That's what happens...usually.

But when Set A takes so long to unrar that Set B completes downloading, all the PAR2 files from Set B will download into the Save Queue also. This can easily be many GB of useless files.

No amount of tweaking the "Relative chance to run" settings will make a difference because obviously UE isn't gonna suspend a lengthy unrar operation to keep going back to save incoming files.

I've been manually pausing PAR2 files since I've discovered this happens, but can you please help me be lazier? :mrgreen:


And Merry Christmas!

I'll check it out, it has something to do with unpack synchronization.

I just imported an nzb of passworded material - UE properly errored out the rar files, but still downloaded ALL the par2 files, none of which were ultimately necessary.

Didn't there used to be an option to load all par2 files except the first one as paused? I can't find anything like that now.

Is it the same question, it downloaded the par2 files during unrar?

No. The rar set was in the error tab because I had no password (or maybe wrong password - don't remember). Meanwhile all the par2 files downloaded.

Just now I downloaded a quick 4GB set - don't know if it needed repair or not (does UE log anything?). It unrared fine, but there are leftover par2 files in the download directory and the UE unpack tab shows the par2 set with message "Complete (output files cleared)" which I've never seen in years using UE.

I'm just gonna manually pause par2 from now on. I swear something is different. I never had so many problems with wasted par2 downloads.
