Description

I have added one torrent to transmission-daemon and, from webUI, I have unmarked several files from that torrrent that I don't want download.
Part of my config file:

...
    "download-dir": "/home/xxxx", 
    "incomplete-dir": "/home/xxxx/.incomplete", 
    "incomplete-dir-enabled": true, 
    "rename-partial-files": true, 
...

The torrent has finished and the files was moved to download-dir, but Transmission has created several .part files (corresponding to files unmarked in this torrent) and it has moved these part files to download-dir too:

  1. That files was marked like "don't download". Why Transmission moves them to download-dir?
  2. These files occupy space on the hard disk unnecessarily.

Ok, that explanation justifies that they are downloaded but no moved to download-dir.

They are part of the downloaded file, and need to remain with the files to be seeded.
