Move NZB after completion?

Post by NexusBender » 15 Aug 2018, 18:21

I'm testing moving over to NZBGet to get improved performance. So far mostly so good, but one thing I find I'm missing is NZBs moving to a completed folder. Is there a setting for this in NZBGet, or is this the kind of thing I should make a post-processing script for?

Thank you!

What do you mean? Nzb-files are used as input. Downloaded files are put into DestDir in a subfolder with name of nzb. To organize movies and series we have pp-script VideoSort.

So, the folder I have NZBGet watching for new NZBs, after it gets processed and the contents queued for download, it gets renamed with a .queued extension, but it stays in the watch folder.

Can I have it moved to a different folder entirely? It sort of looks like part of the dup check mechanism expects files to remain in the watch folder, so maybe that's not a good thing to have happen? I just am used to having the watched folder being empty. It's not a big deal if I can't though.
Thank you!

I was also looking for a solution for this problem.
SABnzbd has a folder called .nzb Backup Folder
where nzb files are moved to after completion.

In NZBGet directory set by option NzbDir is where the incoming nzb-files should be put. The imported files remain there and are managed (deleted) by NZBGet automatically.

You should not use this directory for any other purposes, in particular I do not recommend to use your general downloads directory as NzbDir in NZBGet.

I know this is an old thread, but do nzb files EVER get deleted from the NZB watch folder?

I have files dating back several years, either of type:ERROR or type:QUEUED.

I have set to keep history for 30 days and NZB cleanup enabled.
But I do also have DUPE CHECK enabled. Is this latter why they persist?

Thanks

The files are deleted when a history item is deleted or hidden. That's 30 days with your settings.
The files may survive due to queue corruption or bugs.
These files are necessary only for command "Download again". You can safely remove all files (even newer ones) if you are not going to use that command.
