active download window not cleaning itself & status bar

Postby RankoSaotome » Fri Feb 16, 2018 10:34 pm

Hello.

I have 2 Questions.

1. active download window not cleaning itself:
Since some time (I guess it is since RC4, but maybe I just changed the wrong option?) I see, that the completely downloaded files are not disappearing from the 'active download' window.
Which button/option is there to let NBP clean itself again?

2. Status bar colors in active download window:
Where can i see what the different colors of the stausbar in the 'active download' window want to say?
Blue seems to say 'download complete'.
Sometimes I see white, but NBP tells me, that it did download (in example) 1,29GB of 1,29GB. So it should be (almost) complete. Why is that download not blue?

Sometimes I see NBP showing blue status bar, then after some time it goes to white to create a yellow bar for PAR, when its ready I see blue again.
So with some downloads I thought NBP would be ready (blue), then I wanted to manually remove the download from the active download window (see above my problem with the not self cleanng 'active download window').
But just before I pressed the button to delete it, NBP startet to PAR (white with increasing yellow bar).
When can I be sure NBP has everything I need?


Right now I am using NBP 6.80RC4 B5038 and I did disable unRAR, because I dont want NBP to unrar/unzip the downloaded packages.
Please excuse my typos. I am not native english speaking.

Do you have autopar enabled?

I'd upgrade to RC5 too.

Hello.

Yes AutoPar is enabled.

I did not see that RC5 was out.
Now I updated.

Any comment on the statusbar color-question?
I forgot to mention, that I even see grey status bar (31,9MB/31,9MB).

I'd look in the logs. It sounds like your unrar and/or repairs are failing. For the most part the downloads should be blue, yellow then green before removal. If you see them cycling through the colors it means Newsbin is trying over and over to repair and unrar.
