I formatted my computer and installed Win 10 (was on XP), I reinstalled tixati and imported the config file which I had saved from the previous installation and that gave me my transfer list back.
All the files those transfers were downloading were still in the same palce, in the unformatted partition.
What happened however is that some torrents gave the following error: "edge file missing (force check to override)"
When I forced the check it found I'd downloaded 99% of those torrents, even tho I had downloaded 100%.
In searching this forum I found this:
"edge file missing" .. sounds like you were partial seeding. . . You may have 100% of what you wanted, but did you select all the files?
In FILES tab did you uncheck (priority -> OFF) some of them?
In that case, moving did not include your SETTINGS -> Folders "partial piece" folder which includes partial pieces, dnd_crust, etc
For each file you can have up to TWO partial pieces (for the beginning of the file, and the end of the file).. meaning your piece is the combination of at least 1 file. This is especially true of "tag" files ... maybe they are "myfile.txt" "my_new_file.txt" etc
This is not a bug, but expected behaviour of the .TORRENT specification. Bittorrent doesn't care about the content. It doesn't care about your files. It cares about chunks of data (each piece x piece size.. you see in the main DETAILS tab below each
Now, indeed, this fella is correct, all these "edge file missing" torrents were multi file torrents where I had unchecked one of the files.
My problem, tho, is how do I fix this?
He talks about "SETTINGS -> Folders," what is this, I can't find this.
