C: prepended to Destination folder

Postby s3m4ph0re » Wed May 24, 2017 9:18 am

Hello

Setup:
- Client: Windows 10 with Transmission 2.92 (14174)
- talking to
- Server: transmission-daemon 2.77 running on a WD My Cloud EX2 Ultra

In the client "Save to Location" is set to "/mnt/HD/HD_a2/Transmission".

When I download on a .torrent file and open it with transmission-qt.exe the Destination folder field is prepended with the value "C:", so the Destination folder now reads: "C:/mnt/HD/HD_a2/Transmission".

I'm guessing the QT client is trying to be smart and "fixing" the path up by assuming the path is relative to the system drive, however it appears that the path should be relative to the remote server (which is Linux based).

Is it possible to stop this behaviour?

Cheers
