How do I move ALL my Torrent data to an external drive?

There must be a way to move everything in a batch fashion, I can't "Move Data File To" on hundreds of files. And a lot of these are active files, trying to finish a download or actively seeding. Step by step instructions anywhere? And if I ever activate Transmission when that hard drive is not conne...

Check For Updates not working

Running version 2.84. Check For Updates says I have the latest version. I'm using OSX 10.11.6 The Transmissionbt site says 2.94 is the latest, & runs on OSX 10.7 & up: https://transmissionbt.com/download/ SO -- which should I believe? It would be catastrophic to install the update & lose the version...

Want to use same torrent data files with 2 computers

I have 2 computers and I want to be able to run Transmission from either computer (one at a time) and have Transmission on both computers utilize the same location for its data files & storage (this will be on an external drive with file permissions "shared"). How can I set this up? Also, how can I ...

Re: File structure: Stopped Seeding: /torrent vs /resume vs Watch For Torrents Here

Here's what I'm doing: 1) I drag a Torrent File from "inactive" into "watch for torrents here" folder 2) Torrent File will appear in a Transmission popup window. I click "Add." 3) Torrent appears in DOWNLOADING, which is wrong, should be seeding. 4) I invoke "Move Data File To" and point it to the d...

Re: File structure: Stopped Seeding: /torrent vs /resume vs Watch For Torrents Here

Is Transmission only capable of performing a Check Existing Data on one file at a time?
At the moment I have one file Checking and two Waiting To Check.

Re: File structure: Stopped Seeding: /torrent vs /resume vs Watch For Torrents Here

Another confusing item: The toggle says "VERIFY Existing Data." But the status info line in the main window says "CHECKING Existing Data."
How is the user supposed to be sure that these are the same thing?

Re: File structure: Stopped Seeding: /torrent vs /resume vs Watch For Torrents Here

I have discovered a Torrent File which has NOT yet been Added. But it is "Verifying Local Data." I wonder if that process is in an endless loop, because I think I started it yesterday, but then closed its window. So it seems that the toggle "Verify Local Data" is persistant even after closing the wi...

Re: File structure: Stopped Seeding: /torrent vs /resume vs Watch For Torrents Here

What happens if I Trash Torrent File from the torrent's popup window?
Will it remove it from all 3 locations?

What if I manually drag a Torrent File from the Watch Here folder into the Trash?

File structure: Stopped Seeding: /torrent vs /resume vs Watch For Torrents Here

Tell me how to get my completed torrent DATA files to begin Seeding again. Explain this folder structure system to me. Why 3 folders for Torrent files? When I started, I used the options in Permissions to create a Watch For Torrents Here folder, and a Default Location for DATA files, and an Incomple...

Re: Permission Denied

I got NEW downloads working again, but am still worried about the CUSTOM permission issue. Also, all of my completed torrents have stopped seeding. This might be because while fooling around with the above problems, I moved data files into different places. So the TORRENT files have lost their linka...

Re: Permission Denied

I have been trying these solutions and although changing permissions on the EXTERNAL-1 drive to "read write" allowed the download to work, it has created a second problem. I noticed that there were TWO instances of "Everyone" in the Permissions list. The one above said "custom" and the one below sai...
