PAR2 not renaming and deleting files after repair.
« on: October 28, 2017, 12:38:37 am »
It seems to me that since v44.2 Par2 repair has changed. 

I have the option to capitalize broken files turned on when downloading.  Previously when broken files were repaired, they would be renamed to match the case in the original posting (99.9% of the time lower or at least mixed case).  Now the files are being fixed, but the repaired version is left named in all-caps, and the old broken file is named according to the original posting with a ".1" extension appended.

The reason this is an issue for me is that I use a search tool on my download folder that is able to search files based on case, and I have it set to display a live window of "*.RAR", so that I can quickly see if any downloads were not correctly repaired.  This happens occasionally if the 0-byte .par2 file was broken or missing, and then the Par2 checking/repairing doesn't get done automatically, so I have to go and download another .Par2 file manually to initiate the check/repair.

So with this change, I am not able to use this tool anymore as the search window now shows a whole list of capitalized files, most of which were fixed, but some of which were not, and I can't pick those out.

Can this be looked at please?  It only seems to have started since v44.2, 44.1 and before renamed the files properly after the repair was completed.

thanks!

Yes, I've been messing with that in latest version (it wasn't working for me) But, I've notices that after repair new repaired files are in uppercase. I'll take a look at it.

Upper/lower case should be fixed now. I could not reproduce broken files not beeing deleted after repair.
