#2681 closed bug (Fixed)

[Win32] Error: "The parameter is incorrect"

Reported by: sylinen Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 1.3.11
Component: Core Version: 1.3.10
Keywords: Cc:


Torrents of folders containing more than one file return the error "The parameter is incorrect: SomeDirectory?\SomeFilename?.xyz" (placeholder names used here) when the storage path of those torrents is a Storage Spaces drive. Torrents of folders with exactly one file in them work correctly, as do single file torrents of any size. Forcing a re-check does not resolve the error. The particular Storage Spaces drive in question is a 9.4TB simple space, running on 4x3TB drives. The same torrents that cause errors work correctly when downloaded to a hardware RAID0 array.

The drive causing errors is formatted NTFS, not ReFS.

  • Component changed from other/unknown to libtorrent
  • Summary changed from Errors with multi-file torrents on Windows Storage Spaces drives to [Win32] Error: "The parameter is incorrect"

This is a known issue in libtorrent 0.16. Forum post:

I am trying to build lt 1.0 for users to test but it is not working currently.

I think this is now fixed by not disabling the OS cache with lt 0.16 [75dca80ac]
