encrypted rars

Post by frankey999 » June 12th, 2011, 10:11 pm

Hi all,
I seem to be having a run of encrypted rars.  I have the switch "Pause job when encrypted rar is downloaded" checked, but it doesn't seem to be working.  It still downloads everything and then fails to unpack.

Is there anything else I can do to stop these ones from coming down?

Encrypted rar detection doesn't always work, depending on the method used.
Also, for small downloads it can happen that all files are in
at about the same time, making the detection moot.
There's only one way to prevent: watch comments and flags on indexing sites.
(E.g. binsearch.info often flags encrypted downloads).
