cannot restart stalled torrents

Post by megadee » Fri Oct 11, 2019 12:42 pm

I have transmission-daemon set up to write my torrents to an USB connected hard drive. I unplugged it to do some file transfers and all my torrents stopped, which I expected. I reconnected my hard drive and restarted transmission-daemon thinking that my torrents would resume but they didn't. They just sit there with the status "Stopped" and an astrix next to the torrent number, like this...

ID Done Have ETA Up Down Ratio Status Name
1* 100% 8.3 GB Done 0.0 0.0 0.0 Stopped torrent_name1
2* 100% 6.8 GB Done 0.0 0.0 0.0 Stopped torrent_name2
3* 100% 20 GB Done 0.0 0.0 0.0 Stopped torrent_name3
4* 100% 8.2 GB Done 0.0 0.0 0.0 Stopped torrent_name4
5* 100% 6.7 GB Done 0.0 0.0 0.0 Stopped torrent_name5
6* 100% 5.8 GB Done 0.0 0.0 0.0 Stopped torrent_name6
.....
52* 100% 4.1 GB Done 0.0 0.0 0.0 Stopped torrent_name52

The error says...

Error: No data found! Ensure your drives are connected or use "Set Location". To re-download, remove the torrent and re-add it.

So my question is... My drive IS actually connected so why doesn't transmission-daemon recognize this? Also I tried to restart by typing "transmission-remote -t 1-6" but that did not work. Is there a force start command? Is the only option to remove and redownload?
