same problem here. It needed 16 blocks to repair an .iso file. The paused par2 set just wasn't unpaused and NL closed down. Also i discovered it deleted the .nfo file for no apparent reason....

After downloading a mp3 album(files are in .mp3 not rars) after verifying the files, the mp3s get deleted, and the only files in the directory was the nfo and 1 par2 file

settings are...

RnE tab
Enabled(Checked) Verify(Checked) Repair(Checked) Extract(Checked) Monitor(Checked)

Options settings
Auto Unpause(Checked)

Extract to
Same folder where archive is

Extract to Separate folder (Unchecked)

After Successful Extraction
Delete Archives and par2 files


and my issue again is when downloading a mp3 album, after it verifies all the mp3 files get deleted only leaving a par2 file and a nfo file


log file.. files downloaded for testing only

Code: Select all

Oh, I had this issue as well. 2 folders, one empty. Thanks for bringing this up as it probably will get annoying after time. Didn't think of it because it only happened with me on the .nzb files I downloaded and threw into my import folder.

seems to be lots of bugs....and r&e is slow as hell....takes 3 times longer than autounpack....and no way to make the program close when finished if you want to use the r&e feature...i'll keep using autounpack until these issues get worked out...or it at least get's faster...

@BASDsucks

These lines from your log file seem to point to the root problem:

1/28/2007 5:55:33 PM * Start Extraction : [ No Archives to Extract - Moving Files Instead ]
1/28/2007 5:55:33 PM * Copying Eventual Non-Archive File to Destination ...
..
1/28/2007 5:55:34 PM * [Recyclebin] - Deleted File Set Files to Recyclebin ....

RnE detects that there is nothing to unrar, so tries to move the files instead. Since files can't be moved to the same directory, it tries to copy them - also problematic. Then it moves the whole set to the recycle bin. This could easily be corrected by Spiril in different ways:

* cancel move operation if source and destination folder are the same

* only delete par2 files if there is nothing to unrar (there is already a flag for this)

* always create subfolder for non-archive files if source and destination directory are the same

* create copies with suffixes (not so good)

etc.

The interim solution is not to set extract to the source folder.

I enjoy the new rar/extract feature. It seems to do a very adequate job and eliminates one of the steps I used to have to take. It seems a little slow, but that is OK with me.

I did have some zip files and mp3 files deleted, but just read hecks post and have re-enabled extracting to a sub-folder. I hope this gets fixed as it is just another folder hierarchy that I don't want to have to mess with.

I do have a question though. Did I miss an option to delete paused par2 files from my queue directory when they are not needed? If somebody else has already mentioned, I'm sorry, my memory isn't as good as it used to be!

Now if I could just get spiril to bring my check-boxes back, than I'd be even more pleased with NL than I am right now (and I'm very pleased).

Hmmm. I just noticed a strange bug although I think it has more to do with SuperSearch than it does with Repair'n'Extract.

If I access the R'n'E tab, right-click a file name that has a hyphen in it and choose to find the file in SuperSearch, NewsLeecher says that no matches were found and then says that "you must include at least one word to be included in your search query." The same thing happens if I type in the complete file name in SuperSearch, and the only work-around I've found is to remove the hyphen and any characters before it.

Can this please be addressed in a future update?

The hyphen is obviously being read as a minus = excluded search terms. Encapsulating the filename with quotation marks should solve this, I would think.

Edit: I notice that this is only a problem if there is a space before the hyphen. Oddly, the first letter of the filename is always removed from the search string - I'm sure there must be a good reason for this. :?:

Adding quotation marks around the SuperSearch term generated by R'n'E doesn't seem to make a difference. I've also noticed that the first letter of the file name is removed from the search box for no apparent reason. I understand that SuperSearch may have certain conditions for excluding results, but I think that exceptions should be made for file names that contain hyphens which are searched for from the R'n'E file list.

CPU Priority

Post by sdfdsdf »

)Hey,

v3.9b1 is looking real good.

Please notify if there is a way of doing the following:

I assume that the PAR checking and RAR extraction tasks are handled by seperate threads, would it be possible for us to set (perhaps in the settings) a process priority to the respective threads/tasks.

i.e. Set PAR checking at low, without effecting the priority of Newsleecher itself.

Reason: Most of the time I treat Newsleecher as a backround service, and therefore would not like it to take precious ( :D ) process time away from other applications.

Keep up the great work!!

The speed of RnE doesn't really matter much to me because alot of things go into queue and I check it out when I can. It's not often I sit and wait for a download to finish so I can play with it right away.

I'd hope the speed would be one the back burner and more important things were delt with first.

But I guess one man's ideal of what's important is different than anothers! That's why we have polls and take votes! :idea:

remove paused par2's when extracting done

Can an option be added to remove the PAR2's that are Paused in the Queue after a successful extraction?

I think that is one of the most requested additions to be made. I second it :)

I would assume the "Repair'n'Extract Tab should be showing the number it is fixing. In this case, it's just showing 1::repairing #% and loops.
The repair progress bar is a bit wonky and seems to constantly move from 1 - 100% and then start over again. Are you sure the repair is looping, and it's not just the progress bar acting like a ADD child hopped up on sugar and caffeine?
To be honest I'm not 100% positive. It only had 4 files to repair and never finished the first one after around 20-30 minutes. I'm not sure if the bug happened because of the above disconnecting.

It never starts? Is there some debugging I can turn on?
