Re: Help understanding filesystems vs volumes on Syn NAS

My main question is why Filebot and/or Synology are treating Shared Folders (NFS) as different filesystems. I thought they'd be treated as the same. Keep in mind that FileBot itself is not doing file system operations. FileBot is politely asking the OS to perform an operation (e.g. hardlink A to B)...

Re: conflict replace gets skipped

If you use --action hardlink and --conflict replace and if source / destination are already the same file then FileBot will still skip the operation since deleting the hardlink and then creating the same hardlink again is effectively no operation: [HARDLINK] Skipped [A] because [B] already exists :i...

Re: conflict replace gets skipped

You'll want to process only files that have not yet been processed. :arrow: Since you're using hardlinks, the link count will tell you if the file has been processed or not.

Re: Renaming reverts back after reboot

If you rename files then they stay that way. Doesn't matter if you're doing it with FileBot or with something else. There's no way to "temporary" move / rename a file which is then undone on reboot. Here's how Revert files via the internal History works. You can use that to manually un-ren...

Re: -rename keeplink errors with "The file or directory is not a reparse point"

1. I want the original folder/filenames on INCOMING_NAS as links so I can continue seeding them without wasting space. You want files on INCOMING_NAS to be links to files on STORAGE_NAS. You therefore do not want folders linking to other folders . The folder linking bit does not make sense if you th...

Re: Using collections in the naming scheme - is this possible?

Yes, the {collection} binding will give you the movie collection name:

Format: Select all

{ collection }

e.g.

Format: Select all

Re: -rename keeplink errors with "The file or directory is not a reparse point"

1. I would symlink each file rather than the parent folder. I see no benefit in moving the files to a new structure - keeping the original file names - and then symlinking the parent folder. e.g. multi-file torrent INCOMING_ NAS\movies\movie.year.group.encoding.blah.blah\movie.year.group.encoding.bl...

Re: Possible to take resolution from mediainfo:

:idea: The {vf} binding will give you the "rounded" video format value, e.g. 720p even if the video height is not exactly 1280x720 pixels.

:idea: {vs} will give you the video source. See Source Media {vs} and {source} for details.


e.g.

Re: -rename keeplink errors with "The file or directory is not a reparse point"

I can see some history but not enough to make it worthwhile to revert and re-do will apply import. So I guess -exec mklink will have to do. I assume historic.f is the original filename and f is the new filename? I want to link the directory not the file. Is that possible? I don't think it's concept...

Re: All of a sudden getting file permissions warning when moving to Nvidia Shield

FileBot uses xattr metadata . If you move a file that has xattr metadata to file system that does not support xattr (e.g. FAT) then some versions of Windows may warn you that this metadata will get lost. That said, I haven't seen these warnings since Windows 7 / 8 myself at the very least. :arrow: I...
