I have files downloading into my "completed" folder. I need something that will monitor that folder and its subfolders for .rar files and autoextract them. Don't need it to do anything else. Just extract the file and leave it in the same directory. Any ideas?

Check the setting in whatever completely legal program you are using to legally download your media iirc

Well you would be mistaken, it runs on my plex server and monitors the downloads folder on my synology and extracts any archives without any intervention.

pretty sure it's a permissions issue at this point. I have the drive mapped using the synology credentials (had to enter them manually in windows explorer). When I go to add the folder in ExtractNow under monitor, the mapped drive doesn't show up.
