Unrar folder issue
« on: September 08, 2015, 08:28:41 PM »
The Unrar option "Create subfolder based on NZB name" only works if the option "Unrar to a different folder" is enabled.

I don't see any logic to that scenario:

- if download option "Create subfolder based on NZB name" is used you'll end up with
  \download_dir\NZB_name\NZB_name

- if download option "Create subfolder based on NZB name" is not used you'll end up with
  \download_dir\NZB_name which is perfectly fine but that means you'll download all your files into one dir \download_dir which is not good practise
  You'll get same result with download option "Create subfolder based on NZB name" used and unrar to different folder unchecked but without downside of downloading every nzb file into same folder

Or am I missing something?

Let me try to rephrase the problem.

If I select "Create subfolder based on NZB name", but I do not also select "Unrar to a different folder", I get \download_dir\NZB_name.ext, with all files being downloaded and unRARed to the same folder.  It does not create any subfolders at all.  I do not think this is the correct behavior.  I would expect to get  \download_dir\NZB_name\NZB_name.ext.

On the other hand, the option "Create subfolder based on archive name" behaves differently.  It creates a subfolder whether or not the "Unrar to a different folder" option is selected.  I think this is the correct behavior.

Just to clarify, I'm talking about UnRAR options, not download options.  I don't have any "create directory" download options selected.  I want to download everything into a single folder, and then unRAR into a subfolder of the download folder.

You're right. There are few bugs.

Should be all fixed.
