Bug Description

every time i restart, dozens of torrents go offline with error: No data found! ensure drives are connected or use "set location" - my drives are not disconnected, verify local data doesn't help, Set location rarely helps.

this appears to be especially true with files downloaded using magnet links, BTW. but not all...

Joe (j-b-shirk) wrote :

set location for torrent data does not apply for files downloaded with magnet link, since there is no torrent file. right?

Joe (j-b-shirk) wrote :

files downloaded using torrent files, all have one thing in common:
torrent is downloaded to default browser folder ../download

however videos are saved to a more appropriate folder, e.g. videos; many on a separate volume. in all cases, torrent file is not in the same folder as data, so performing 'set location' is faulty logic because it assumes they are in the same location, or will be moved to the same location.
