Got an issue with autopar and mp3's.
Maybe Linux based but I doubt it.
I have artist/album as the download selection, but when autopar runs it moves everything downloaded back to the base folder
so downloading I have
base/artist/album containing the files
after autopar runs
base/ all files
the album folder is empty.

I think there's a bug enabling and disabling servers. Clicking on the "green lock" and turning into the "red circle" doesn't actually disable the server and the reverse doesn't enable the server (it indicates that's it's disabled, but it still download files in the download list using it). Only right clicking the server selecting disable/enable from the menu actually does it.

Any files that gets repaired uses the "UnRAR" path so, if I had to guess I'd guess when the files are repaired it then sends them to the default unrar path. I'll give some a try and see what I see.

I believe you're right. You probably need to use the server options for now.

That's probably it, BUT it moves everything download to the unrar folder, not just the bits that were repaired. My files were missing the jpg's so it recreated them and moved all the flac's as well.

Yeah, any files mentioned by the PAR files get sent to the unrar path.

That's a bit draconian isn't it.
Unraring them fine, but repairing isn't unraring. It also leads to overwritten files or .1's etc as it recreates folder.jpg etc.

I'm simply telling you how it works and has worked for awhile now. Files with pars get moved to the unrar path. Either through unraring or by copying. If you don't want this then you could clear the unrar path so, it downloads and repairs to the same folder.

I already have it empty, but as I say it is defaulting to the base folder $(GOG) when repairing.

It falls upwards. First it checks the group, then the GOG then the main unrar path.
