Starting yesterday, I noticed SABnzbd was running very low on diskspace and stopped downloading my list of movies. I discovered that the
/mnt/downloads/sabnzbd folder was filled with movies, as if they never automatically transferred to GDrive. I have seen people refer to a manual way to remove the files in that folder, but never found how to do it.

Additionally, I want to make sure this clog will not happen in the future. What steps can I take to ensure that? Here are additional screenshots of my folder paths on Radarr, in which I believe is already set correctly.

Code:
sudo rm -rf /mnt/downloads/sabnzbd 
sudo mkdir -p /mnt/downloads/sabnzbd
sudo chown -cR 1000:1000 /mnt/downloads/sabnzbd 
sudo chmod -cR 755 /mnt/downloads/sabnzbd 
sudo docker restart sabnzbd

Check REMOTE PATH!!!!!
Code:
/mnt/downloads/SABnzbd  is wrong
Code:
/mnt/downloads/sabnzbd  is correct

Here's my daily cron job script that deletes any folder (and it's contents) older than 3 days old and any empty folder older than 5 days old:
Code:
find /mnt/downloads/sabnzbd -type d -ctime +2 -exec rm -rf {} +
find /mnt/downloads/sabnzbd -type d -empty -ctime +5 -exec rm -rf {} +

That's great advice about the path. You might also check Radarr to see if you have some titles that are configured for the wrong location as well.
