#4946 new Enhancement

Watch Folder subfolders determine completed torrent folder tree.

If I drop a torrent into the watch folder, it should download to the complete folder (or to the incomplete, then complete folder)

But, if I drop a torrent into a subfolder of the watch folder, it should preserve that structure for the completed torrent.

/c/watch/Show.torrent > /c/complete/Show/Episode*.avi

/c/watch/foobar/Show.torrent > /c/complete/foobar/Show/Episode*.avi

/c/watch/books/Book.torrent > /c/complete/books/Book.pdf

Quite a simple way to maintain an organizational structure to all these torrents!

I want to see this implemented as well. I use couchpotato and sickbeard and also want to download some torrents manually. To keep everything automatic without them stepping over each other(couchpotato grabbing a TV show and moving it to /Movies with a bad title) it needs separate folders. With auto group settings similar to how Sabnzbd works and other torrent programs. If a torrent is found in a subfolder of the [watch-dir] with a name "Movies". Append the group "Movies" to the torrent when downloaded. Use the group name to put in subfolders of the Incomplete & Download directories.

/watch | /incomplete | /complete /watch/Movies | /incomplete/Movies | /complete/Movies /watch/TV | /incomplete/TV | /complete/TV

I think I should mention that I want to see this in the daemon.

Closely related to #3607, #3811 and #4231, although suggests automatic approach.
