Always Force Folder Creation

Currently, the option to create a folder for a new torrent only creates a folder if there are multiple files. This suggestion would add an option to force the creation of a folder--even when there is only one file in the torrent. Avoiding a mix of folders and files provides a better-organized list of torrents and thus make managing torrents easier. For example: The command "dir /ad /on /b" provides a nicely alphabetized list.

I second this request. Alternatively, anyone who can give pointers on getting it done with a script (on linux) that runs automatically is encouraged to. I'm good with python, but never written scripts for qBt before. I'll post my results if I write one.

A couple of reasons for this: 1) on some/most systems, "loose" files are sorted separately from directories. 2) sonarr expects everything in the same directory as the episode to be episode-related (e.g. nfo files, jpgs, etc.), and I've heard some reports of sonarr blowing away unrelated files when it cleans up, if the episode is hanging around loose with other stuff. Yes, this is arguably a sonarr problem, but still, force-a-folder-if-there-is-none is a useful option.

Yes, I am looking for this option too. It is important to have every torrent's contents in it's own folder named by torrent label. Similar to option "append" torrent label to path.

Post processing and metadata fetching in automated solution can't match torrent name since the filename is different from torrent label. Moving file to a subfolder named by torrent label is the only way to make it work.

I was searching for the way to do this too. Sonarr looks for completed FOLDER to import new files. If the file isn't in a subfolder of the same name, it wont import, then have to manually import file or manually create a folder to stuff it in so it automatically imports

If adding this feature , please also allow options to naming the parent folder.

When torrent with same file or folder name, some files will be override, and one of the folder will never move out the temporary download folder, i can not find a proper to solve this issue.
This issue is exist in github as well,

If every torrent using the infohash as part of the parent folder, this issue will be gone.(although the naming will be ugly)

Foldering naming like...
