#254 closed Defect (fixed)

ignores non-writable existing files

Reported by: ichigo_ore Owned by: somebody
Priority: Low Milestone: Sometime
Component: libtransmission Version: 0.80
Severity: Minor Keywords:


I had several torrents open with 0.72, then when I quit that and launched 0.80-svn-2190, it rechecked everything but two finished torrents came out at 0%. I was really baffled for a while until I made the connection that exactly those two had been copied back to my hard drive from a CD, which led me to notice the permissions were 444. Changing them to 644 fixed it. The directory doesn't seem to need to be writable.

In this case the work-around was pretty simple, but it could be a pain if you wanted to leave the files on a read-only drive while seeding from them.
