#225 closed bug (Duplicate)

Deluge downloads more files than i selected to

Reported by: n0gabor@… Owned by: markybob
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: 0.5.x Version:
Keywords: Cc:


I downloaded a torrent containing more files. I selected a few for normal priority, and the others were marked as "don't download".

Deluge downloaded the files I selected, but few others appeared in the download directory. I have to manually check which was downloaded correctly, because I use full allocation so I couldn't guess from the file sizes.

I use Ubuntu 8.04 and deluge from your site.

I Have the same issue. For the moment i downgrade to 0.8.6 where there's no problem.

Nota: for non-windows users, using du -h file1 file2... in command mode will reveal the real size of the targeted files, thus avoiding to try to open the files one by one.

And by the way, take a look at the FAQ :

Deluge sometimes creates files that I didn't ask it to download. Why?

Deluge handles files as pieces, not as individual files. This gets tricky, as sometimes the same piece is shared between multiple files. So if you tell Deluge to download a file, it'll download all of the pieces within that file, and if one of those pieces is shared with another file, that file will also be created, although not necessarilly entirely downloaded.

I see that it is in the FAQ, but it is a BUG anyway. A nasty behaviour. The app should not create the file when i not selected to, maybe when the download is finished deluge should delete the retrived "broken" files, or something.
