#232 closed Defect (wontfix)

Moving torrent data file blocks osx ui

Description

When moving torrent data file to another disk (otherwise too, but is noticeable) the choose location dialog blocks the interface until the data has been moved. The bigger the file and the slower the connection to the disk, the more severe this becomes!

It shows a single dialog, and then uses Apple's move file api. I don't understand what you expect to be changed?

This issue needs to be addressed. The code that actually moves the file data, (it doesn't matter if it's Apple's api or not) should be called in a background thread. This is why developers now have blocks and GCD.

If you move a large torrent, or even a torrent onto a network volume, then Transmission becomes unresponsive and a user will most likely force quit the application.
