I have the following issue with transmission. I have a collection of files, which form part of a torrent, some of which are complete and some of which are incomplete (and have a .part extension). I want to resume the torrent, without losing the already downloaded data, so what I did was the following - Downloaded the torrent file - Shutdown transmission then replaced the contents of the directory with the files that I had already downloaded - Restarted transmission and chose "Verify local data"
The problem is it recognizes that the complete files are finished and starts seeding. But the .part files it tries to restart from the beginning. Is there any way to overcome this?
One suggestion was to choose the option in transmission of not adding .part to incomplete files, then renaming all the existing incomplete files, but that seems kind of unwieldy.
Any solutions? Thanks.
