How do you rename files and still seed?

Post by PN Fan » Mon Feb 03, 2020 3:05 pm

I'm using Transmission on Ubuntu. I know that I can move the folder using the "Set location" option, but how can I rename the folder and the files in the torrent and still be able to seed to people. I've tried renaming the files in the regular Ubuntu file browser, but that stops the seeding because the name of the files no longer matches what they should be in the torrent.

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