If you have configured a news server in Grabit. Then it’s time to import some NZB files into Grabit. So that we, can download with Grabit from the newsgroups.
NZB file import Grabit for download
Click My Grabit. Then click on NZB Import. And then Add. Then find your NZB file. Then Grabit starts downloading from the newsgroups.
Grabit Customize Download folder
By default, everything is downloaded. On C drive of your computer. Usually that’s not convenient. Because on a lot of computers, this is an SSD hard drive. And these are often a lot smaller than an old-fashioned hard drive. This is nice for Windows. Because this works a lot faster.
But there is no need to save your downloads here. It doesn’t get any faster because of this. An old-fashioned hard drive is much more convenient, for your downloads. Because you often have much more space at your disposal.
Go to Grabit, go to Edit. And then Preferences.
Adjust these three folders here. To the desired location.
Cache is the folder. Where your downloads are temporarily saved.
Downloads are the files that are completely inside.
Extracted files is the folder where everything is unpacked.
You have several ways to search for files with Grabit
Below I discuss the possibilities. How to get NZB files for Grabit. Or you can use the search option within Grabit.
You can also use the Grabit Search. Only I do not recommend this, it can be very slow and there is little to find. But you can be lucky.
Click on your news server. En klik dan eerst op update groups.
Then click on Grabit usenet Search. And then specify what you want to search for to download. Then select all files with the same name. And then click Grab. The download will then begin.
