NZBGet, setup map for downloaded files

I’m new with rockstor and have little experience with linux systems. I have two disk on my computer, a small one for rockstor main program and a big one for the data. I installed NZBGet but now I would like to send the downloaded files to a dedicated share on my data disk. In the NZBget settings there is a red button called ‘add storage’ after pushing I can select a share map (i can select here the share I created) but I also have to give the “rock-on directory”. I don’t know what I have to fill in there to make it work.

I hope somebody can help me out, I really like the rockstor.

Best regards


Hi @svberloo,

If I understand correctly, you have installed the NZBGet Rock-on? If yes, you can simply ‘add a volume’ to the Rock-on:

  1. in the Rockstor web-UI, turn off NZBGet Rock-on
  2. click on the wrench icon to edit the Rock-on configuration
  3. Add the volume you want to use (it needs to be created first) and submit the changes. I assume this specific Rock-on supports this feature but I don’t use it myself so I don’t know.
  4. Turn back the NZBGet Rock-on to restart it
  5. This newly-added volume should now be visible by NZBGet.

This should do what you are looking for if I’m not mistaken.

Hope this helps,

Dear Flox,

Thanks for your response and clear description. I solved the problem by using your guild line. Thanks again! At point 3 there is a second field called “rock-on directory”. I used the default path that’s given in de error message (/data/media) that pops up if you leave it open. You have to use this path in de nzbgetprogram at settings/paths/maindir.

Best reguards
