Resume your torrent permanently after a Deluge error
Sometimes Deluge gives an error and stops downloading a torrent that has no problem at all, even a torrent supported by a lot of seeders! If you select “Resume” the torrent works again for a while, until Deluge gives again this error and stops downloading!
This is not happening often but when it does, it can drive one mad! I searched the internet for a solution, but I found none, and I started some experiments to discover a way of avoiding these ‘errors’, to resume my torrent permanently. Here follow the results of my experiments.
Deluge may give such errors when for some reason it faces a problem in saving the files of a torrent to the default location. Therefore, right click on your stopped torrent and select the resume option, then right click again and select the option Move Storage. Choose some new location to save the files of your torrent.
Most probably you are not going to face problems now! At least this is what happened in my case. In the new location Deluge managed to download a 6 GB torrent without stopping and resuming even once! Keep resuming and moving the storage until you find a location that Deluge accepts…
However, tired of the problems with Deluge, I changed my client, now using BitTorrent.
In case you are familiar with the Deluge Console scripting, check the next page of this post for a different solution that a visitor of TheFreeWindows suggests. I have not tried it, but if the one I suggest above won’t work for you, just go on and the try the other.
Check also this post in case that your Deluge downloaded files disappear (saved in unknown location)!
