Force recheck after a download completes

Post by weslofi » Thu Feb 06, 2020 1:45 am

I recently had multiple downloads that had corrupt chunks after completing. I only noticed the issue because a few were in rar archives and they failed their CRC checks. After that, I forced recheck on some other downloads that were not in rar archives, and a few were also corrupt and had to redownload a chunk.

When downloading 20+ gigabyte files, it's not unusual for a bit flip to occur and having the client recheck before considering the download completed successfully is invaluable. Is there any way to enable this in Qbit?

If not, I will try to put an API call in my post download script to force a recheck, but ideally just having the application verify downloads makes more sense.

Any help appreciated.

(Also, I typed this forum post 3 times at this point after the forum lost data last week, and my login session randomly kicked me when hitting submit. ARGH!!!)

Yes it's possible.
It's in Advanced settings.
"Recheck torrents on completion".

That's all you need. :p

How do I set this setting in the text config files?

There is no Advanced settings menu or section of any kind in the web UI.

Well I just searched for "recheck" in the .ini (config file) and found this:

Code: Select all

Advanced\RecheckOnCompletion=true
I think that'll be it. :p

Advanced\RecheckOnCompletion does not exist in my config file (qBittorrent.conf).

I added it exactly as you showed it, and it works! Thanks, and sorry it took me so long to reply here.

One last issue I see... my script which runs on completion runs as soon as the torrent completes, before the recheck finishes. Is there a way to fix this? A download shouldn't be considered complete before it's been verified because the script kicks off things like unrar, and copying finished downloads to library locations.
