#4362 closed Bug (duplicate)

Transmission preallocates too much space with partial downloads

Reported by: bb Owned by: livings124
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 2.32
Severity: Normal Keywords: preallocate, space, partial


Transmission (only tested the mac client) seems to preallocating too many disk space when partial downloading big torrents splitted into several parts (480 GB / files about 25 GB) .

So the interface shows an error, that there isn't enough space for a folder which hasn't been selected to download.

It seems that Transmission tries to preallocate the folders before and after the selected folder as shown in the inspector window.
