Torrents automatically deleted after paused

Post by Jarski »

Hi all,


So I've noticed this happening for months now. Occasionally I pause torrents so i can force the cache on my NAS to be cleared as they're stuck in my NVMe cache. When I pause the torrents in qBitTorrent to release the files, qBittorrent deletes a whole lot of them.

If I look at the log then I can clearly see in the logs that qBittorrent has actively deleted them for some reason. e.g (I have removed the complete filenames)

I haven't got anything configured in qBittorrent to take any action on them, nothing in Seeding limits.
I use Auto Remove Torrents to handle this. But the logs for that says it has taken 0 action so appears just be qBittorrent doing this by itself...
You can see in between this Autoremove doing its checks, 48 torrents just disappeared...

It never used to do this, but ive just noticed it in the past couple of months.
The big issue is that while I *could* just restore the BT_backup.bak, its already deleted the content for the majority of these torrents so not worth redownloading since theyve already been copied elsewhere.
