Sabnzbd Folders – Changing Folder Directories / Adding Watched Folder


Sabnzbd has default folder locations that are generated during the install. Some users may want to change these folders. Other users may watch to add a Watched Folder. To change/add the folders, simply navigate to your Sabnzbd http://localhost:8080/sabnzbd/ or http://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:8080/sabnzbd/ then click on “Config” then click on “General”.

You will find a few different folders to change:

  • The first folder is the “Temporary Download Folder”, where items are stored during downloads.
  • The second folder is the “Completed Download Folder”, where items are stored after downloading/unpacking/repairs.
  • The last folder is the “Watched Folder”, this is folder that Sabnzbd constantly checks for nzb files. Instead of navigating to Sabnzbd and click on “Add NZB”, you can simply copy your nzb to this folder and Sabnzbd will queue it for download. Using a watch folder allow you to use search providers that are not supported by Sabnzbd. You can simply set your NZB watch folder to your default download folder.
