Prevent the utorrentpartfile.dat file creation


Recommended Posts


When you download multiple files in the same torrent, sometimes you decide not to download one of them.

When you select the files to download before the download starts (in the box that opens with every new download), there is no problem.

But when you choose to unselect a file while the downloaded started, a file like utorrentpartfile12345ahh.dat is created and force the creation of a folder even you only download one file.

Is there a way to force the auto-destruction of this file after the download of the file is finished?

All ideas are welcome..

diskio.use_partfile: This option is used to store data that is downloaded from files that you told µTorrent to skip. This is necessary to prevent the file from being allocated. It stores the parts of the skipped files that come with a piece, since µTorrent must download and save the entire piece, and each piece can contain data from multiple files. The partfile is removed when you remove the torrent job from the torrent job list.
