Recursive UnRar

Postby Terra_Cresta » Sun Oct 09, 2016 11:22 am

Hello all,

I have a scenario whereby I have content which is RARed, then RARed again (don't ask!).
I'm trying to find out if there's a way to get the auto UnRAR function to only UnRAR the outermost RARs thus leaving the underlying RARs intact... if that makes any sense.

I've noticed that using "Automatically UnRAR complete files" gives the following result... Outer RAR --> Inner RAR --> UnRARed content. This is OK because the Inner RARs aren't deleted after processing but what is very time consuming is the time it takes to (unnecessarily) UnRAR the Inner RAR.

In a nutshell, is there a way to get Auto UnRAR to only UnRAR the Outer RAR and then move on? I realise this all sounds a bit bizarre but thanks in advance for any answers - good or bad!

Thanks,
TC

There's currently no mechanism to disable the recursive unrar. I'd have to add a flag or something to prevent it.

Is this something you're willing to add?

Sure I wrote a note to myself to look into it.
