#3546 closed Bug (duplicate)

differentiate requested and unrequested complete files

Reported by: jidanni Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 2.03
Severity: Normal Keywords:


We see the preference

[*] append .part to incomplete files' names

That is nice, however you still need to differentiate a third case:

Among the files that are complete, there are two kinds:

Ones that we checkmarked,

and ones that we got as bonuses, as they belonged to a fully downloaded block.

So how are you going to differentiate amongst these two?

It is annoying that the distinction is lost -- thrown away by transmission.

I say add some other suffix.

Please merge this bug as I bet somebody else found it too.

Actually there are at least these conditions: Requested vs. Unrequested, Partial vs. Complete. 2*2=4, i.e., at least four different states one could use suffixes to distinguish.

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

#532 is the planned way for handling those unwanted files.
