I have six drives and have data on each. Starting and running torrents works fine but if I re-boot, Transmission can't see the data and I have to remove and restart the torrent.
I suspect hardware because it also happens with Deluge and I have just changed OS and it still happens.
Have I got too many drives? I have had seven on this computer and I think torrent clients were ok.
I can do the re-starting and have been but it's a bit of a drag...
Since posting [Before I was searching through the forums at Kubuntu and Mageia.] I have googled again using the title of my post and found a similar post here:
but I can't see how to get 'Move Data File To' - it must be the option in 'Set Torrent Location' to 'Move From \The Current Folder' that is meant.
I was using latest Kubuntu with all updates (not sure which Transmission) am now using Mageia 1 (no updates yet - waiting to see)
with Transmission 2.22 (12099).
SOLVED: Got it to find the data: right-clicked on torrent - chose 'Set Torrent Location' then led it to the 'outer folder' inside which is the actual data folder - selected 'Local Data Is Already There' - then it was on pause (might have been me originally to stop it re-downloading) so I clicked start and it is seeding!
I have marked this as SOLVED but still don't know why this happens, and I think it will happen if/when I re-boot so if anyone can say WHY I would be grateful!
In the wrong forum though - it surely must be software and not hardware?
