Just had a comment on that. When I set the download directory it deleted the folders I had in that directory. They were empty podcast folders with the names of all the podcasts that I subscribe to. I thought that was an odd procedure for the program to do such a thing. I'm just glad that I didn't set it to the directory it initially had in there, it seems like it may have deleted the 20GB of files I have in my "Downloads" directory. I'm not gonna try and test my theory, just thought I'd comment on it. Maybe I'm the only one.

 

EDIT: I will say the program is beautifully made, however, it'll be replacing Doppler for me.

It is part of the cleanup code in Pull, when you close it, it checks the directory you set for empty folders and deletes those empty folders.

Good point. Will add an option to turn this off.

Nope- will only remove empty directories. If there are files it will leave those folders.
