Remove torrents after download completed
« on: June 30, 2019, 05:08:30 AM »
I have searched this forum, Internet, and Settings and I do not see an option to remove torrents once they're downloaded. I see the option to exit QBT or hibernate once downloads are complete, but nothing to remove the torrent files. This said and I swear there is such an option in the Linux version of this client.

Seems if I set to stop seeding at some point and set to remove the file, that works.

Wouldn't it be nice to give back to the torrenting community, even if it is a little bit, before removing torrents after completion? Just my thoughts.. Anyway.

Yes, and I do. A) I provide torrents on a irregular basis, not much, but some. B) For every download, there's about an equal amount seeded...how much more should I be giving to the community?

You "should" not give anything to the community. It's a matter of another discussion - I always let torrents seed for some time after I download them, I don't "count"/calculate what I have upladed, downloaded etc. Even if you don't upload a single byte (hit-and-run behavior), no one would blame you (unless there are coefficienst handled by the tracker and having some actual effect).
That being said, I don't miss such an option. You can always sort torrents by status and delete manually the thousands (or so) torrents with ease.
