Description

Hi,

I added a feature to the OS X GUI to only verify a few files in a torrent, rather than the whole torrent.

Attached is a patch. I also added a small function to libtransmission.

I don't understand the purpose of this feature. Could you give an example use case?

Sometimes I don't have all the files in a torrent in the data directory -- for example, when running out of space. In that case, I can move the files to the destination when I want to add them, and then only verify the files I added

Another case is when I have a torrent with multiple files in it, some of which I have not downloaded yet. I obtained one of the files from another source (for example, by downloading the rar'd version) and now want to add it to the torrent. With this feature, I can just select the files I added and verify them.

  • Status changed from new to closed

I really do appreciate the patch, but this definitely goes into the bloat category. I really don't see many people using this feature at all.

I know this is an old ticket but i would love seeing it implemented since this would be such a useful feature. Is there any chance that you could re-evaluate the usefulness of this feature/the patch?

Replying to christopherpool1:

I believe verify.c and some macosx files will need some work when #4262 (delete individual files) gets implemented.
