moving completed files between volumes does not work

Post by cyr0nk0r » Thu May 28, 2020 5:43 am

Transmission 3.00 does not respect values for download-dir and incomplete-dir if the directories are on different volumes. OR if it does, I can't get it to work correctly.
See relevant information below.

Code: Select all

settings.json
    "download-dir": "F:\\Downloads",
    "download-queue-enabled": true,
    "download-queue-size": 5,
    "encryption": 0,
    "idle-seeding-limit": 30,
    "idle-seeding-limit-enabled": false,
    "incomplete-dir": "E:\\Downloads\\incomplete",
    "incomplete-dir-enabled": true,

Code: Select all

I have restarted daemon service, rebooted computer, and even uninstalled and reinstalled transmission. I can't see to get transmission to respect the download-dir and incomplete-dir being in separate folders on separate volumes.

I was finally able to solve this.
I dont know why, but transmission doesn't seem to respect the absolute settings from the 'settings.json' on the server if your transmission client has other folders listed as saved download locations.

I reset the 'transgui.ini' file located here (C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Transmission Remote GUI)
Scroll all the way down to the bottom of this file and remove all the saved folders.

Code: Select all

[AddTorrent.<connection-name>]
PeerLimit=50
FolderCount=1
Folder0=
FolHit0=
FolExt0=
LastDt0=
Folder1=
FolHit1=
FolExt1=
LastDt1=
=LastDown
Folder2=
FolHit2=
FolExt2=
LastDt2=
=LastMove
Folder3=
FolHit3=
FolExt3=
LastDt3=
Folder4=
FolHit4=
FolExt4=
LastDt4=
Folder5=
FolHit5=
FolExt5=
LastDt5=
LastDownloadDir=
restart your transmission client and the daemon service on the server and you should be good to go.
