can i Stop validations for folders ending in '.'?

Post by iansebryk » 28 Jul 2020, 12:08

while i like the validation feature, it constantly wants to validate in a block, which means that some folders that are actually valid, wind up getting 'validated' whether i want them to or not. in this case, NOT. here's an example of a folder that gets generated from another part of my pipeline, ironically from TVDB source as well: 'Magnum P.I.'. Filebot insists on chopping off the final '.' of this legitimate folder name. now i know that Windoze loses it's weak little mind when such things occur, but as a Linux user, this is really irritating. this behaviour aside, is there a way to deselect or selectively choose which files get validated? or can we choose a validation criteria?

You can set the -unixfs flag to disable file name validation:

Code: Select all

-unixfs

If you're using the GUI, then you might prefer to permanently disable file name validation:

Code: Select all

filebot -script fn:properties --def unixfs=true
