Ticket #1843 (closed bug: duplicate)
Path checks before download
|Reported by:||kneekoo||Owned by:|
Linux is very flexible with mounts and this is why Deluge has some issues with download paths. Let's take a look at a real case:
1. Start and finish a torrent on a mounted path, then close Deluge 2. Unmount that path (manually or by reboot) 3. Start Deluge again
The result is a new download from scratch. It will obviously have an impact on torrent ratio - wherever that counts.
Check for the initial download path and if it doesn't exist pause the torrent and: 1. inform the user either by a message or mark the torrent with a different colour (light red?); 2. ask the user for a new download path and also present a Retry button so the user can mount that path and try again (and add a "Solve later" button); 3. create an option to switch between options #1 and #2 above because automatic start-ups will block Deluge from downloading if #2 is waiting for user input
