Automatically delete nzbs from NzbDir?

Post by wilberfan » 28 Nov 2013, 05:45

I can't find the setting to automatically remove nzbs from the NzbDir after completion. I end up with a xxxx.nzb.queued file for each download.

Is this a 'setting' or something handled by a post-processing script?

In v12 source nzb-files are deleted when they are not necessary anymore - more precisely: when items are removed from history according to option KeepHistory. These files are needed for certain actions on history items and therefore kept as long as items remain in history.

In v11 and older versions the source nzb-files are deleted when downloads are finished but only for successful downloads. For failed downloads source nzb-files are never deleted (kept for manual troubleshooting).

I've been having this issue for some time now. Currently I'm on nzbget 12.0 r914 under Gentoo. I've always had KeepHistory=0 and for some time now (can't remember which version) every nzb says in my ~/nzb/nzb with the *.queued name unless I manually delete it.

Is there something I'm missing there?

Probably a bug with KeepHistory=0. I'll check this.
