Ignore file if similar file exists

Post by timbix »

I have my rename and move script working well, but when I download files the download tool I use creates 2 files, 1 the final name of the downloaded file and 1 the same name with .part on the end.
Is there any way to ignore any file that has a corresponding file with a .part extension.

FileBot doesn't process .part files, thus you could say .part files are ignored by default.

But if lets say you have A.mp4 and A.mp4.part and that means that A.mp4 should be ignored, then it's time to look into scripting. ;)
