Is there a script for cleaning up completed torrents?

Is there a script for cleaning up completed torrents?

Am I missing a setting somewhere? I just want them to be deleted after download.

I'd like this as well, torrent removed once it reaches the set seeding ratio. qBittorrent does this but it doesn't look as nice as Transmisson.

What version if transmission-qt are you running? Post download scripts do not seem to be working at the moment with version 2.92 but the unofficial fork does run scripts after download.

Do you want to remove the torrent from transmission but let the data remain? You could do that by simply creating a batch file that calls transmission-remote with the torrent id. Maybe two lines.

Remove the completed torrent and keep the files, I have no idea how to make a batch file for it.

It should work within Transmission. See settings.json (I think you should have one - not really sure about Windows).

I don't think it's that simple, there is no setting for it. If you Google it you find some scripts for it but none of them work on Windows, it's only Linux and Mac stuff.

There's a setting for running a script or not. Of course, you have to write (or find) your own script, as each users needs are going to be different.
