qb transfers 5GB of empty data to the NAS

Post by euler »

I decided to use a NAS for my torrents so that I can seed them easier.
But I noticed, when I download a 5GB file, then qbit would transfer from my MacBook, 5GB of empty data to the NAS, to create that "empty file".

I can see that in the Activities Monitor: 25MB of data to 30MB of data transferring to the NAS... when the data is all "empty" or all 0's.

Is there a way to avoid that? I already set qbit not to create the whole file when downloading, but it is happening.
