#2289 closed bug (Invalid)

Cant rename hardlinked files (which is currently seeded)

Priority: minor Milestone: not applicable
Component: libtorrent Version: other (please specify)
Keywords: Cc:


If you download and then seed a file (must be uploading the file), creating a hardlink to the seeded file, your unable to rename the hardlink (throws a permission error)

If I pause the torrent in Deluge im able to rename the hardlink

Tested with Deluge 1.3.5 and libtorrent 1.15.10 (and 1.16.5 witch is set "lock_files" to false by default), this is tested in Windows 8

To create a hardlink in windows enter command prompt, and use the command "mklink /H C:/new/link/location/file.ext C:/path/to/file/we/want/to/link/file.ext"

If this isnt a bug then consider it a feature request, I've created a thread here:

This is an issue that should be raised with libtorrent, Deluge has no control over low-level file operations.
