Cannot access some directories SABNZB is creating

Post by flyfoam »

I am using Win 10 and SABNZB 3.0.2. SABNZB creates a folder _UNPACK_xyz and another folder xyz. The xyz folder is not accessible, it gives me an error "Location is not available" when I try to access the folder and I have admin user. It's on my local SSD drive. The _UNPACK_xyz folder is available and all the files are successfully unrared and they can be accessed.

I cannot remove the xyz folder (and many others that SABNZB created). I finally moved all the data that I could off the drive and formatted it thinking their might be an issue with NTFS file system. Downloaded some more content and it's the same problem but it's not happening with all downloads. This started after upgrading to the 3.x version.

How can delete these folders? I had to backup the entire SSD, format it and then copy back the data. It's a long process doing that. There has to be a way to delete this?

This indeed is a bug that will be fixed in 3.1.0.
If it happens again, you can delete it as so: https://stackoverflow.com/a/4123173

Is there anyway to delete all these folders I cannot access? I really don't want to backup the SSD again and format it.

It seems to work, I downloaded the same NZB's that gave me the issue and now they work correctly.
