Torrents never write/save data; status ends up 'stalled'

Post by freezer94 » Wed May 20, 2020 3:09 pm

Hi. I'm having issues with qBitTorrent on a fresh install of Windows 10 (using a fresh install of qBitTorrent). The issue is this; torrents in the client begin to connect, pick seeds and download speed, but then drop to zero after a few seconds without seeming to download any data. The torrent status updates to 'stalled'. Nothing gets written to disk either. Sometimes the torrents begin to connect again, but no progress is ever made.

The download folder is on a different partition to the default path, but that wasn't an issue using this client before. I have also tried disabling all firewalls/anti-virus solutions to see if there were any changes, but the issue remained. Sure hope you guys can help me out!

The issue isn't with qBitTorrent client. The directories on this hard disk keep setting itself to 'read only' mode so the files are never written. Need to find another solution, sorry for gunking up your forum with this.

Don't worry, it's the kind of stuff that can happen to anyone.
Sounds like a permission issue, so I would start by checking the antivirus settings. I figure it could also come from Windows itself or a bad drive. Hope you find what's wrong. :)
