Autoload NZB - Prevention of Moving/Deletion of NZB files?

Postby rockphantom » Mon Jun 24, 2024 1:43 pm

I've recently started using the NZB autoload format to download and rename groups of files with obfuscated names.
I've discovered that the NZBs in the autoload folder are removed after each download completes.
Is there anyway to prevent the files from being transferred to the Loaded folder?
I reverted to 6.90 from 6.91 and many of the NZBs that should be in the Loaded folder are missing.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I wanted to follow-up.

I have grabbed a series of NZBs and saved them in my main NZB folder.
I put a temporary autoload folder on another drive and copied the NZBs over.
This has prevented the NZBs from being removed from my main NZB collection.

Is there a better way to preserve NZBs after autoload processing?

All the NZB's should be getting moved to the NZB's folder in the data folder after load so, you could look for them there. The folder is self cleaning. Newsbin will start deleting files when they get 2 days old (the default).

I'll verify this before the next RC.
