SABnzbd not deleting original folder after unpacking

Post by adring »

Hi all,

I could not locate this same issues through search. I am having an issue that I cant figure out how to fix.

I have SABnzdb running on a Synology NAS within Docker and using Emby to view media.

The issue i am running into is that when a new movie is downloaded and moved to the /movies folder, two folders are created for the movie. One folder is the proper movie title. E.g: Alien (1979) and the second folder appears to be the original filename that was downloaded e.g: Alien 1978.1080p.dts.English. This is resulting in Emby displaying two thumbnails for the same movie. The only way i've been able to fix this is to manually delete one of the folders from the File Station within Synology.

Any suggestions? Is this a missed SABnzbd setting or is the problem with Radarr or Emby?

Much appreciated!

What is your:
Temporary Download Folder
Completed Download Folder

What is the full path of the two almost-the-same directories

Since i am a new user to the forum, i am unable to post "links" or what the forum believes is a link so its difficult for me to post the exact path so please bear with me.

My downloads temp folder is -Volume1-Downloads-Temp
My completed downloads folder is -Volume1-Movies

Path of the directories, both of which contain a mkv file:
-volume1-Movies_Movie-Title-Including-Quality-Group-Ripped
_volume1_Movies-Movie Title Including Movie Year

-'s representing forward slashes.

I noticed while loading the properties of each folder within Synology that the owner of each folder is different. The top folder lists "sabnzbd" while the bottom folder lists my login. I dont know what setting (or where for that matter) is checked to have a clean folder name created, and why its not removing the old one.

Below is a grab from the Categories folder within Sabnzbd. Not sure if this is helpful or relevant.
