Direct Unpack does that twice

Post by xtrips »

Hello,

I was not sure about this problem so I decided to monitor it 3 times with my own eyes.
On big downloads, above 50 Gb, direct unpack works fine right until the end.
I can see the progression in my download folder.
But right at the last moment when it should rename the folder from _UNPACK_ ... and finish, instead it deletes the folder with all its files and starts a new folder to re-unpack the same thing.
Only after the second time it does close the download.
This is such a waste of resources and time.
How can I remedy to that?

It's probably because of a time-limit.
It will only let Direct Unpack go on after the download finishes for a few minutes, in case it somehow got stuck.
Maybe disable it for now? Or set it to Pause during Post-Processing,so that it can post-process faster.

Sabnzbd is set to pause while post processing already.
What else?

Any more help about that?
The problem still exists.
I can still see Direct Unpack working, filling the target directory correctly.
And then, right at the end, it is deleted and the whole process starts again, including checking, repair, unpack etc.....
Such a waste

Maybe I should extend the time it's allowed to continue after the download finishes. I can do that for version 2.3.5.

Could you maybe enable Debug logging in the Status and Interface settings window and then after you see it has happend again send me the logs (click Show Logging) at [email protected]?
Maybe something else is going on.
