Is anyone able to help point me in the right direction to the code that was changed to fix this issue?

Synology Download Station is based on Transmission and is having the same problem since DSM 5.1.

I have raised this with Synology several times to no avail. Some help from the Transmission team would be greatly appreciated.

In summary, the ENVIRONMENT VARIABLE : TR_TORRENT_DIR returns the incomplete/temp path and does not point to the GUI specified download location.

if (script && *script)
        tr_strdup_printf ("TR_TORRENT_DIR=%s", tor->currentDir),

Take a look at libtransmission/torrent.c and check your code against trunk wherever currentDir is set.

Check your logfile for error messages. Please use the forum for support issues.
