#666 closed Bug (fixed)

pausing in the middle of "verify local data" makes T forget about the nonverified portion

Reported by: charles Owned by: charles
Priority: Normal Milestone: 1.04
Component: libtransmission Version: 1.02
Severity: Major Keywords:


This was reported earlier today in a macrumors forum post by TheStu?:

"My only issue with Transmission is that time once in a blue moon when it has to verify data. If you pause all before the verify is done (I have done it twice in the past 2 weeks, kicked myself both times) it 'forgets' what it was downloaded thus far, and unless parts of it are completely done (and that doesn't even work sometimes) it restarts the whole thing. I have had to restart the same 6GB torrent twice now because of that issue."

I don't know if this is related, but it's two other bugs in the Verify Local Data function.

Have a torrent that you seed. Choose verify local data. Pause it. Resume it. --> Expected behaviour here would be to resume checking the data. The download starts again from the point you paused the verifying. Choose verify local data. --> Expected behaviour would be to pause the download The torrent will now check the data, and download to the file at the same time.

I have done this two times, and has both times lead to the file ending up complete in the end, so no data loss.

eisa01: yes, I think you're describing the same bug.

This needs to be fixed RSN, but in the meantime a very simple workaround exists: press `verify local data' again.
