#1942 closed bug (Duplicate)

Many torrents produce a "parameter is incorrect" error during recheck

Reported by: MrM Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: Future
Component: Windows OS Version: 1.3.3
Keywords: parameter error windows Cc:


I'm in the process of switching from uTorrent to Deluge. To be able to do that, I need to import old torrents into the new client. I've now imported about a hundred, 20 of which failed to start seeding.

I open the torrent file, point it to where the files are on disk, and then force a re-check. Somewhere during the check (the percentage varies with each torrent), it fails with the following message: "The parameter is incorrect: <path+file>". The torrent is then put in an error state, stuck at the percentage it failed at.

This happens at random positions and with random torrents (about a quarter of the ones I imported). However, it is completely repeatable. If I restart the daemon, all the same torrents fail at exactly the same positions.

OS: Windows Server 2003 SP2 Deluge version: 1.3.3

If you need any more information just let me know, I'll be happy to provide it.

I'm in the same situation and encounter the same problem. Difference is that I've only tried it with 1 torrent and each time it fails with the above error message.
