Move completed items to NAS?

Post by JockeSve » Tue Sep 15, 2020 12:24 pm

I'm trying to automagically move completed downloads from local disk to NAS.

My setup:
Local drives "C:" & "D:"
NAS disk mounted at "T:"
(see picture below)

I'm trying to move the completed DL's to "T:\DONE"
It worked few times until restart, after that all DL's remains in "D:\Torrent"...

What am I doing wrong?

All help appreciated!

[SOLVED] Move completed items to NAS?

Post by JockeSve » Thu Sep 17, 2020 5:54 am

By playing around a bit, I found a working solution (Windows 10).
-> Delay qBittorrent at startup!

Preparations:
Make sure Your NAS drive(s) are properly mounted at startup (persistent mounting).
If using VPN: Verify that Your VPS is activated/connected at startup.

Configure qBittorrent:
In settings, disable qBittorrent autostart:

Create an entry in "Task Scheduler" for delayed startup (3 min delay in example below) of qBittorrent:
(Use "Powershell" in 'Administrator' mode!)

Code: Select all

Schtasks /Create /TN Launch_qBittorrent /TR "C:\Program Files\qBittorrent\qbittorrent.exe" /SC ONLOGON /DELAY 0003:00


This delay gives system enough time to complete all network & VPN related tasks before firing up qBittorrent.
Problem solved!
