    Additional Notes

    From @stammbraeu if you're having issues with files not removing from SAB download directory

    find /mnt/downloads/sabnzbd/* -mtime +3 -exec rm -rf {} \;
    Important: In order not to delete new files i have set sabnzbd NOT to use the archive date but rather the current date

    There is a setting in "Special" and is called: ignore_unrar_dates
    This setting has to be checked because otherwise sab will set the date to when the archive was created
