#906 closed Bug (fixed)

Making a new torrent folder scans the entire home directory

Reported by: compotatoj Owned by: charles
Priority: Normal Milestone: 1.20
Component: GTK+ Client Version: 1.11
Severity: Normal Keywords:


When making a new torrent in the GTK+ interface, the "Select Folder" menu is disabled, so one must click the radio button to create a torrent folder. Doing this automatically starts scanning one's home directory and will freeze Transmission for a very long time if one's home directory is very large.

Basically, there is no way to select a folder without having Transmission first scan the entire home directory and calculate the file size and number of pieces.

I agree. I think it should be scan on directory/file when you selected to create a new torrent, not entire home directory for no reason.
