How is the ETA calculated?
Selected file size x download data rate = ETA.

Windows / Why show an ETA when there's no chance of completion?
« Last post by Lestrad on November 16, 2018, 07:44:26 AM »
The title says it all. Certain torrents show an ETA when there are no peers with the complete post, and even when none of them have anything but a fraction of the post. What's the point of showing an ETA in such a situation? How is the ETA calculated?

TIA

These are some very valid concerns. I look at VPNs that support port-forwarding very suspiciously. I personally use Surfshark and while it doesn't support it, it has some rapid speeds, especially for torrents.

Valid concerns, a little bit too hard for my brain, but will research these topics over the weekend. By the way, I'm using Surfshark too, the speed is, as you say, rapid, and I read here on medium a good overall review on it. So far satisfied with this software.

I need to keep track of the stats of the torrents I download (stuff like date/time completed, size downloaded, total size, etc...). Having this list serves as a historical record of when I downloaded something and if I've downloaded it before

(...)

In https://github.com/qbittorrent/qBittorrent/issues/4965, there's mention of a way to mark a torrent as "unmonitored". Is it possible to have qB stop monitoring a torrent completely so it doesn't complain about missing files or losing stats?

I think uT had the "stop" button which paused/stopped the torrent and unmonitored it, but I can't seem to find the same functionality in qB.

This is exactly the functionality I am looking for – manually stop monitoring selected torrents, so when you move downloaded files to a different location all torrent data (which files, of what size and when were downloaded) is preserved.
A few months ago when I was moving downloaded files to a different location while qBittorent was running, paused torrent on the list usually stayed with the "complete" status and all mentioned torrent data is preserved even today. I have to add, that qBittorrent wasn't consistent with this behavior and sometimes the data was lost.
Now I see, that after moving downloaded data, when qBittorrent is restarted it always shows "Missing files" status and none of the mentioned above torrent data about what and when was downloaded is available.

So here is the question: what is the intended way of this behavior? In the last changelog (v4.1.3) I see "BUGFIX: When file data are unreachable pause torrent and show "Missing Files" status (temporary fix)". As it says it's temporary fix, what's the final goal?

It is very important to have a way for all mentioned torrent data to stay and be visible in the program, even if downloaded files are moved. I think the way to go is to give a user possibility to mark chosen torrents as unmonitored and/or move them to unmonitored category, so qBittorrent doesn't check for downloaded files at all and preserves all the latest torrent data.


I did this yesterday, move my qbittorrent and a whole list of files that I seeded to my other PC which is on 24/7.

This is different situation, because you were moving downloaded files AND qBittorrent data to another PC so new qBittorrent installation can see all downloaded files again.

Windows / Move Torrents new Copy
« Last post by jriker1 on November 15, 2018, 03:53:41 PM »
I had a virtual machine that was running QBittorrent.  I recently rebuilt it and it's live and running but a new virtual.  I had 5 torrents that were  mid download when I did this.  Knowing the pathing and everything is the same, just the name of the server QBittorrent runs on is different, what would I need to do on the old server to bring over these torrents and resume them?

Thanks.

Generic / Re: Can you get whacked for seeding?

Well, if you are not using a VPN, then your IP address is visible, so of course, you will get in trouble for seeding ..

I wanted to torrent safely, so I chose to pay for a VPN provider. I'm using NordVPN and can say, that I noticed no data leakages or speed drops whilst torrenting. This provider is truly reliable. Also, the Black Friday is around the corner, so if you are looking for the paid VPN provider, I suggest you to check the offers. Good luck! ;)
