Unrar on complete

Post by jazzman79 » Sat Jul 13, 2019 9:51 pm

i have tried searching various forums for a method to unrar files on completion in the Downloadstation app, but with no luck.
I cannot find a setting in the Downloadstation to do this, but what is the most common method to achieve this?

Thx in advance

if there is no such option it can only achieved by:

- doing it manually
- requesting such function via support ticket
- writing your own watchdog function

OK, thanks for answering, strange there is no standard way to do this, it must be a fairly common request.

Do you know if there is a "On Complete" event from Diskstation that can trigger the script or what app/script can i use to make the watchdog function faster.

I downloaded qBittorrent instead, which support running external programs on complete.
