Re: Preallocation bug?

What's the filesystem on the volume where you store torrents? Sparse preallocation would only work for NTFS. Also, check if sparse allocation is enabled for any given file(s) (as admin): > fsutil file layout test.dat ********* File 0x000200000018f2cc ********* File reference number : 0x000200000018f...

Re: VPN vs "Encryption required"

Again, you didn't state your goals, so there's no "best" here, but if you value your privacy I'd say VPN is always a good option, especially since it would also protect connections that aren't covered by BT encryption, like tracker communication.

Re: VPN vs "Encryption required"

It depends on your goals. BT encryption will prevent people from determining the particular torrents you're downloading, but won't stop your ISP from identifying (and potentially blocking or throttling) BT traffic. See e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorrent_protocol_encryption for some more i...

Re: Preallocation bug?

It could be that copying files from incomplete to complete directory makes them non-sparse, will need to look into this. In case you're copying yourself, tools like ntfscopy might be useful.

Re: Preallocation bug?

For partially downloaded files *not* to occupy their full size you need to set preallocation to 1 (sparse), which is the default. What 0 means is that there'll be no preallocation attempts on Transmission side, but writing bytes past the end of any file (and in this case at the end of a non-existent...

Re: Transmission Script after completion *Not working*

Things to try first: 1. Check that the user Transmission is running as has access to your script. Note that on Linux this usually means access to parent directories as well (for read or read/execute). E.g. # sudo su debian-transmission -s /bin/sh -c 'cat /path/to/script.sh' # sudo su debian-transmis...

Re: Transmission Version for iMac 4,1 early 2006

Based on the OS version, you may find the proper DMG link in https://transmissionbt.com/appcast.xml (pay attention to sparkle:minimumSystemVersion tags). If there's no suitable version listed there, you could try some other (earlier) ones from https://github.com/transmission/transmission-releases.

Re: Transmission nightly

Both build the same revisions but may do so on a slightly different schedule, so just wait a while if that happens. As for the second link, this build configuration is no longer used and will soon be removed since we don't provide autotools build system anymore; use the CMake-based one: https://trtc...

Re: Where is Transmission installed on Ubuntu

Run `transmission-remote -si` to get session information which will contain "Configuration directory:" line in "CONFIG" section; that's where Transmission stores all its information about your torrents and their progress, and where your configuration file (settings.json) is located. If you're using ...

Re: Where is Transmission installed on Ubuntu

The easiest is probably to use https://packages.ubuntu.com/ to find the particular package and view the list of its files, e.g. https://packages.ubuntu.com/focal/amd64/transmission-daemon/filelist. Other options could be googled as well, e.g. https://superuser.com/questions/82923/how-to-list-files-o...

Re: Win10 script torrent complete not running .exe's

To the OP, if you still have this issue consider redirecting the transmission-remote output to a file as well, e.g.

Code: Select all

CALL "D:\Program Files\Transmission\transmission-remote" -l > C:\test\output.log 2>&1
