#261 closed Bug (fixed)

Transmission reports "Not enough remaining disk space" even the space already allocated on the disk

Reported by: Sikachu Owned by: somebody
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Mac Client Version: 0.80
Severity: Normal Keywords: disk space allocation


I selected to download only 4 file from one of the torrent, and it took about 4.56GB disk space. I started it, let it allocate disk space, and then I stop the download. So, after the disk was allocated, I have 1.09 GB left on my computer. Next, when I want to resume my download, it shows this message:

So, I wondered that the disk space already alocated or not, so I went to the folder that this torrent will download to, and found out that the disk space was already allocated.

And here's my torrent in Transmission:

I have 2 hypotheses about this problem

1: Maybe Transmission mistakenly report not enough space because it rechecks the current disk for remaining space, without knowing the fact that it already allocate the space. So, 1.09GB remaining would not be sufficient for 4.9GB download for sure.

2: Transmission did count the space that it already allocated, but it count the remaining space for the whole torrent file, not just what I selected. So, 1.09GB+4.9GB=5.99GB is not enough for 13.7GB (the whole file) download.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

In [2438] it will now consider existing file size, but will have to ignore non-selected torrents in the calculation since the final allocated value is unknown. It's a better solution then giving flat wrong values, though.
