#5000 closed Bug (wontfix)

Transmission magnet link bug leads to massive torrent and other data loss

Description

Since so many torrent sources have switched to magnet links, I have made every effort to align this force with my own Intertubes travels.

However, after experiencing extremely slow magnet link metadata reconstruction on several occasions, I took it upon myself to empower Transmission with greater magnet link energy than its native capacity has made evident, a capacity obviously inadequate to the task of rapid magnet link reconstruction.

Unfortunately, once I bolted military surplus permanent magnets to either side of my NAS running transmission-daemon, Tranmsission failed to run at all! In fact, I now find *ALL MY TORRENTS ARE GONE!* And not only my torrents!! Transmission has somehow deleted *ALL THE FILES ON MY NAS*!!!

Unless this terrible show-stopper bug is fixed immediately, I shall have no choice but to switch to another torrent client. Surely you cannot fault me for my resolve on this issue.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

This cannot be fixed, as it's impossible to know how magnets work.
