#2299 reopened plugin-request

Auto "force re-check" after download completion

Reported by: john_sim Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: Future
Component: Plugin Version: other (please specify)
Keywords: Cc: johnsim3@…


I am unable to find this option at this time.

I found that sometimes files are incomplete eventhough a download is marked as 100% downloaded.

It would be great if the following logic could be implemented:

Triggering event : Download complete

Logic to be executed :

[ Trigger a "force re-check" of downloaded files only ]

Any errors in the downloaded files?

[ If Yes ]

Re-start the torrent

[ If No ]

Follow standard logic (depending on other configurations)

Every piece is checked after it is downloaded so this is pointless. There is either a problem with your filesystem, hardware or bug in libtorrent.

Hello Cas,

Thank you for your time to reply to this suggestion!

I'm sorry but I think you're missing the point here.

It does not matter what causes torrents to be incomplete after a download, it's just a fact that sometimes this happens.

As indicated by yourself there can be a number of reasons for this to happen.

So to not having to check each torrent I downloaded manually it would be great if this could be event-triggered instead (as described above).

From v2.2.0 qBittorrent actually has this feature:

Thanks for your consideration!
