[PP-Script] Move download directory to a new destination

Post by SunMar » 02 Jan 2016, 19:42

Today when setting up NZBGet I ran into the issue that NZBGet unpacks a download in a temporary _unpack directory inside the destination folder. My destination directory was monitored however by Plex, which would open the file before it was unpacked, locking it and subsequently causing a failure in NZBGet when it tried to move the file after unpacking to its final destination. Since I couldn't find an option in NZBGet to have it unpack in the intermediate directory I took the Flatten files PP script as an example and wrote a new script that can move a download to a new location after unpacking. Attached it here for anyone who has the same issue and feedback is also appreciated :).

Nice script and thanks for sharing it.

In your particular case you could add "_unpack" to .plexignore.

Unfortunately .plexignore doesn't function properly, it's very buggy, especially when it comes to ignoring directories. I've tried adding _unpack and some variations of it like */_unpack/* to a .plexignore file in my root directory but none of those worked, Plex still locked up the files in _unpack. If you know the proper .plexignore configuration to make it work I'd love to hear it :).

Note that I just noticed a bug already and fixed it :oops:. [NZB] DIRECTORY= was the destination root instead of "destination/dirname".

Then you know better than me. I don't use plex; just read somewhere about plexignore, didn't knew it doesn't work properly.
May be you should report the bug to them BTW?

There are already bug reports for the .plexignore issues, some of them a couple of years old. Lately they have been starting to fix them though so hopefully it'll soon be fixed but I didn't want to wait for that :). It's really nice that NZBGet is so extensible.

This script (like most others) doesn't work with Python3. Either remove Python3 and install Python2 only and make sure file association in registry for .py-files is correct. Or use option ShellOverride in NZBGet to specify that .py-files must be executed by your python2.

Thanks for the script. So I can set a separate completed folder and So if append category is set to yes, will it use the paths I set in each category ? The category paths should be where I want the final copy to go to.
