progress dialog for Set Location

Post by bjlockie » Fri Feb 14, 2020 10:49 pm

I did Set Location and move data (to a USB flash drive) so it is taking a while to complete.
There doesn't seem to be any feedback to the user so a progress bar or simple dialog would be nice.

My USB ran out of space and there was no feedback from transmission.
I expect a dialog whenever there is an error.

The type of Transmission client you use matters. The set location functionality appears to have been written to move torrent content within the filesystem. This usually is a very simple operation. Moving torrent content from one filesystem (/device) to another can be done but Transmission was not written to manage that process. I have seen Transmission commit servercide on a busy system more than once. So beware.
