I have NBP 6.80RC2

I have the NZB options setup with 3 folders on a drobo 5N
NBP/[incomplete]
NBP/[complete]
NBP/[watch]

I have sickbeard setup to download NZBs to NBP/[watch] then scan NBP/[complete] to post process

the trouble is that after processing, the [watch] folder gets deleted therefore sickbeard cannot save the next NZB

how do I stop the [watch] folder from being deleted?

You could stick a dummy file in there to keep it from getting deleted. Honestly though that's not how Sonarr and Newsbin should be working together.

"Black Hole" which is the mode you're using, has been deprecated in Sonarr and could go away at any time. I'd suggest you add Newsbin as a "Sab" download client, just use an API key and no SSL. Then when Sonarr sends NZB's to Newsbin it'll do it directly over the TCP connection and when the download completes Sonarr can find the unrared file over TCP too. I'd also upgrade to RC4 too. The options in Newsbin are the "Remote NZB" options.

Sickbeard can send the NZB directly too.

I'd do what I suggested and toss a dummy file in there. Make sure you're not downloading to the NZB folder. It sounds almost like your watch folder is being used for the download folder too. Download and unrar both try to clean up empty folders.

in NZB Options
NZB Watch Folder R:\[NBP]\[watch]\
Download Folder R:\[NBP]\[incomplete]\$(NZBFILE)\
Unrar folder R:\[NBP]\[complete]\

all the folders where being deleted after processing but NBP recreated the [incomplete] and [complete] folders when downloading so no problem with those

I created a [dummy.txt] file in the watch folder and that has worked

Thank You
