Re: Transferring systems

If you want to do this without massively rechecking all your torrents, you must save all the data within the transmission-daemon working directory. (Including resume files and torrent files with some hash in the filename.) On Debian based systems this would be /var/lib/transmission-daemon/info/ .

Re: Cache size on a NAS

I use a "cache-size-mb" setting of 16 and AFAIK there is no optimum cache size. If you are downloading many torrents at a time a larger cache size might prevent some fragmentation of files, but THE thing concerning wear and tear of your drive is spin up/down so try setting your drives to a long a ti...

Re: Transmission does not count existing local files as "Downloaded"

You have to make sure that the download location and the location of the downloaded files match. If they do then a recheck should start automatically every time you add a torrent. If not, set the download location of the torrent and do a recheck manually.

Re: Multi-user web interface.

Ah, you necro-posted on this topic. As you can tell from the dates on the previous posts: It is not going. The use-case is extremely niche and the proposed changes to the software are hard and intrusive. The easiest solution would be to run a separate daemon with a separate configuration for each us...

Re: progress dialog for Set Location

The type of Transmission client you use matters. The set location functionality appears to have been written to move torrent content within the filesystem. This usually is a very simple operation. Moving torrent content from one filesystem (/device) to another can be done but Transmission was not wr...

Re: How to create torrent in Transmission

Hello, I am new to Transmission, I used to use a different torrent program but my NAS (Qnap) supports Transmission. I am able to download and seed a torrent, but I cannot find how I can seed my own files for others, to trackers. I looked everywhere on the Web Client, I downloaded the Transmission R...

Re: How do you rename files and still seed?

You can only do that from within Transmission if the version/client supports it. See viewtopic.php?f=8&t=12555 for example.

Re: Magnet > file selection (ease of use)

Transmission is missing a stage in the total sequence of downloading a torrent. That is the exact moment when the metadata of a magnet is complete. Which is also the moment when you are able to select which files you actually want.
