Quick question. When I manually download something, say a torrent of a season of a show that keeps failing with Usenet due to DMCA, where do I move it to once the download is finished? I thought I was supposed to move it to /mnt/move/media-type-folder (e.g. /mnt/move/tv) but I'm not sure that's correct as sometimes the files disappear and never show up again after moving.

For example, I downloaded a season of a show, moved it /mnt/move/tv with proper naming for Sonarr, PGUI showed it uploading and from there it's disappeared. That was two days ago so I have no idea what happened. This isn't the first time files have disappeared into the nether as well.

So, is /mnt/move/ the correct location or should i be moving them directly to /mnt/unionfs or /mnt/tdrive?

Okay, I didn't think of that, I'll try it with my most recent download and see how it goes

try a test file movie.mkv just make something in notepad or test.txt

that way dont have to wait for large file to dl and unpack etc

So moving a show I had waiting to move into /mnt/downloads/tv does allow it to show up in Sonarr. I also noticed other shows I had Sonarr downloading through NZBGet show up in there as well, so it looks correct.

You don't. you just manually import it into Sonarr or Radarr via the wanted tab, and then let it deal with it. You'd import from /mnt/unionfs/sabnzbd etc

I've been using Sonarr for going on 4 years now and never knew about that feature, I've always manually imported by manually renaming and moving. That's a game changer right there, lol. Thanks for that!

Sorry for bringing this old thread up. I want to do the same but I'm not sure how to manually import?

- I downloaded a single .nzb and imported it manually to nzbget for download. The completed movie is now in /mnt/downloads/nzbget/movies
--> What is the best way to proceed from here? I want the files to be uploaded to to tcrypt and from there I assume radarr will autoscan the folder and add it to the existing movies. But I assume before uploading I had to import them to radarr for renaming and proceeding? :unsure:

Thank you!
