detecting a .nfo.bak as a movie nfo file

Hi, I have several dirs where there is backup of old nfos.
They have .bak extension.

Seems like MC are picking them up as legit nfo files.

Example: 1408.2007.720p.bluray.x264-sinners.nfo.bak
MC detect this as as movie info file, and as I also have a
1408.2007.720p.BluRay.x264-SiNNERS.nfo file,
in that dir, MC detect 2 movies.

I can of cause just make a search and delete all the .bak files, but is MC supposed to pick of a name as a NFO file, if .nfo exits in the title ?

Or maybe give them a dot (.) in the beginning: .1408.2007.720p.bluray.x264-sinners.nfo.bak ? to get ignored

Interesting, it shouldn't find them as valid nfo's but there may be code that is looking for ".nfo" in the full filename, and is assuming these are nfo's.

I'll test in the morning and figure out where this is occurring.
Should have this fixed for the next release out by end of this week.

Testing today and not getting double ups of movies.

Also not finding two movies on scrape if a .nfo.bak is in the folder.

Sorry, not getting the same results. MC seems to be behaving itself.

not sure why it picked up mine, it was some old nfos maybe created by other scrapers at that time.
