qBittorrent appending "*" to torrent names is breaking Radarr auto import

Post by obelisk »

I am running everything in Docker on Ubuntu 18.04 and am having issues with qBittorrent appending an "*" to the end of Torrent names and the Radarr not being able to import them. I have not seen under which conditions this is occurring but it may be when the torrent includes square braces "[]" in the torrent name.

Renaming the torrent in qBittorrent to remove the trailing "*" allows Radarr to import them without any further intervention. Does anyone know why the "*" is being appended to torrent names?

the char * is not a part of the file name
it is linux indicating a file has executing permission.
So this is not the cause for your problem.

If radarr is not importing, it might be your radarr docker doesn't know the path you have your downloaded files saved.

if radarr is doing copying file not hardlinking then it would be your movie path and downloaded data path are on two seperate docker volume mapping not one
