Even if it was possible to specify other drives sabnzbd still has to know where to put stuff, so it consequentially has to know which drives to look after. Please apologize if I missed something.
One problem is that unrar doesn't always return usable error messages.
But SABnzbd will see that something is wrong and will not delete the source files.
Also SABnzbd never removes failed destination folders.
This is a precaution, we prefer taking no risks with your media collection.
The scenario where SABnzbd simply moves files from "temp" to "final" is indeed a weak point.
True moving of files within a single partition should not be a problem, but the copy/delete over partitions
should be done more carefully. In the sense that first all copies should be done and after that
deletion of the originals.
It is very hard to make fail-safe scenarios for disk-full situations, especially when SABnzbd isn't the
only program writing data.
2. You missed the fact that you can use a fully qualified path for each category (d:\my_shows and e:\my_movies).
