Filebot producing duplicate files with different names

Post by seyso74 » 19 Apr 2019, 23:28

Duplicate files are showing up in the final destination E:/{plex}
Movies will show up twice the exact same file but with a different name
For example: National Lampoon

qbittorrent kicks off this filebot command:

Code: Select all

filebot -script fn:amc --output "D:\qbittorrent\extract" --def extractFolder="D:\qbittorrent\extract" --action duplicate --def subtitles=en,zh --conflict auto -non-strict --def movieFormat="E:/{plex}" seriesFormat="F:/{plex}" animeFormat="F:/{plex}" musicFormat="D:/{plex}" --log-file amc.log --def excludeList=amc.excludes unsorted=y music=y artwork=y "ut_dir=%F" "ut_kind=multi" "ut_title=%N" "ut_label=%L"
sysinfo produces:
https://pastebin.com/NjQF5E2B
Log entry produces:
https://pastebin.com/usSz6VTT


Please help me find out why this is happening

As per log, FileBot is only performing this operation:

Code: Select all

[DUPLICATE] from [D:\qbittorrent\National.Lampoons.Vacation.1983.1080p.BluRay.x264-nikt0\National.Lampoons.Vacation.1983.1080p.BluRay.x264-nikt0.mkv] to [E:\Movies\National Lampoon's Vacation (1983)\National Lampoon's Vacation (1983).mkv]

If you end up with two files like this, then you most likely have some other programs running as well, that do their own thing and copy files in their own way:

Code: Select all

-a----        4/19/2019   6:18 PM     4388505646 National Lampoon's Vacation (1983).mkv
-a----        4/19/2019   6:00 PM     4388505646 National.Lampoons.Vacation.1983.1080p.BluRay.x264-nikt0.mkv
:idea: The time stamp indicates that some other tool was running 18 minutes before FileBot.
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.
