Click now. Click to test the connection.

SABnzbd failed downloads cleanup

Go to Set Up.

We’re going to set this up. So that your hard disk does not fill up. With failed downloads.

We do this with a task. I do this once a week. You don’t want everything removed immediately either. So that if something goes wrong. Then you can find out what’s going wrong.

You do this under Task Planner.

I chose Saturday. Because there’s almost no TV series coming out.

SABnzbd download fails from Newznab provider

If you turn this on, download SABnzbd another version of, for example, a movie or TV series. If it fails the first time. This work in combination with automatic download ing via, for example, CouchPotato or Sonarr.

This just works. If the following requirements are met, the following requirements will be met.

  1. You’re using an automatic download program. Such as, for example. Sonarr, SickRage, Lazylibrarian, Radarr, or Couchpotato.
  2. The Newznab provider. Should support this.

You turn this on in SABnzbd under Settings. And then Special. And then you have to turn on the next check mark new_nzb_on_failure (off)

This was the manual To configure MacOS SAbnzbd to download from the newsgroups. You can now download from the newsgroups. I recommend you to check out this website under the heading Download and then Download Automatically.
