#5733 closed Bug (invalid)

*.resume files have download directory hardcoded

Reported by: Pyroh Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: CLI Version: 2.83
Severity: Normal Keywords:


The *.resume files present for torrents in /home/$USER/.config/transmission-daemon/resume/ have the value of "download-dir" set into them at torrent add time.

I found this out when I wanted to change my torrent download directory from ~/Torrents to ~/torrents, and transmission complained that it couldn't find them. All I needed to do was replace all old directory instances with the new one, which was thankfully in plain text.

I'm wondering what the reasoning is behind this, because to me it just limits flexibility and introduces behavior the user would not expect.

If you want transmission to move all the files from one directory to another on download directory change, that is not going to happen. Download directory setting influences newly added torrents, not existing ones which will stay in old place. If you want to move all you downloaded files from one place to another, use "Set location..." menu option or --find transmission-remote argument.
