#179 closed Enhancement (wontfix)

No option to warn only against support folder torrent removal

Reported by: SidneySM Owned by: somebody
Priority: Normal Milestone: Sometime
Component: Transmission Version: Other
Severity: Normal Keywords: warning, 1304, pause, removal
Cc: warning


My first Trac ticket in this dev community, so tell me if I'm doing anything wrong.

In the latest build (1304) I'm warned about removing a torrent stored only in the support folder when the torrent is running, but not when paused.

This is bad as a user may inadvertently remove a paused torrent he doesn't have a copy of, and the warning is still necessary.

  • Summary changed from No torrent removal warning when paused to No option to warn only against support folder torrent removal
  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

The night air made me misunderstand the problem. Basically, the warning for removing a torrent which was automatically trashed should be separate from that of just removing a torrent, and should apply even if the global warning is off (or have a separate preference).

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Severity changed from major to normal
  • Status changed from new to closed

All of the remove options will remove the copy of the torrent in the support folder, so in general you have to be careful if you use the auto-delete .torrent preference. The "show warning dialog" options should be enough, as any more options for warnings would get too confusing.
