Proper file paths for Sonarr & SABNZBD setup

Hello everyone,  I am having a ton of trouble getting SABNZBD working correctly with sonarr. Everything downloads properly and Sonarr can see the file is downloaded however it cannot move the file. I am getting errors such as.

Import failed, path does not exist or is not accessible by Sonarr: /downloads/completed/TV/Chicago.PD.S02E07.1080p.BluRay.x264-SHORTBREHD 

My Sonarr mapping is as follows:

/mnt/   -> /mnt/
/config -> /mnt/user/appdata/binhex-sonarr
/data   -> /mnt/user/Downloads/
/media  -> /mnt/user/TV Shows/

My SABNZBD mapping is as follows:

/downloads            -> /mnt/user/Downloads/
/incomplete-downloads -> /mnt/user/Downloads/incomplete/
/config               -> /mnt/user/appdata/sabnzbd

Inside of SABNZBD i have the following folders setup:

Temporary DOnwload folder: Downloads/incomplete
Completed download folder: /downloads/completed

note that on the Completed folder is is an absolute folder. If I don't do an absolute folder the transfer error in Sonarr looks as follows:

Import failed, path does not exist or is not accessible by Sonarr: /config/Downloads/completed/TV/Chicago.PD.S02E07.1080p.BluRay.x264-SHORTBREHD

I know this has to be something with how I have my folder paths setup and I am hoping someone here can help.

 

This was the only place I had access to create a new post if it should be moved elsewhere please let me know.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi, thanks for the quick response, if I am not mistaken I have this set up exactly like you suggested in the last response.

/incomplete-downloads -> /mnt/user/Downloads/incomplete/
/config               -> /mnt/user/appdata/sabnzbd

 

Note that the downloads and data folders point to the same location. inside of SABNZBD I have it pointing to /downloads/completed and if I manually search that folder is is the exact folder that all my deluge torrents etc end up in. And the downloaded items show up there as well. Is there a syntax in setting up the downloads folder that I am missing?

Read the links again, more carefully this time. You have to use the same internal AND external paths. not data and downloads, instead use data and data, or downloads and downloads.

You're right, I didnt look far enough,

 

changing the Sonarr container path from Data to downloads solved the issue.
