It doesn't matter if you prefer to use /data, /shared, /storage or whatever.

  1. You set your download location in your download client
  2. Your download client ONLY downloads to your download folder/location.
  3. And you tell Radarr where you want your clean media library
  4. Starr Apps import from your download location (copy/move/hardlink) to your media folder/library
  5. Plex, Emby, JellyFin, or Kodi should ONLY have access to your media folder/library

‼ Your Download and Media Library should be **NEVER the same locations** ‼
