Re: Trackers Not Loading

I'm a Linux guy but Windows may have something similar. Under Preferences and then Advanced, there is a option for Network Interface pretty close to the top. Could it be that it is set to only use the connection when not connected to the VPN? If you select the interface itself and then tell another ...

Re: Folder Names Changing To Letters & Numbers

I'm a Linux user. I rarely see Windows anymore. I did google and found this. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/archive/technet-wiki/53235.windows-10-built-in-tools-for-hard-disk-health-check You can google for 'smart hard drive software' and add your version of Windows on the end, leave out the sing...

Re: QBittorrent & VPN Deal

I use Surfshark. I'm a Linux user and their app doesn't install on my OS so I use OpenVPN to manage Surfshark. I'm sure if you use Windows or a distro of Linux they support, it is easier. Still it works well. I think you can get either one year or two year deals. I have fiber internet and the VPN ke...

Re: Folder Names Changing To Letters & Numbers

Have you checked the drive using SMART software? Maybe the drive is going bad. I have almost 4,000 torrents and over 30TBs of torrent files. I've never seen that type of behaviour before. I'd also check drive cables too. Maybe one isn't completely plugged in or is having other problems. If you have ...

Re: Seeking Help With Folder Permissions

I'd check to make sure the right owner and group can be not only see but also able to modify the directory. You may also need to make sure the group for the directory and its content is set to users. Example that is not set to be writable. drwx------ One that is. drwxrwxr-x You may not have the x pa...

Re: Default Directory For Automatic Torrent Management

I think I ran into this once before. It's worth a try I guess. I usually set QB to automatically load new torrents when I click on them. There is no dialog window that shows settings. I suspect most have this setting as well. This may fix your problem. Go to Preferences. Click on Download on the lef...

Re: Out of space

I recently ran into this issue. I click size to sort them from largest to smallest while in the completed status tab. I then highlight, using either the CTRL and left click or you can select a whole continuous section by highlighting one torrent, then moving to the last one one you want and click wh...

Re: Cleaning torrents based on plenty of other seeders

Those are good points. Most of my torrents are old. A lot of them have very few seeders. I try to keep any torrent I download just so others can get it too, and hopefully seed as well. Of the 3,800 or so torrents I have, almost 3,200 of them are complete. I have one that has a share ratio of over 1,...

Re: Auto shutdown after downloads completed

I'm not sure what you mean by the "nox" part but on mine, it is under Tools in the menu at the top. It's the bottom option 'on downloads done'. If by nox you mean you have no GUI, there is likely a config file option that you can edit. I looked in places I'd expect it to be but can't find ...

Cleaning torrents based on plenty of other seeders

Howdy, I'm running a little low on hard drive space. I put torrents on their own mount point. Linux user here. Anyway, currently have about 32TBs of space available but it is at about 90%. Right now, I can't budget a larger drive to replace a smaller one with. So, I need to make some room. There's t...

Re: Downloads files marked as 'do not download'.

Never mind. After about a dozen times of telling it not to download the files, it finally stopped. I just hope it doesn't start downloading again when I restart QB. It sure was stubborn about it tho. At least now I can share the good files of the torrent. ;D

Downloads files marked as 'do not download'.

I have a rather large torrent that has a lot of files. Some I don't want downloaded. I unchecked the box to tell QB that I don't want those files. It still downloads them. I even right clicked and clicked 'do not download' under priority. Still, it downloads the files again. What do I have to do to ...

Re: Torrents with same name but different size files

I just ran into this again today. I have two torrents with the exact same name but some files are different. Both show 100% downloaded. Thing is, one is wrong. It took me a while to track down which torrent is the correct one. The sizes are close. The bad thing is, if someone tried to download the o...

Track IP of peer a torrent comes from

Howdy, I sometimes get a torrent that is bad. On occasion I can see the IP of the peer it is coming from and block it if I'm watching QB. I end up not being able to get that torrent if I've blocked that IP but if it is a bad torrent anyway, that is fine too. Is there a way to tell QB to track the IP...

Re: Torrents with same name but different size files

I've done similar to that for different reasons and while it changes what you see in QB, it does not change where QB puts the files or the file names. QB still does the same thing either way. My sequence is this. I start a torrent with the default name. Once the torrent download is complete and I've...
