Thank you for your prompt attention. I understand how it works now. However it will become a challenge to separate good entirely downloaded files from the files I didn't request to download. In my case I've selected about 50 files for download out of 1100. And I'm getting somewhat 300 files in the receiving folder. I used uTorrent before. And it din't create files that I haven't requested. Can something be done about that?

As an improvement you could also add a feature to append something to the file name if file is not completely downloaded. For instance uTorrent appends .!ut to the filename and removes .!ut after the file is done. I found it very convenient.

Thank you.

I (a different user than the one that created this ticket) support this ticket....I think that the least deluge could do would be to delete the extraneous file pieces at some point - maybe when the user removes the torrent, or when the download is complete (though this would clearly affect seeding).
