#648 closed Bug (wontfix)

Doesn't automatically resume (auto)paused torrent when checking additional files for download

Reported by: Malesca Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 1.01
Severity: Minor Keywords:


I downloaded a single file out of a torrent containing many (by selecting that file and choosing "Only Check Selected").

That file completed downloading, then completed seeding and was automatically paused (I've configured Transmission to stop seeding at a specific ratio).

When I later opened the torrent in the Torrent Inspector and checked some additional files, the torrent didn't automatically resume. Would be nice if it did.

I suppose it could be debated whether paused Torrents should ever resume without doing so explicitly, but I think checking additional files for download in an automatically paused torrent generally means that's what you want. Not sure if the same behavior is expected if the file was paused manually, but probably.

If it's paused, this would be counter-intuitive. Of course if it's seeding it will switch to actively downloading. The interface to for things such as "restart paused transfers when changing from done to incomplete" is way too confusing and would just lead to bloat.
