Cancel Torrent Creation
« on: March 22, 2019, 02:15:17 pm »
I started to create a torrent, but then decided to change something about it and pressed 'cancel'. The creation hasn't canceled yet and it has been over 10 minutes. Is the torrent still being created despite me cancelling it? The application is in a 'not responding' state.

It's probably still trying to read all the files that would go into the .torrent and create hashes for them -- that can be very slow.

At worst, close qBitTorrent and wait for it to empty from ram and then restart qBitTorrent.
