Why does unraring add ".1" to the folder name?

Hi,

All of a sudden (and without any change of settings) the automatic unraring adds ".1" in the end of the filename. For example: "xxxxx.xxxx.2009.NORDIC.PAL.DVDR-NLC.1". I may be stupid, but why is this? And how do I get rid of it? It's irritating to have to delete this everytime  ;D

Your NZB file probably contains identically named files.
Since two files cannot have the same name, SABnzbd must rename one.

Thank you for your response  ;D

I have already checked this, the content of the NZB's is as usual .rar-files from .r00 and up, NFO and PARS. No identical files  :( Not the biggest problem in the world though, heh.

I may have misread your post.
Is it about the final folder getting a .1 appended?
That only happens when a folder with the same name already exists.

This happened to me when I used the same folder for temp files as downloads, moving temp folder solved. Otherwise all folders would add the .1

You shouldn't be using the same folder.
At the very least make "incomplete" a sub-folder of "complete".
