Any reason why you can't have Sabnzbd+ download to a local drive. Then have Sick Beard and/or Couch Potato move the files to the NAS afterwards?

hmm.only reason i guess,is i want to keep my 2nd drive relatively free.
i use an ocz120gig ssd for os drive,and a vraptor 300 gig,for games docs etc.

do you use sickbeard alone or in conjunction with couch potato?
have not really looked into that software as i am just getting started out with usenet-which i wish i would have long ago!

SickBeard and Couch Potato 2 different programs. SB handles TV shows and Couch Potato handles movies.

I know SB has a very good autoProcessing script to handle files once SAB has downloaded them, but personally I never tried moving the files with it, mostly cleaning up and proper renaming.

ok i just tested this on my end, using \\NAS\downloads\

\\NAS\downloads\ worked fine if set as Completed Download Folder, but Temporary Download Folder would not allow network paths \\NAS\downloads\incomplete\

then i tried mounting the network path as drive Z:, this allowed sab to set both temp and complete folder to Z:\complete\ - Z:\incomplete\ etc, and this worked perfectly


now the only thing i can think of that i may have done differently is the network path was simply another win7 machine on the same network, and i set the folder share permissions fully open, (manually added - guest, everyone, all users, all set to full control read/write)
