Windows / Re: new torrents keep stalling

Had the same problem with torrents stalling. When I paused them they would Error.

Found out that the entire process was being blocked by BitDefender's Ransomware protection. Disabled that and everything was working fine again.

Windows / Re: Best setting for a fresh install
« on: January 05, 2019, 11:38:33 am »
qBittorrent stores its settings in ~/.config/qBittorrent, where ~ is your home directory. To clear the settings, you can remove or, better, rename that directory. You should expect that this will cause qBittorrent to forget all your current torrents, though the actual files in them will remain intact. I recommend making sure qBittorrent is not runnning before proceeding.

Since occasionally qBittorrent can remain running in the background after it seems like you've closed it, you can run this command to see if it is running, if you think it might be. It will output a process ID if it is, or nothing if it is not:

pgrep qbittorrent
To rename ~/.config/qBittorrent from the command line, run:

mv ~/.config/qBittorrent{,.old}
Or, if you prefer:

cd ~/.config
mv qBittorrent qBittorrent.old
