Hi guys.

I'm having alot of problems setting up sonarr with my download client. I have tried both deluge, qbittorrent & rutorrent (preffered).

The problem is not finding or getting files downloaded, it is to keep the files so they can keep seeding.

For some reason the .mkv/.mp4 etc files are getting removed ~12 hours in, which causes my torrents not to seed all the way through.


I have tried to remove settings about seeding in sonarr and letting the download client decide. But failed.

I have tried to enable and disable "Use Hardlinks instead of Copy" in sonarr. No effect on this either.

Can someone help me out with this, or give me some directions :)
Thanks!

EDIT: Forgot a couple of info.
I'm running a dedicated server from Hetzner with PGBlitz (unencrypted) 8.6.3

cd /opt/appdata/pgblitz
nano pgblitz.sh

Remove the last two 2.find commands

service pgblitz stop
service pgblitz status
kill.{pid}

service pgblitz start

That's all ;)

Are you serious? :)

Just to be sure:
find "/mnt/downloads" -mindepth 2 -type d -cmin +$cleaner -empty -exec rm -rf {} \;
find "/mnt/downloads" -mindepth 2 -type f -cmin +$cleaner -size +1M -exec rm -rf {} \;

I have the same issue.. I've downloaded same torrent twice (150GB) to seed and find once its downloaded most of it gets zapped. Not moved somewhere, just zapped. I checked my TDrive. Was about to download the files to /some-dir-NOT-in-mnt-downloads but is there a better fix? I do want my transmission downloads to be moved, my sabnzbd, my rutorrent is for seeding only.

sudo service pgblitz stop
sudo service pgblitz status
kill { PID }

REMOVE THE GARBAGE LINES
and change it to the follow lines

cd /opt/appdata/pgblitz
nano pgblitz.sh or nano pgmove.sh

Bash:
  # Remove empty directories
find "$dlpath/downloads/" -mindepth 2 -type d -empty -exec rm -rf {} \;
find "$dlpath/move/" -mindepth 1 -type d -empty -exec rm -rf {} \;
find "$dlpath/move/" -mindepth 2 -type f -cmin +5 -size +1M -exec rm -rf {} \;
Well done ;)

Sorry to be a pedant but I really dont want to muck up a pretty stable build

I am on 8.6.3 and my pgblitz.sh is in plexguide folder and has different content (assume OP was on 8.7 ?)

Bash:
  # Remove empty directories
  find "/mnt/move/" -mindepth 2 -type d -mmin +2 -empty -exec rm -rf {} \;

  # Removes garbage
  find "/mnt/downloads" -mindepth 2 -type d -cmin +$cleaner -empty -exec rm -rf {} \;
  find "/mnt/downloads" -mindepth 2 -type f -cmin +$cleaner -size +1M -exec rm -rf {} \;
So what should that chunk now look like?

I just updated to 8.6.4 because I was having similar issues after the google deal.

My downloads would not seed anymore and the files wouldn't transport.

ok i just did a reboot after the update and redploy. What should I do to check that the files are moving to gdrive and seeding properly?

I have a feeling my file paths may not be correct or i missed something. You guys are really good at this and I feel I am leaving out an important detail.

I have sonarr and radarr pointed to /mnt/unionfs/tv ~/movies respectively. Before, they were point to gdrive/videos/tv shows and ~/movies

The realization that I probably didn't have something right for custom file paths made me move my directories to default setup.

When I had the Google issue, one of the times i mounted my drives i mounted as unencrypted trying to get everything to work but when i saw no change (because I forgot to download everything anyways), i mounted again as encrypted.

At this point, if this doesn't work, i may rebuild. I only have about ten days under the current build and it is my first with blitz and I have learned a lot with this. I still have most of my downloads but I have probably 750GB that is not showing up in /movies ot /tv

Let's see.

i have a movie downloaded that shows up in /mnt/downloads/movies however it does not appear in /mnt/gdrive/movies

i have two tv shows that appear in /mnt/downloads/tv that are not yet in /mnt/gdrive/tv

how do i verify they will be moved? nothing appears in /mnt/move for either category.

There are multiple files that appear in neither path but have been downloaded and appear in /mnt/downloads/rutorrent

i am thoroughly confused.
