Getting a "Unable to resume torrent 'e740cb9a5f6f5508c9e6bcd" on startup

Post by mistalaba »

Hi!

This is more of a nuisance than anything. Everytime I start bittorrent (currently 3.3.10), I see this line in the log:
2017-01-17 10:46 - Unable to resume torrent 'e740cb9a5f6f5508c9e6bcd30a0eafd404c4bcbb'.

I have no running torrents, so it's weird that it tries to resume one, no?

I'm looking through the log file of qBittorrent and I have 3 entries like:
(C) 2022-05-11T10:05:56 - Unable to resume torrent 'f6 <redacted>'.
(C) 2022-05-11T10:05:56 - Unable to resume torrent 'f6 <redacted>'.
(C) 2022-05-11T10:05:57 - Unable to resume torrent 'f6 <redacted>'.

The 40 sign hash starts always with f6, that's a strange coincidence. How can I find out to what torrent is the hash connected?

The hash is the BitTorrent info-hash and its not saved in plain text?

I have installed btcheck on debian to create the hashes from the torrent file.
With this command, I have searched for my 3 hashes in the torrent directory, but found nothing:

Code: Select all

ls /qbt/torrents/* | xargs -d '\n' -I '{}' btcheck -i -n '{}' 2>/dev/null | grep -E "HASH1|HASH2|HASH3"

I went through my incoming files and found one where I deleted the torrent but not the file itself on the harddrive. I deleted the files too, now I only have two unable-to-resume messages. I guess the other two errors are also files without torrent.

There seems to be a temp directory:
~/.local/share/data/qBittorrent/BT_backup/f6....fastresume

The .fastresume files are the added magnet links to qBittorrent. Most of them have a corresponding torrent file in the same folder, but for some magnet files the torrent could not be downloaded and some magnet files give this error. Idk why. Delete them and the error disappears.
