Delete partial Download Fri Sep 24, 2021 3:46 am • by evant
Hello

I would like to delete files that are not fully downloaded and appear with a name like xxx.xxx.download.

I have created the following rule but it does not work although the test indicates that the rules are valid.
What is wrong or missing?

Code: Select all
if (all) of the following conditions are met
    (full name) (ends with) download
    (Date added) (is not in the last) 4 (hours)
Do the following to the matched file or folder:
    (Move) to folder (Trash)


Thanks
evant

Since .download files are partial downloads, they are ignored by Hazel rules since they are incomplete files. If you go to "File->Folder Options", you can enable the option to clear out partial downloads.
