#631 closed Bug (duplicate)

detect when a download has been removed

Reported by: frandavid100 Owned by:

Component: Transmission Version: 1.01
Severity: Normal Keywords:


When you finish downloading a torrent and then move or delete the original downloaded file Transmission starts downloading it over again. That can be extremely annoying if you are sharing your computer and the other person moved the file and forgot to tell you, because you may end up with two copies of the same file lingering on your PC forever.

For this reason it would be brilliant if Transmission could detect what files have been downloaded but are now missing somehow, and offer you an option about what to do: remove that torrent from Transmission, or download it again.

Of course, this would also be useful for partially downloaded torrents. Imagine I'm browsing my downloads folder and see a partially downloaded video. I decide to watch it and realize it's now what I was expecting, so I delete it. I do not want Transmission to start downloading it again as soon as I launch it without asking me first.
