#3641 new bug

Error Downloading to Some Directories Windows

Reported by: Doadin Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: Future
Component: GTK UI Version: develop
Keywords: Cc:


I tried downloading some torrents to my F drive. When added the torrents went to an error state and said "The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect". After a few failes trying to use "move download folder" to get it to work, at one point I got and error after clicking "move download folder" that said "The folder contents could not be displayed" "Error when getting information for file "E:\Program Files\Deluge\F:":Input/output error"

seems like maybe for some reason it was trying to use the deluge install dir + selected location? not sure what happened. Not sure if this was what was happening from the start or not.

No idea if it is related or not but looking in the conf files I notice: gtk3ui.conf:

"choose_directory_dialog_path" has \ \ between each dir.


"download_location_paths_list" has 2 items "F:" which did not work and "E:\ \VMs" which I have used many times in the past and does work. "download_location" after seeing the other parts and tring to set it to F looks like "F:\ \"

After trying to move the files again but not use the saved locations it moved to "F:\"(shown in the move download folder" dialog, just fine.

so maybe the saved locations is not adding the "\" or "\ \" needed for locations in the root of a drive?

I have done a little more testing and adding a root of a drive to the saved locations or favorites, idk what they are called(download_location_paths_list) but the drop down of locations. if you add the root of a drive it adds "F:" F: does not work as a location "F:\" does. just using the file picker or w.e. just chooseing not with saved locations it comes out as "F:\" so seems like for some reason the saved location for drive roots removes end \. and locations are not valid without the \.
