Delete folder from source after moving the file

When SABnzbd finishes downloading a movie, it puts it in a folder. When Radarr moves that movie its final destination, it should remove the folder, but it isn't.

Does the SAB-created folder still have contents in it? Radarr will delete the previous folder if it's empty, but not if there are files left-over.

i would be very careful with this. Depending on the situation, some movies are downloaded without a folder. Radarr needs to be able to handle those situations or else you run the risk of deleting the parent/root folder.

Happens to me, crap files are left over like samples, idx, nfo, ect files. I always have to delete folder manually.

I don't think this feature is needed from the radarr side of things. I use Sabnzbd to download, and include these extensions below in the cleanup list, radarr then deletes the folder no problem.

.nfo, .sfv, .nzb, .srr, .info, .idx, .txt, .com, .db, .md5, .par2, .png, .1, .jpg, .jpeg, .url, .lnk, .html, .ini, .bat, .com, .exe, .scr, .sample
