File leftover in /completed

Sonarr Version:
Package Version: nightly-b46422a-156 by hotio
Mono Version:

SABnzbd Version: 3.2.0-develop [unknown]
Python Version: 3.8.5 (default, Jul 20 2020, 23:11:29) [GCC 9.3.0] [UTF-8]

I don’t know if this is a Sonarr or SABnzbd problem. So I am sorry if I have posted this in the wrong forum.

Every time Sonarr/SABnzbd has processed a download - The original file is still in /completed.
This time there is also a .txt file but it also happens if there is only a .mkv file

Every thing works as expected - Then only problem is, that I manual have to delete the folder/files from /completed.

When I look in the Sonarr Debug Log I can see this:

  • 20-10-5 12:37:34.3|Warn|DownloadedEpisodesImportService|Non-sample file detected: [/downloads/completed/Series/Fargo.S04E03.Raddoppiarlo.1080p.AMZN.WEB-DL.DDP5.1.H.264-TOMMY/Fargo.S04E03.Raddoppiarlo.1080p.AMZN.WEB-DL.DDP5.1.H.264-TOMMY.mkv]

  • 20-10-5 12:37:34.3|Debug|DownloadEventHub|SABnzbd does not support marking items as imported

Pastebin: (look at line 342 and 349)


To start, please post the full debug log of the import.

I have uploaded all the debug log files to Google Drive:

20-10-5 12:36:43.1|Debug|DiskScanService|2 video files were found in /downloads/completed/Series/Fargo.S04E03.Raddoppiarlo.1080p.AMZN.WEB-DL.DDP5.1.H.264-TOMMY


Ultimately Sonarr imported the first file (looks like it was obfuscated):

20-10-5 12:36:43.3|Debug|EpisodeFileMovingService|Moving episode file: /downloads/completed/Series/Fargo.S04E03.Raddoppiarlo.1080p.AMZN.WEB-DL.DDP5.1.H.264-TOMMY/84506tMbYC(1).mkv to /tv/Fargo/Season 04/Fargo - S04E03 - Raddoppiarlo [WEBDL-1080p] [h264 EAC3]-TOMMY.mkv

Sonarr then won’t import the second because it’s already imported that episode and it won’t delete the folder because there is a valid video file in there.

For some reason SAB has put two files in there, perhaps due to some de-obfuscation? That’s not something Sonarr expect nor will deal with, you’ll need to troubleshoot on the SAB side to figure out what’s going on.

I have created a ticked for this at:

Thank you for your help.

It seems like the problem was in SABnzbd, so this ticket can be closed:

It turned out that in a recent commit I broke Direct Unpack.
Fixed it now.
If you want a more stable experience, I would suggest to use the master branch. It always has the latest stable release.
But if you don’t mind sometimes things being broken, it helps a lot if you keep reporting them!
