Default My download folder is @#$%&* CRAZY

I'm going to destroy something.

I have changed the folder of the downloads but it's still downloading in another place. In JDownloader, settings, download folder it's written one folder, but the downloads go to OTHER folder.

What @#$%& is happening here?

Please, apologize my "awesome" level of english, I expect you understood me.

Your English is OK, but your coarse language...

Changing download folder in settings won't change destination for links that have already been there, you need to right click the links to change them.

1) If a link is already downloaded, it must be copied to the new download folder.
2) Right click on the package and select Edit Download Folder (or Change Download Folder). Enter the correct download folder and it should be edited into the path for each link.

Note: The package should be closed when you do this or you should select the links to change (but not the package).

3) In the settings for JD unrar or JD Extract, set the extraction directory so something different from the download directory.
For example, for the download directory, I use
N:\downloads\ (and tick "Create subfolder with package name if possible).
For the extraction directory, I use - "Set customized extraction path"
"Use subpath" and the subpath is

Right now this only works for RAR archives in 9781 or extraction and merges in Nightly. Eventually, this is supposed to apply to all downloads. Finished will mean Downloaded, Checked against hash code, Extracted and/or Merged, and Moved.
