Description of issue: When SabNZBD downloads large amounts of episodes, in this case 12 - 10 out of the 12 were successfully moved back into Sonarr after processing (via ffmpeg) - 2 others were not. They were fully processed via ffmpeg and ready for collection in the completed downloads folder - it seems Sonarr can’t keep up with them in a way if there’s too many? From the attached image, you can see they are sat in the ‘started’ state in Sabnzbd, whilst Sonarr simply says that they’re ‘missing from disk’ when they aren’t - they are sat in downloads awaiting collection. Upon deleting the files form my complete folder and re-downloading again, it processes them fine.

Upon further investigation, Sonarr is failing due to the file being locked by another process - is there a way for it to wait a while? I’m under the assumption it’s attempting to access the file just a little bit too quick before ffmpeg unlocks it?

That’s just Sonarr not being able to set the write time on the folder, that wouldn’t affect importing of the file.

Sonarr only gets the last 30 history items (for the category if you’re using categories, or all categories if you’re not), if there is more in history than that then Sonarr will lose track of them.

That started state looks like the command state from Sonarr, when the script tells Sonarr to process a specific download.
