Handle obfuscated rar/par2 files better
« on: September 13, 2017, 06:42:35 PM »
Hi!

I'm on v44.2...

This morning I had a folder that had finished downloading that looked like this in the download folder:

Whenever I run MULTIPAR on a PAR2 file from a folder with those obfuscated names, it correctly renames everything so I can then manually UNRAR.

As a test, I re-downloaded the same file from my RSS feed AGAIN - THIS TIME I could see Alt.Binz dynamically renaming the obfuscated names as it downloaded.   However, I was left with RAR files that had not been extracted and cleaned up.

So something a little buggy is going on - It appears to have supported those obfuscated files the second time, but didn't quite get to the unraring/cleanup.

  • Plenty of drive space
  • Only using Win10 OOTB AV
  • I dont think it has ever correctly handled those type of obfuscated names until recent versions anyway

Here is the NZB file that downloaded from an RSS feed I've been testing with:

I had no problem with that nzb.

I would need detailed log for that first download. Also, for future, screenshot of par2 set in par2 tab would help.
Were all files complete when running multipar? Do you remember if par2 set was complete in par2 tab? Why were vol*.par2 downloaded?
