NL 7b7 not managing RAR extract passwords correctly

Post by shoek »

It does not ever increment the "Extracts" field on each password anymore. It worked in earlier beta versions.

It does not remove after the X number of days

It would be nice to have an option on each password for "remove after extract"

I also noticed that when extracting with a password, NL starts with the first pw in the list. If that one fails - at the end of the whole extracting proces - it'll go on with the next pw in the list. So with 10 9GB DVDs queued up, it'll take forever to extract. It would be nice to be able to assign a pw to a specific download

And pw's are stored alphabetically, so adding and deleting them manually after an extract requires you log the pw's yourself. If they were stored in order they were put in, you only would have to delete the top pw after an extract
