Seeing Random file names upon unpack

Post by bogchop » November 20th, 2017, 9:26 pm

Hi all.

I've noticed that some of my downloads in the last 6 months have been coming back with random filenames in their respective directories, such as:

`6c526a96f5b61ea3` yEnc (01+68)
`20f2ca3fcffa248f` yEnc (01+68)
`61ac6877a8a57e61` yEnc (01+65)

... and so forth. Is this an issue with the usenet provider? I'm currently running the latest build of SAB, on WinHomeServer 2011.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

These posts are obfuscated, a technique to hide them from DCMA takedown.
The only way for a post to still be salvageable is if it includes a par2 file. Sabnzbd will use the recovery information to detect the right filenames. Does this post have any par2 files?
If so: could you send the NZBs to me at [email protected]?
If there's no par2 included, there's nothing to do to fix it unfortunately.

I thought as much. In most case, no par2 files :(

Question for @bogchop:

Why did you decide to download those files?

My guess: somewhere you got to link to those files. If so: that "somewhere" must tell what it is?

@sander - I downloaded an NZB as per usual. When I looked in the unpacked dir, it's how they all came. Other nzb's from the same TV series unpacked just fine.
