Re: qb transfers 5GB of empty data to the NAS

You are better off just buying an external USB portable SSD for your MacBook. SSD costs more, but will last longer than a platter HDD hard disk drive that has to constantly thrash around as it seeks for file fragments to read and write. Modern SSD drives from name brands are good for 600 to 2400 com...

Re: qb transfers 5GB of empty data to the NAS

So, the way bittorrent works (all clients) is that it will download real data (and not zeros), and it will write real data (and not zeros), but you must be using a modern filesystem like NTFS in order for only the real data to be written, in fragments. If you are not writing directly to an NTFS file...

Do you have the option enabled: Options -> Downloads -> [x] Run external program on torrent completion

Try disabling it.

What is the difference between "qBittorrent 4.3.8" and "qBittorrent/4.3.8" client version string?

When examining peers for a given torrent, I will see some clients identify themselves as "qBittorrent 4.3.8" and others as "qBittorrent/4.3.8", with or without a slash. Can someone please tell me the significance of the slash? Are one of these clients falsely reporting with a fak...

Re: [official]qBittorrent 4.3.8 installer - Built with MSVC 2017

Wrong thread for client bugs. But I cannot reproduce either. 1) Add Torrent File navigation takes me inside the folder of a path that I paste into the File Name field whether it has a tailing backslash or not. 2) Non-existent folders can happen if you're trying to access folders that don't belong to...

Re: [official]qBittorrent 4.3.8 installer - Built with MSVC 2017

If you find it inconvenient to run the setup installer, then extract the fully functioning client from the setup installer, using 7-Zip as explained several posts earlier. PEBKAC is likely because an overly protective antivirus is interfering with your life, or your computer just hasn't been reboote...

Make sure that your download wasn't incomplete / corrupt.

Re: [official]qBittorrent 4.3.7 installer - Built with MSVC 2017

7zip does correctly extract qbittorrent.exe from the install package qbittorrent_4.3.7_x64_setup.exe by utilizing Windows Explorer right-click context menu -> select 7-Zip -> select either Open Archive or Extract Files menu options. The installer is 26.2 MB (27,516,526 bytes) with a CRC-32: 23fbfb1c...

Portable Mode is done by hand. In the "mIRC style" where you match exe and profile folder/config file of an existing install to wherever you want it. https://github.com/qbittorrent/qBittorr ... de#windows

Re: [official]qBittorrent 4.3.5 installer - Built with MSVC 2017

Could you impart any insight into qbt's release scheduling modus operandi?

Specifically, how many days in advance do we know of a target release day? Is it only a few hours, few days, or an entire week or two that a target is set in stone? And where are those declarations announced?
