.url extension ignored in the clean up list

Post by ErikBrown »

Windows 10 32
SABNzbd 2.2.0

The clean up list that I use (to automatically remove files with the mentioned extensions) is as follows:

.nfo, .sfv, .srr, .nzb, .exe, .doc, .docx, .scr, .vbs, .url, .com, .html, .htm, .par, .par2, .bat, .cmd, .msi, .php, .msc, .js, .jar, .lnk, .inf, .wsf, .asx, .cab, .efi, .dmg

But I see often still internet shortcuts with the extension .url in the list of downloaded files. Is there maybe a limit on the number of extensions that can be listed as unwanted?

This happens already for a long time and with several versions of SABnzbd and anyway till version 2.2.0

There should not be a limit.
You can switch logging to +Info in the Status Window and then you can see in the log the line "Removing unwanted file .." to see what it filtered.
