Multiple directories for DestDir & InterDir

Post by isarrider » 03 Jul 2018, 07:58

Hallo hugbug,

as I have a lot of peripherals connected,
depending where I am, it would be great to have
the option to use different directories
(as an example screenshot)

thx,
Isarrider

in this example, check if first entry (N:) is present...
if not, use M: as InterDir (or DestDir)...

All these directories contain data which is preserved across program launches. If one of directories isn't available the program can't work properly. For example if InterDir is changed then a partially downloaded item cannot be continued.

If you need two (or more) fully separate program configurations you can create two (or more) configuration files and start the program with parameter -c /path/to/nzbget.conf. Alternatively you can use option "-o" to change only directories and keep using the same config file. For example:

Code: Select all

nzbget.exe -o DestDir=N:\ -o InterDir=N:\_nzb -o QueueDir=N:\_queue
and

Code: Select all

nzbget.exe -o DestDir=M:\ -o InterDir=M:\_nzb -o QueueDir=M:\_queue
You can create desktop shortcuts to start the program with one or another set of parameters.

Make sure to not use the same QueueDir and InterDir in different configurations.
