Weird Beahvior with 4.1.0

Post by jermdog2112 »

Fairly new to all of this, but I am seeing very odd behavior with the latest release. For every download, 2 files are being created with no extension:
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA41985

and

πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€

Does anyone know what this is or what is going on? This occurs with every download, along with sab_test.txt, which I also cannot seem to stop. Any help would be appreciated.

Win 11, SABnzbd 4.1.0

That sounds very strange. What kind of things are you downloading?
Are you sure your Sabnzbd isn't exposed to the internet and someone is messing with you?

No one is messing with me. I've been doing periodic testing to be sure. It only happens when I download items - the usual stuff, nothing crazy or large. Does anyone know how to turn off the test download? It might be related to that.

There is no test download, only if you initiate one yourself in the Status window.

Those files are created on startup to test your folders. So clearly something is wrong, otherwise that file would be automatically removed..

Where are your download folders?
Don't you get an error on startup?

Download, incomplete and complete folders are all on the same NAS drive (Synology). SABnzbd runs from a Windows 11 machine, not on the NAS. No errors on start up. When I have time, I guess I will uninstall and reinstall SABnzbd. I guess that might be an option. I'll make sure to make a copy of my ini file for all of my connection info.

Reinstalling SABnzbd did not resolve the issue. Simply opening SABnzbd 4.1.0 is creating these files. The sab_test.txt file has the text " Some random content". The rocket file has the same exact text. The "A' file is actually ACEDO4~P as the real file name and cannot be opened.

So what is the path to your download folders?

You should never put anything else than your complete folder on your NAS. Certainly not your Incomplete folder.
If you tried using network paths, SABNZBD will prevent you. But probably you used a mounted drive letter?
