(Question) Where are incomplete non-archived video files?

Post by SLR »

I see files such as archives, nfos and images, but not loose video files in the incomplete folder. Are they accessible during download, and if so, where are they?

Many thanks.

No, since they are inside the archives.
If you have Direct Unpack enabled, the video file will start unpacking to the Complete Folder while downloading is still going on.

I mean loose video files uploaded without being archived. The upload format is most commonly multi-part archives, but when I select the folder next to the job that hints "Edit NZB Details - Password", it sometimes shows there are no archives, just a singular video file.

When a download is in this format, it's not in the incomplete or complete folder until completion, regardless of DirectUnpack.

No, in that case it is in separate files until we have them all. Unfortunatly SABnzbd isn't very optimized for his.

Appreciate the answer. I'm writing a script that makes use of DirectUnpack, but I don't understand why DirectUnpack sometimes stops despite mbmissing still being 0.00. Why might this be?

You can inspect in the logs when it happens, there can be for example a missing article. You need to enable +Debug logging in the Status and Interface settings window.
It could also be an error in the unrar-process.
