What happen after automatic torrent recheck if found 0% data?

Post by postcd » Sat May 09, 2020 2:46 pm

I launch qbt 3.3.16 and it began to recheck many torrents, i am afraid what will happen if the recheck finds that there is no data, i want to prevent automatic download beginning, because i may have that data already in different location.

Well just set download speed to 1kbps, wait until its all done and just stop/remove what you don't need?

I have changed the global download speed as you have suggested. Issue is that i will be likely unable to remember and differentiate for which torrents i have files and which are incomplete/Downloading...

I can not assign a tag to all Pending recheck torrents in order to mark them for manual checking as this is older qbt version (3.3.16 @ Windows). 4.x.x versions do not work for me - program not responding and on Github there seems to be no one willing to help debug this for last months this issue happen for numerous recent qbt versions.

Can you please also mention the circumstances that trigger recheck of many torrents on program start (happen when i switch qbt version used on my %appdata% profile. This information may help me to prevent such a recheck.
