#3700 closed Enhancement (wontfix)

Add torrent cleanup feature

Reported by: yanick.rochon Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 2.11
Severity: Trivial Keywords: cleanup feature


When downloading a torrent containing hundreds of files, some files may be partially downloaded, whether because of the file was unselected during download or other reasons. After all the selected files are done downloading (torrent download complete), there should be an option to cleanup all partially downloaded (unselected) files automatically. This feature could be call "Cleanup" from the torrent (contextual) menu.

  • Milestone changed from Sometime to None Set
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Version changed from 2.11+ to 2.11

Unfortunately this is something we won't be adding. If we remove partial files, then the protocol deems the other files incomplete and would have to redownload them.

I understand. Then why not make this an option when removing the .torrent from Transmission (removing the torrent and cleanup partially downloaded files) ? Since the torrent is no longer in the download queue, the other "incomplete" files would not be "redownloaded" again; "Remove and cleanup" sort of feature.
