Odd unrar behavior

Postby luezuve » Thu Nov 25, 2021 8:16 am

I am downloading a UHD blu-ray and some of the folders unrar incorrectly.

Edit Image Removed...Saved a copy


In the left panel is newsbin's unrar. In the right panel is winrar's unrar with the correct files. Same folders unrared from the same files using 6.90RC5.

Thank you.

The latest. 6.90rc5. It’s really bizarre. It’s adding the -(0001) to files that aren’t duplicated and some files are named totally wrong.

Are you unraring to the same folder you're downloading to? How about changing the unrar folder to something other than the download folder?

You can set the unrar folder in the main options.

Like:
<Some path>\Decode\$(NZBFILE)\

Then try again.

You can email me the NZB to ts @ newsbin dot com to try it.

I’ve tried different folders and different drives. I don’t have the nzb anymore but I’ll see if I can get it for you.

Typically NZB's put into Newsbin get stored temporarily in the NZB's folder in the data folder. You can get at the data folder from the main options.

I’ve tried different folders and different drives.


This doesn't have anything to do with specific drives but it might depend on whether you're downloading and unraring into the SAME folder or downloading and unraring into DIFFERENT folder.

For example, if you have the download path set to

"Z:\Download\"

and have no unrar path set, it'll download and unrar into that path.

On the other hand if you have the download path set to:

"Z:\Download\"

and the unrar path set to

"Z:\UnRAR\".

It'll unrar from "Download" to "UnRAR". This gives you the cleanest unrar. When you download and unrar to the same folder. Newsbin uses a temporary folder to unrar into and copies the files out to the main download folder after the unrar. Because sometimes the contents of the RAR file have the same names as the RAR's themselves.
