Apathy?? Maybe.
Is it still functional? It has never failed me w/my compression/encryption (and reverse) needs.
Is it broken? Nope.
Does it need fixing? Not yet
Is it the default utility? Absolutely and for far too long!

Chacun à son goût? Most Definitely!

Hi!
I don't see a 4.4.x thread, but I think it was also happening on 4.3.x.

Recently I noticed that recently when I press the browse button in the add torrent window, I get navigated to a folder that is the parent folder of whatever was in the path field (unless it's a drive root). This feels like bug to me, at least I'm hoping it's not a feature. Because it's not very practical to do this. Especially when there are several other folders in this locations so it takes a bit to find the folder I was interested in.

Also the non existent folder notification is displayed all the time erroneously. Claiming for all folders that they don't exist, even though they're there.

Wrong thread for client bugs. But I cannot reproduce either. 1) Add Torrent File navigation takes me inside the folder of a path that I paste into the File Name field whether it has a tailing backslash or not. 2) Non-existent folders can happen if you're trying to access folders that don't belong to you, such as a portable harddrive from another computer. Run qbt As Administrator or take ownership of the folders. Respond to this comment in a different forum thread or open an Issue on github. /end
