Windows / Meaning of option "Copy .torrent files to"?
« Last post by pstein on October 23, 2018, 08:25:01 PM »
I wonder about the meaning of the option "Copy .torrent files to".

I guess it should mean "Copy .torrent files to for finished downloads".

Otherwise it would be a duplicate of option "Keep incomplete files to".

However this is oftentimes confusing. So I suggest to rename to option label to  "Copy .torrent files to for finished downloads".

Thank you
If I have a torrent that is seeding and I move or delete the file, sometimes qBittorrent gives a missing files error but sometimes it just re-downloads the file instead and continues to seed it again.   Is there a setting or way to stop it from re-downloading?  I have too many seeding torrents to keep track of individually if I want to move or delete a bunch of the files.  I'd rather they just give the missing files error so I can remove them from qBittorrent and move on.  Thanks!
Linux / Re: Speed Problems on Linux with QB
« Last post by BigEd on October 23, 2018, 02:59:13 AM »
Think I found the problem. Linux has gotten more restrictive on at least their desktop versions. I remember having an issue a year ago on a server and Rtorrent. Speed issues not up to par. So for fun and giggles I tried the same on my desktop release at home. Edit sysctl.conf and add the following lines at the end....

My speeds are back up to par, even had to slow down my QB settings to avoid it taking all my speed.

### edit sysctl.conf save and issue sudo sysctl -p afterwards ###

I've read about "stand alone" installs of qBitTorrent but I never tried them.

You'll need to search the forums and qBT's github issues forum for how to do that, as I don't know...
Is there a way to move the location of the settings to another folder (e.g. a subfolder "mysettings" of qBittorrent installation folder)?
Windows / Re: Some clarifications about OS cache, Disk cache and gaming
« Last post by Switeck on October 22, 2018, 12:08:37 AM »
Since you have disabled OS caching, turn qBT's disk cache on either automatic mode (-1) or 100-300 MB max size.
Set cache duration to 600 seconds (highest allowed), since throwing away data in cache is pointless if the cache isn't full.
Windows / Some clarifications about OS cache, Disk cache and gaming
« Last post by majin5 on October 21, 2018, 05:34:45 PM »
Hi guys, I am currently using the 4.1.3 64-bit version of qbittorrent under Windows 10 x64 with 8gb of ram with a 12Mbps internet plan.

Basically I noticed since the last few releases, I had issues when loading one particular game Valve's Dota2. My comp would take ages for the initial load and would take even longer for the first ingame load of a map. After going through the usual list of suspects I found that this was happening only when qbt was running as well.

Now I have never had this problem before when running qbt simultaneously, so after checking the forums and alot of googling I disabled the OS cache setting and found that my load times and in game load times went back to what they used to be before.

I would like someone to please enlighten me on why is keeping the OS cache setting 'on' impacting me when I am playing Dota2. Also the game is installed on my primary hdd and I am downloading to another storage disk.

Now that I have disabled OS cache, should I change the disk cache settings which are disabled by default. After alot of reading on the forums and libtorrent I am thoroughly confused as well as what these setting do. Can anyone kindly help me in this regard.
Windows / Upload limit is not working
« Last post by javier on October 21, 2018, 04:17:38 PM »

I have an upload connection of 5mb. I have set a limit upload of 300 kb (3mb approx), but I see that the upload speed is about 500 kb (my full upload). I have search on internet and I have seen several users has the same problem. But none has found a solution.

Is it only happening to me?

Speed settings:

thank for info
