Completed downloads stay 100% in Download Queue (and Temp directory)

Added by surfer almost 2 years ago

Hi,

I just started using NNTPgrab (running on Ubuntu).

The downloads go OK, but:
1) the downloads stay as "100%" in the Download Queue
2) the succesfully reparied/unpacked/etc resulting download stay in the Temp directory, and are not moved to Downloads

Configuration -> Postprocessing has all six boxes checked.

Any tips how to solve this or where to look?

Are you sure that the configuration points to the correct Downloads folder?
The Temp folder should only contain small temporary files (about 500KB per file max).
Once all parts for a single file have been downloaded and decoded it should be moved to
the Downloads folder automatically (and the temporary files from the Temp folder should be removed).
All further post-processing (repair and unpack) should happen inside the Downloads folder

Ah, you're good! The config was like below. Changed the download directory, and it works fine now.

Thank you.

[options]
download_directory=/home/sander/NNTPGrab/Temp
temp_directory=/home/sander/NNTPGrab/Temp
