Force check all torrents on a new source drive

by Guest on 2019/04/13 02:15:35 PM    
I am changing over a boot drive to run Tixati from a bootable SSD to the
torrent files and content files stored on D:

I have changed the information on the Location setup to D: as best I can.
The program is running from the SSD but wants to force check all torrents.

Is there a way to do this in batch?  Have I missed a setting?

I have done one in the series manually running force check and that
activates the torrent.  That process would be very long if needed for the whole torrent list.


 On the Locations Settings:

Default Download loacation  is set to D: tixatidownloads (root)

Upon completion move to this location  D: tixati downloads (root)

Incomplete Piece storage Location  C: Users\lon   (I used the default on this one)

On Metadata:

Save a torrent file when torrent completes

 Unsure where to direct or select this Meta data which is seet to
c: tixatidownloads.

  tixatidownloads is used for all the Tixati files except the program.

Should have logged in as myself.

I have begun doing the manual process to move the exisiting torrents and merge
as the Tixati prompts have it.  

Select file in the transfers window > Options >  click MOVE box >  find the
D: drive where my torrents and content folder now resides in Root Select and Merge,
then start Torrent seeding.

A long way to go but I'll start today.

No replies yet on a command to merge all to drive D:  so I'd submit that as a feature request.

You do know you can do multiple at once?

If all your torrents were in D:/Somefolder and are now in E:/NewFolder then click on one of the transfers.  Hold the shift button and click another torrent in the list.  All torrents between will also be highlighted.  If you hold control and click it will individual add or remove the torrent to the selection.

Then right click any of the highlighted transfers and click Local Files->Location->Move->Select E:/NewFolder.

Done. All the transfers will do that move.

Nope I didn't know any of that-- the control key functions.  Was waiting for a reply such as this to get me going.  I did it manually for about half.

Will try the procedure soon as I get the SSD back on boot drive.

Thanks for answering.

I'll report any success.

I'll ask this another way too.  I have some categories with multiple items:
a tv show season,  another tv show season and some performances.  Can I select one of the categories and transfer or merge that category group to the new drive location folder?

I think we are speaking at cross purposes.  I see no reference to the Merge
function and so am just continuing manually.  The merge function is within
Tixati.  What is described above is a cut and paste.  My tixati program folder and profile is on the boot disk.  The profile info can be acted on with Merge
but it cannot be highlighted and moved.

Maybe one of the admins will have a better view of it.  What I'm doing does
what I want to happen.  Manually seems to be the only way to get there.

I can't understand what you are asking in your last post.

"I'll ask this another way too.  I have some categories with multiple items:
a tv show season,  another tv show season and some performances.  Can I select one of the categories and transfer or merge that category group to the new drive location folder? "

Sure. This is very easy to do.

1. Click Display Settings and choose categories.  
2. Make sure "Sidebar" is ticked so you can see all your categories.
3. Right click the category you would like to move all the transfers of.
3. Click the Local Files Tab.
4. Set the "Dowloading Location", "Seeding Location" or both.
5. Click the "Apply to Existing Transfers" button.

This will move ALL transfers currently in this category to the Locations you set.  Note that depending on the size of the files and if you are transferring across disks or to external disks that it can take a long time.  The time it takes is not Tixatis fault but the physical limitation of moving hundreds of GBs.

Now any file that is moved into this transfer will automatically be moved to the relevant folder and any new transfer you set as this category will assume these locations by default.

I will try what you say.

Thanks for answering.

I am continuing with my manual process.

Tried the technique above and followed the instruction.  You mentioned
a long time to transfer for lots of Gb.  There's still a misunderstanding in
what I'm doing manually.

To set up a small 120gb ssd with Tixati I did the following:

From my original 2Tb larger boot drive I made a fresh Tixati Profile and exported that to it's file name called backup
I installed Tixati on my SSD.  

I used the import function for the Profile to the new SSD install.

The content files still reside on the larger 2Tb drive now in the D:

 With the manual way I can have a small SSD merge it's -- Profile Data,  I guess-- to the content location using the command Merge in the Tixati options screen.

  Almost done anyway.
