#839 closed bug (Fixed)

After renaming download directory, it cannot be moved.

Reported by: Owned by: andar
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Unknown Version: 1.1.4
Keywords: move storage, rename files, lampshades Cc:


Every multi-file torrent downloads into a directory with the same name as the torrent. If I rename that directory (In the 'Files' tab), then I later want to move the directory (Using rightclick-'Move Storage'), it fails to do so. I'm guessing this is because it's trying to move using the original name.

[The move after completion fails in the same way -- if I rename the directory while downloading, it doesn't move it once it's done.]

=============================== Completely Hypothetical Example ===============================

Torrent named "Sexy lampshades hothotxxx.torrent", containing some very sexy lampshades.

Initially it is set to download to:

/home/anonymous/NewDLs/Sexy lampshades hothotxxx/

Then I rename it (in 'Files') to conceal my lampshade fetish:

/home/anonymous/NewDLs/Tax Reports 2002/

However, I later decide that I want to move it to a different location, while still being nice and seeding to the world, so I try to 'Move Storage' to an existing directory:


Then I would ideally have lampshade fetish material deeply hidden in my work folder, at

/home/anonymous/Work/Tax Reports 2002/

However, the move has no effect and it remains in NewDLs.
