#2712 closed Enhancement (duplicate)

Allow specifying new download directory

Reported by: m1ss1ontomars2k4 Owned by: livings124
Priority: Low Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 1.76
Severity: Minor Keywords:


Transmission's built-in move data file is pretty handy, yes, but for large files, it causes Transmission to appear to lock up until the files have been successfully moved. What I usually do instead is move the files first, remove the torrent from Transmission, then re-open it specifying the new directory. I also have to do this when I, for example, shuffle around the data files to make room for more downloads. Instead, there could be an option to specify a new location where the data file(s) have been moved without Transmission's involvement or knowledge.

Failing that, at the very least allow Transmission to be responsive during file copies/moves. Put a status bar or something, please!

NOTE: I've only tried this on Mac OS X so I assume it's a Mac-only thing, but it might not be.
