How to download using the same nzb twice (or more)?

Postby Steve1221 » Tue Apr 02, 2019 7:34 am

I'm clearly missing something here. I'm trying to download the same file as I did yesterday using the same nzb and it just doesn't happen?

The file appears in the list window and then a second later vanishes! No error, no indication as to why?

Can someone, please, tell what I'm doing wrong!!!

Thanks.

It's designed to avoid duplicate downloads. In the options, under advanced, you can disable the duplicate detector.

It'll never re-download files that still exist on disk. It checks to make sure it's the same content so it's not fooled by having the same filename. Meaning two different files with the same name will still both download.

Not sure why you want to, but if you go to your failed files tab, you should find your download there and be able to just right click and select "download bypass filter" or something to that affect.
