#2283 closed Bug (invalid)

Transmission preallocation problem

Reported by: jefe00 Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 1.71
Severity: Major Keywords:


I went to download a huge torrent, about 50 GB, and when the torrent was moving slowly, I cancelled the download and removed all files, and transmission froze. I forced quit after about 3 minutes of Mac spinning wheel, and when I tried again, it said I am out of disk space. In a matter of 5 minutes, transmission preallocated 50 gb of my hard drive and I cannot get it back??!!?

Restarting transmission or the computer does nothing.

If you delete the files you'lll get your space back. There's nothing magic going on here.

Try a newer version of Transmission; 1.73 doesn't have as expensive a preallocation pass at the beginning of a download.
