Option to delete nfo sfv ect.
« on: May 06, 2009, 04:24:24 pm »
i would like to have the option to autodelete specific file-type in the way the transfer to unrar option works because i usualy never take a look at them again and deleting manualy can be quite tedious...

May I piggyback on this request by asking for option to delete download folder on clicking cleanup button for maximal laziness.

it's basicly the same thing because if u get arid of all files,the download-folder will be empty and thus deleted automaticly... but the best thing would still be not having to download nfo's and sfv's in order to enable automatic unraring as i requested earlier on: https://www.altbinz.net/forum/index.php?topic=2618.0

Pls Add - Delete *.nfo after unrar
« Reply #3 on: October 13, 2009, 09:47:53 am »
In Alt.Binz, I've paused the NFO file from being downloaded, however, the small PAR2 file causes the missing NFO file to be rebuilt from pars. Then the file either remains in the "download" directory or get's moved to the "unrar" directory. Am I missing a feature to simply delete the NFO file after unrar?

Thanks...

And here I thought this was just me.  I don't remember there being nfo files to delete until just recently.  Is that a new feature?

Yes, I find the nfo's screw up xbmc sometimes so I use a batch file in the root of my unrar folder with the following RSS filter. I stick it on the end of each one and that way everytime one runs it tidies up the folder. You could easily add extra file types.

dexter* | A | | D:\mediashare\series\Dexter | D:\mediashare\series\cleanup.bat

and this is the contents of the "cleanup.bat" file.

del D:\mediashare\*.nfo /S

the script runs after the repair/unrar... does alt.binz delete the folder empty once the nfo is gone?

Monolith1 Sounds like an interesting concept I might need to try as an interim fix.

  I use Alt.Binz to download all of my wife's TV show (there is a LOT! ::) )  Of course I have to keep allow everything that the small par2 file says is part of the download so it will autounrar, but then i'm always stuck with a lot of .sfv, .nfo, and sometimes the original small par2 file itself along with other bull files. 

Just getting a feature to select files types to autodelete after unrar is completed would be the best solution for me.  All of my TV shows UnRaR into my Videos Directory without subfolders.   In Media Center 7 I don't even know how cluttered it is in there until I open up the folder and look.  2 weeks worth of shows without opening the directory and it leaves almost 86 files of garbage .nfo, .sfv, some other ones as well.  Not everyone wants the same things deleted so being able to put which ones the individual wants would be helpful. 

Also maybe a selection to autodelete files if a repair fails, or unrar fails.  With RSS feeds a fix is usually re-posted shortly afterwords so deleting it would be no big deal for me as it will just re-download when the new version is posted..

Thanks davidq666 for posting this!

If you create seperate subfolders for each download, then Monolith1's script isn't optimal for you, because instead of the files u will be stuck with empty folders. in this case the 7zip.bat script from MrbLOB9000 would be a better choice:

https://www.altbinz.net/forum/index.php?topic=1244.msg14031#msg14031

but u could also create ur own by using

del %1\*.sfv for deleting files from within the download folder

move %1\*.mp3 %2 for moving files to unrar folder

and at the end use:

rd %1 to delete the download folder in case it's empty

I would also make use of an option such as "Delete *.NFO after successfully unraring" similar to the others on the "Unrar Options" tab. (Pure laziness on my behalf.)
BTW I think the program is terrific!

In the meantime, David's script here works very well, and it only needs to be set up once - takes 2 mins:

I can confirm that the script works perfectly.  You must be doing something wrong.
