Ability to move completed, verified downloads to another folder?

Post by hl2guide » January 14th, 2018, 5:37 am

The ability to auto-move completed, verified downloads to another folder would be particularly useful. ;D O0

For example: Sabnzbd completes and verifies a download in the folder "C:\Downloads\Usenet Downloads" that is a fast internal SSD then is moved to an slower massive external HDD [3TB] archive.

This would allow the original download folder to be fast for decompression and processing reasons while having download data not taking up space on a small fast SSD.

A built-in, simple option for specifying a move target folder would be nice since it's easy to understand and does need post-processing nerdy scripting to be achieved.

I think I'm not getting it :P

You would want 3 folders, Incomplete, Intermediate, Complete?
But what if you just set Complete to the 3TB drive? That's not what you would like?

Just 2 locations are involved. e.g.

The second location is a slower drive that is not suitable for fast processing (unpacking, etc).

So, repair and unpacking on drive 1 and only then move to drive 2?
Is that really faster? Since it will still have to transfer to drive 2, it will be stuck then?

Answer #1: Yes
Answer #2: Yes
Answer #3: Stuck? What do you mean? ???

I'm just talking about automating the action I do manually already, moving completed files to another drive.

This functionality would allow me to have a download queue that is 100GB and have it run to completion without pausing.

The moving operation would block further post processing of other jobs.
I also have a small drive as download drive for my Incomplete folder, but then I have set the Complete folder to another slow drive. This way Unrar unpacks directly to the slow drive and then after it's done its gone right away from the Incomplete drive.

Okay I'll test that out more but in the past the unpack operation has taken much longer for me that way.
