Transmission 3.0 torrent File badly renamed :(

Post by pcp » Sat May 23, 2020 2:12 pm

Hello there,

A new problem with transimisison 3.0:

when you add a torrent file to transmission it create a copy of this torrent file in: macos/user/username/library/application support/transmission/torrents/

before version 3.0 the created torrent was named exactly like you torrent file, for example : if your torrent file was : your torrent file was file1.torrent

so you can easly match the file and the torrent.

Now with version 3, your is corresponding to an incredible name like 0b04saghh78derdhf5s.torrent

so you can't match files and their torrent files.

that's really bad :( i really need to make this 1 or 2 times a year to see i have if files taking space in my hard drive who is not seeded. It's clearly very usefull to clean your hard drive by deleting not seeded files! last time à did that i got back about 1,2TB !

I updated yesterday too and discovered in horror that all my 800 .torrent files had been renamed! I have different reasons to @pcp, but I also need the files to retain their name and not be renamed into something encoded (I'm cataloguing my torrent files and pulling imdb data based on the filenames) but portability and manageability is another reason. Any chance that we can revert to the old filename schema?
