Although I deselected a whole folder and its files to be downloaded from a .torrent it download (create) the folder in my hard drive. The within files are not downloaded, but the folder is created.

Running Ubuntu 8.10 updated to 2009-01-27 and Deluge 1.1.1

Thanks and congrats for the great app

This is probably a "side-effect" of the torrent protocol itself. For example if you deselect a file that has a common block with another file you want download the system has to create both files to download the whole block. Depending on the torrent, the block size can even be several megabytes, so it's a very common thing. I'm not sure if this behaviour regards folders too, but it wouldn't be a surprise.
