Bug Description

Binary package hint: transmission

I store all torent downloads at my external hard drive. Sometimes I forget to connect it and transmission starts to download torrents again. In a few seconds it tries to save data and fails. As a result transmission has to check local data every time I forget to connect drive.

Transmission should be tolerant to such situations. E.g. if destination file path begins with "/media/" then transmission should pause torrent until "/media/drive" exists and then check last modification time of files. Only if it is not equal to previously saved time then it should be checked.
