#4727 closed Enhancement (wontfix)

Previously Downloaded

Reported by: collegeitdept Owned by:
Priority: Low Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 2.42
Severity: Normal Keywords: history, duplicate, previously downloaded


As more and more ISPs are implementing Caps, it would be great for Transmission to know if an attempted file has already previously been downloaded. Similar to the Mac AppStore?.

It sort of does this already with data verification... however, many times downloads are downloaded to different locations and drives.

If you attempt to download a file that has been previously been downloaded in the past - a dialog should be presented saying that it has already been downloaded (regardless of storage location)

  • Milestone changed from 2.50 to None Set
  • Priority changed from High to Low
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Transmission already doesn't allow (current) duplicates based on hash. Since people will re-add files to seed relatively often, I think the annoyance of this outweighs any benefits.

Do not set milestones without patches.

If the item is no longer listed in the queue but has been downloaded before in another location, Transmission will not display an error. Which is my point. It would be great for Transmission to monitor what has already been downloaded similar to the Mac AppStore?.

The app store warns you about buying another app, but downloading/seeding is a much more common case that would not need a warning.
