Files do net get the date/time of unpacking when checking "ignore_unrar_dates" switch

Post by gevrey »

I am using SABnzbd 3.1.0 on Windows 10.
I have checked the switch "ignore_unrar_dates" to ON and restarted SABnzbd.
The unpacked files still get the date/time stamp they have in the archive, not the date/time of unpacking.
I have tried to disable "Direct Unpack" but the result is the same.

Anybody has seen that problem and knows how to solve it?

Strange, I just tested it and for me it works.
Just to be sure, the download you are using uses rar-files? Not zip or 7zip files?

Correct.

Any test I can do? Log I can share?

When you download this file, with the switch turned ON, it should show the modification-date as today:

What modification date do you get?

It seems that some files (videos) get the current date whilst others get the original file date:

Wait, do you use Sorting?
In that case the switch won't work, since after unpacking SABnzbd still "touches" the file to rename them.

I do use sorting actually, but not really to sort, I just want to avoid that the file is stored within a folder, I want a flat list of my downloads.
Is there a better way to do that?

I removed the sorting, but still, same.

There's not much to do about this.. We provide unrar with the switch to ignore the dates, but somehow it doesn't work. Maybe a bug in unrar.

Not a big deal. Thanks for your support though.
