Windows / qBittorrent character limit issue?
« Last post by Vectraat on Today at 05:27:13 AM »
So, I've been using qBittorrent over the past 6 months and I've noticed that it doesn't seem to play nice with .torrents that have several long character count folders/files/.NFOs. The client will say 100%, but many of these files are dumped into my pre-defined "qBittorrent Incomplete" folder. I'm told that: "qBittorrent uses file APIs that are restricted to 256 characters."

So, could this explain why these downloads with 5+ folders, 5+ .NFO files and 5+ other files (All with long file names) aren't downloading properly? Some end up in my "Complete" folder, while others end up in my "Incomplete" folder.

I'm told that when I click the magnet link I should alter (reduce the file name/character count) to ensure a proper download.

Does this sound accurate? However, I'd prefer to keep the file names intact for various reasons.

Suggestions / Re: Tracker Reannouce
« Last post by cheesetrap on Today at 03:37:57 AM »
These two threads I'm posting in are some of the first results in Google for a relevant search about 'qbittorrent force reannounce not working', so I've registered just to put the working answer here.  The problem is a user interface bug with qbittorrent, at least up to version 4.0.3 (I don't use the latest because it had a different problem for me). Switech has given some of the relvant information her, but stopped short of giving a working answer, so here it is.

The solution is to select a tracker, any tracker, in the list, and click one of the big arrows at the right side of the window.  This changes the tracker tiers so that instead of all being tier 0 (as they start out), they change to 1/2/3/4 etc.  The problem is that qbittorrent will only update a single tracker from each tier (which is fine) but it puts all trackers in the same tier (which is a bug).

As soon as you click one of those arrows everything will work great :)

Kind regards,

I guess I should add this:
https://github.com/qbittorrent/qBittorrent/issues/7634#issuecomment-339874865
...Is a list of examples of ways qBT and Deluge can delete data.
Many/most of them were for qBT v3.3.x using libtorrent v1.0.x rather than libtorrent v1.1.x -- Deluge (before v2.x) as well used libtorrent v1.0.x, so it's not "safe" either.

Having said that, I've had uTorrent chew up a few files because of moving them to too-small drives and/or duplicate filenames.

I can see from numerous threads on the web that this is an age old problem that is not at the top of the programmer's to-fix list. It works sometimes, which is like not working at all; shame, as it is a much needed feature.

Find that "somewhere" please.

I've seen problems with qBT's file handling in libtorrent v1.0.x and older as well -- mentioned at qBitTorrent's github issues, although perhaps not as severe as the "teething problems" qBT v3.4.0 betas and v4.0.x had:
https://github.com/qbittorrent/qBittorrent/issues/6137   "Since the torrent is technically active while being force checked, it can even connect to peers/seeds and download/upload parts of the torrent. This is broken behavior."
https://github.com/qbittorrent/qBittorrent/issues/127   "Just lost over 10,000 files due to this error. Can't believe this hadn't been fixed yet."

@Switeck: So, your advice is to use latest possible libtorent (current 1.1.9) with qbt 4.1.2?
I'm a little bit afraid to use libtorrent 1.1.x as I read somewhere that its use with qbt possibly corrupts torrents.
