Hi
I am looking for a script that i can run that will add today's date to a folder then unpack the download into it, so every day i have a new folder with that days downloads in, in sorting option there is that option but it only works if the nzb has the date in, and all my downloads do not,
eg
file1.mkv downloads and unpacks to data:\todaysdate\file1folder\file1.mkv
thanks

What are you looking for exactly?
- a readily-available script, or
- guidance how to write such a script?, or
- someone who writes the script for you? If so, do you offer a bounty?

And: which OS? As you say "UNRAID DOCKER" ... is it Linux?

guidance would be nice so i can learn, but if there is a ready made script i can just copy that would be fine, unraid is linux based the docker runs python3

OK, guidance: how would you do it by hand from the Linux command line?

Reason: a script does no magic ... it's just the same sequence of commands you would issue by hand, which you can let happen automatically.

from the command line i can make the folder i need in the location i want using the following command but i am unsure then how to tell sab to use the new folder each time it changes as i only want the file downloaded from that category to use the command so how do i tell the script which files i need moving as it will not be the entire download folder as i have sonarr and wathcer running also
today=$(date +"%m_%d_%y")
mkdir $today

OK, and that works?
Then move the directory with the download to that new dated directory ...

HI,
Found the issue why its not working, the code has to be Python .py to run inside the docker, i have no idea about this
if anybody has worked out how to add a date to the front of a folder inside the download folder with python please could you share
thanks
