Why is newsbin adding a txt file to my urared archives?

Postby mednzb » Sat Apr 08, 2023 4:18 pm

At least since 6.90 when newsbim unrars an archive I have downloaded from an nzb that is obfuscated I get a a txt file that just has the name of file inside that newsbin just adds why is it doing that and how do I turn it off?

I'd suggest pulling the rars out of the recycle bin and see if you see that text file inside the rars.

By default Newsbin doesn't touch the contents of the unrar.

I tried it with an archive that gave me that little text file I disabled autorar and used winrar and got no txt file

You can email it to ts@newsbin.com. You can't send it through the forum.

Got the NZB. I'll give it a try when Newsbin is running again.

The txt file is inside the NZB so, Newsbin is saving it properly. It has some encoded data in it. I'm guessing it's the real filename but I haven't decoded it yet.

It's not listed as a text file. That's why the subject filters won't block ut.

I think I have figured out what is causing this issue it is not a problem in newsbin it is in the way the nzb site is generating the nzb file.

Yep. As I said, there's an file in the NZB that isn't a RAR or PAR. Some meta-data.
