IOException: The filename, directory name, or volume label s

Post by Evo »

Not really sure what's going wrong here.
The command im using is:
"C:\Program Files\FileBot\filebot.cmd" -rename "G:\Downloads\" --format "G:\TV\{n}\Season {s}\{n} Season {s} Episode {e} {t}"

IOException: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect
java.io.IOException: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is inc
orrect

Try it without the backslash on your downloads directory.
So, "C:\Program Files\FileBot\filebot.cmd" -rename "G:\Downloads" --format "G:\TV\{n}\Season {s}\{n} Season {s} Episode {e} {t}"

Getting the same issue again.
If I start the GUI of Filebot up and do it manually, it works a treat. If I do it via command line using:

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files\FileBot\filebot.cmd" -rename "G:\Downloads\" --format "G:\TV\{n}\Season {s}\{n} Season {s} Episode {e} {t}"
It doesn't work. Any ideas?

Same issue, same solution. ;) Just ditch the last blackslash. Use "G:\Downloads" instead of "G:\Downloads\".

Btw are you using 2.5? Or an older version?

This works for me:

Code: Select all

filebot -rename "G:/Downloads/" --format "G:/TV/{n}/Season {s}/{n} Season {s} Episode {e} {t}"
TIP: Always use "/" instead of "\", works the same but you won't run into string escape issues.

Sorry, I meant I was using:

"C:\Program Files\FileBot\filebot.cmd" -rename "G:\Downloads" --format "G:\TV\{n}\Season {s}\{n} Season {s} Episode {e} {t}"


I'm using 2.5 but i'll try swapping the slashes around and let you know in a minute

Ok, it appeared to work. Still got a load of Java.IO exceptions but the renaming worked.

BTW: Any way to create an event log entry or firing off an email to say "TV Show Name, Season 1 Episode 1 has been added to the library" or something similar?

Depends, what IO Exceptions do you get? What does it say? Or is it just warnings?

Well, you can do all kinds a stuff via FileBot/Groovy scripting. The rename() function will return the destination paths. Maybe you can do like a sendmail with that.

Code: Select all

def paths = rename(...)
paths.each {
execute("sendmail", ...)
}
Something like that, but I have no idea how to create windows log entries or cmds to send email from windows. If you find a solution for that then it's on problem to combine that with FileBot/Groovy scripting.

Some HTPC software like XBMC allows other apps to talk to it via telnet or http requests. Scripting supports that as well, check the last view lines of the sorty.groovy sample script.

Found this, but at least on my Windows 7 it doesn't work:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/libr ... 90899.aspx

Like I said, with scripting you can do pretty much anything, but you have to find a working solution yourself... btw what is the purpose of these notifications? Kick-off some other application?

Cause if you just wanna check the rename history. Why don't you just use FileBot?? GUI/CLI all log to the same xml file. And you can check it in the Rename History Viewer in the GUI app.

In Windows you can create events using eventcreate.exe in the System 32. Its quite easy to do:

I'll have a play with the Groovy scripting thing. Never used it before so will have to see :)

Does it work for you? I tried that but it's always Errror: Permission denied.

But if that cmd works for you then you can use scripting and do execute("eventcreate", "/ID", "1000", ...)

Yep it works for me. Make sure you're running it as admin.
Its easy enough to create an event
C:\Users\A185306>eventcreate /l APPLICATION /so Filebot /t Information /id 431 /
d "The program {PROGRAM NAME} - {SEASON} {EPISODE} has been added to the library"
The only problem is that Filebot would have to support the ability to pass the variables in { } to a command line. Not sure if this is something that can be done?

Had to adjust some small things internally so you'll need to update.

This should work with r939:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/filebot ... ebot/HEAD/

Code: Select all

args.eachMediaFolder() {
	def paths = rename(folder:it)
	
	// log rename history
	paths.each {
		def msg = "${it.name} has been added to the library"
		execute("eventcreate", "/l", "APPLICATION", "/so", "FileBot", "/t", "Information", "/id", "431", "/d", msg)
	}
}

Oh wow! :D Thanks a lot :)

I take it this will log for every file it renames?

Yep, pretty readable right? paths.each... :D

Probably an overkill on events, but I guess you can modify this script here pretty easly to log things the way you like it.

EDIT: Brilliant, it worked successfully.

I saved the .groovy script in my program files and ran this command:
filebot -rename "G:/Downloads" --format "G:/TV/{n}/Season {s}/{n} Season {s} Episode {e} {t}" --db thetvdb -script "C:/program Files/FileBot/sort.groovy" -trust-script
TV Show renamed and event log entry created :)

--output folder must be a folder.

\\server is not a folder.
\\server\share might be a folder.

Just find it odd that it works flawlessly on my other pc and not this one. Going to have to do some digging in to my network.

Thanks

Newer versions of FileBot fail immediately if you pass in bad parameters. Older versions may accept invalid parameters and kinda work kinda not work depending on various other parameters.
