Torrents containing the same files will be mixed by mistake.

Post by ZZHAN »

If I have two different torrents, which contains a file named "a.mp4" (different file contents). They will be mixed when qBittorrent downloads them. Eventually got a wrong file. I think that adding a "Create subfolder named hash" option maybe can solve this problem.

Or go back to using version 4.3.1 that has the option to keep the torrent top folder in the start up dialog & the reason I refuse to update (and never will) to new versions. Removing that option was a major mistake from an otherwise great software.

You can also create separate folders manually and use different locations for each download. But I like the keep the top folder option the way it was.

Some time a change is not necessary if what you already have is much better.
