Daemon: Set preallocation to 0

I have a problem where every time I add a torrent, it makes my Raspberry Pi lag. Setting preallocation to 0 might solve the problem, but I can't get it to work.

Code: Select all

transmission-daemon --port 9091 --preallocation 0 --allowed "192.168.0.*","127.0.0.1"
doesn't work. Also setting the variable in the settings.json file (in .config/transmission-daemon) because gets overwritten.

Any workarounds?

Problem solved. Apparently you should close transmission first before making changes to the settings.json file.
