#3128 closed Enhancement (duplicate)

Don't reverify torrents on disconnected drives

Reported by: Tantali Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 1.92
Severity: Normal Keywords:


The idea is that reverification is only useful if the data was likely changed. This is mostly the case when the data isn't in the folder where it's supposed to be. If a drive is disconnected, it is still in the the folder where it's supposed to be and verification doesn't seem necessary.

Therefore I would for example suggest if the data file is in a /Volumes/ - path:

  • don't ask for verification if the drive isn't found in the /Volumes/ - path (but display an appropriate error)
  • ask for verification when the drive is in the /Volumes/ - path, but the data file can't be found

or any other similar solution

(I don't know whether this can be implemented so it works on al systems and not only MacOSX)

This isn't a dupe of #2955, as that ticket only takes care of seeding torrents.

This is a dupe of #2955. That ticket won't only count seeds.

My apologies, I must have misread it.
