How do I pause all torrents when I run out of disk space?

Postby brimur » Wed Apr 05, 2017 1:56 pm

Hi guys, I ran out of disk space earlier and Transmission started every single torrent that was queued to download one by one when the previous one failed. Each torrent errored out with the "no space left on device" message and after restarting the service those torrents disappeared from the queue leaving only 4K and 8K files in the temp directory. I would have thought the default action when you run our of disk would be to pause all torrents? Can I enable that? Thanks

I'll take that as a no then. I don't understand why it would try to continue to the next torrent when there is no disk space.

But how do you download the torrent when no space at all. You just have the option to pause them that's it.

Which torrent downloader are you using?

When the link is in downloading state, click on the link with right button of your mouse and pause it. It won't download.

Btw, you shouldn't be facing such an issue since torrent stops automatically when disk space is full. Think logically.

When disk space is full or is about to get full everything you download or install stops untill the space is made on that disk.
