#394 closed Enhancement (fixed)

torrent & resume filenames are hard to use

Description (last modified by charles)

using the torrent's sha1 hash as the filename in ~/.transmission/torrents/ and ~/.transmission/cache/ is frustrating.

To find a torrent, you have to grep for the torrent's human-readable name. And to find a resume file, you first have to find the torrent file and then look for the resume filename that matches it.

Most users won't need to look at these files most of the time, but when you're trying to troubleshoot something it makes things very convoluted and feels clumsy and cluttered.

  • Summary changed from cache and torrent files should retain original name, rather than using the hashname to cache & torrent files should use original name instead of hashname

The working names could contain the infohash and the file name.

With just use the file name, it may cause problems when you have identically named torrents.

This keeps going back and forth because it would be nice to have, but would also cause a lot of changes, and never seems to rise high enough in priority.
