I'm wondering if I've done something wrong. In a little over 48 hours , I've only had 6 successful uploads to my drive. I keep running out of storage and everything hangs. Anything specifi in my setup I should check?

Check /opt/appdata/plexguide for hanging .tar files. For some reason i had a lot of backups hang when they were larger than free space.

I think that since ive been downloading large remuxes, i dont have enough storage to download and process at the same time. Is there a way to set nzbget to download, process and then start downloading again? Or am I overthinking this and missing something

you can limit in sonarr and radarr on how big the files sizes can be. it's one of the first things i do. also, it unpauses to reupload every 30 minutes. it's important to note in nzbget and other programs that you don't want to go below 25gb for various reasons. if your at 13gb and then plex is creating a backup file that's 20gb, you run out of space.

But if im downloading remuxes, arent there limits to how small I want the files to be? Seems like it would defeat the purpose. I could be misunderstanding though.

Basically if you have 40gb of diskspace left, downloading a 30GB remux file well, will stall/crash your system. Worse if backups are in play.

I’m encountering the same issue. It’s the processing time that is causing an issue. Everything downloads well. Well... too well. The post-processing takes far longer, so the hard drive fills up and then never clears the backlog of remuxes.

A 2x NVME setup will be quicker at handling the post-processing. I’m going to set aside some time to try that tomorrow, assuming there isn’t a big charge for an extra drive?

i've been running out of space on my first hard drive with a 2nd hard drive dedicated to downloading and processing. Not sure what's filling up a 450gb hard drive unless it's just plex metadata and sonarr and radarr stuff.
