I've updated to 6.90RC1 and now my downloaded files are not being sorted into folder named after the NZB file name. All was okay prior to the update.

I'm using these filters

G:\NB-Downloads\$(FILENAME)\
G:\NB-Downloads\$(NZBFILE)\
G:\NB-Downloads\$(FILENAME)\

Sometimes a new folder is created but only contains a copy of the NZB.

I'm not downloading a lot, but I'm ending up with a messy download folder.
I have used NZBs from more than one source, so I don't believe they are the problem.

I wouldn't use "$(FILENAME)" at all. I'd use "$(NZBFILE)" for all 3.

$(FILENAME) depends on being able to extract a meaningful filename from the subject and with modern posting, it might or might not work. Keep in mind if you change this, it'll only apply to new downloads. The existing downloads won't change to match it.
