QBittorrent wants to access the files in the Downloads folder

Nice!

It constantly pops out of the window. I always pressed OK. Nothing changes. What to do with these?

It does this once for EVERY active torrent. And it does this EVERY time you close and re-open the app. I went from 4.3.9 to 4.4.2 and that's when I first noticed it. Still happens in 4.4.3.

For me it's asking for acces to a removable volume because that's where I have my downloads going.

Is it really f^%$#ing necessary because it's absolutely bloody annoying as f%$#!

when I put in the Terminal Command, I get this:

Password for michaeljonas:
chsh: Credentials could not be verified, username or password is invalid. Credentials could not be verified, username or password is invalid.
Mac-mini-3:~ michaeljonas$ codesign -s - --deep /Applications/qbittorrent.app
/Applications/qbittorrent.app: resource fork, Finder information, or similar detritus not allowed

Any suggestions will be more than welcomed.
