Newsbin Pro creating temp folders

Postby gregkel22 » Thu Jan 18, 2018 9:40 am


Recently, my downloads are being un-rared to temporary folders. For example, spaceman.mkv is being unrared to "m:\UnR989Df_tmp\spaceman.mkv" instead of "m:\spaceman\spaceman.mkv". This is something that just started, inexplicably, about 2-3 months ago. Obviously, it is creating havok with my file system. I can't find any switch that makes sense of this in my mind. Anyone know why this is happening to me?

Thanks guys, appreciate it!

It always unrars to a temp folder if your download and unrar folder are the same folder. It then moves the files to the final location and deletes the temp folder.

The question is why isn't the move and delete happening anymore?

One option would be to download to one folder and then unrar to a different folder. If you do that, it doesn't make the temp folders.
