download path, you can automatically set the last segment of the unrar path.

I'm making some headway with this but I think I'm perhaps missing a variable or something. My unrars are missing a folder in the target location.


My nas layout:

\\NasDrive\NewsbinFiles\Nature\Mountains
\\NasDrive\NewsbinFiles\Nature\Rivers
\\NasDrive\NewsbinFiles\Cars\Trucks
\\NasDrive\NewsbinFiles\Cars\Speedcars

As mentioned, I've created my unrar path as:
\\NasDrive\NewsbinFiles\$(LASTPATH)\

If I download a file to new folder:
C:\Newsbinfiles\Nature\Mountains\NewMountain\

It winds up unraring to:
\\NasDrive\NewsbinFiles\NewMountain

How can I get it to unrar to:
\\NasDrive\NewsbinFiles\Nature\Mountains\NewMountain

The problem is you're asking for it to back up 2 segments of the path when it only backs up one. If I was using watch lists, I might give the watch list its own download path which includes the extra segment.
