#1591 closed Bug (duplicate)

Allocates large unwanted files

Reported by: duncanbeevers Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 1.40
Severity: Normal Keywords:


Under certain circumstances, such as a torrent with alternating large video files and small text files, selecting only the text files to be downloaded can result in both the beginning blocks and end blocks of the video files to be allocated on disk. This can cause the entire file size to be allocated.

This could be avoided if unwanted blocks were allocated independently, for example, .block18975.bigmovie.avi and .block18980.bigmovie.avi
