Question Best way to keep download list from getting too messy?

I have a download list that I don't want to clear, because it's convenient to be able to "Show URLs" for already-downloaded files. Also because things disappear from the internet, and with the download URL it's possible to dig up some clues about what the link may have been.

As such my download list is extremely long. Let's say I have 100 packages, all from one host, youtube, and they are not "channels" but individual videos (to simplify this question)

I don't want to merge differing packages into one because I think that the folder will be too cluttered. For example youtube videos have the thumbnail, video, audio, srt, 5-6 files in total. With 100 links, one big "YouTube" package would mean 600 files (total # of links x 6) in one "YouTube" folder.

Actually now that I sat down to type this out, it seems merging differing packages from the same host, into a single package, is probably not a bad idea, there's no better way to group packages than merging them using "Move to new package"?

Thoughts?

Well JD itself is not designed to manage finished downloads / keep a history for a long time so I'm afraid there isn't much functionality for you.

Before experimenting with the grouping/sorting, I recommend making a backup of your downloadlist.

JD has a feature to group items inside packages into new packages by hoster.
Now this feature itself won't let you group your complete list into packages by hoster - only with workarounds.

What I'd recommend instead:
1. Go to the bottom toolbar and select "Hoster" on the left side.
2. Now type in the name of one filehoster in the search bar.
3. Now in the results/view you get, you can simply select all packages (Strg + A) -> Rightclick -> More -> Move to new package
You'd have to repeat this process for ever host of which you got items in your downloadlist.

EDIT

If you search our forum for "download history" you will find some similar threads.
Also a user wrote a script which keeps an external history though its main purpose is to prevent you from downloading duplicates.
I'm not really into this topic but you should take a look at it.
