"Set Download Location" doesn't work for magnet links


Recommended Posts

In addition to this: http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=62097

uTorrent 1.8.5 build 17056 (but the behavior was the same in previous versions, namely 1.8.1 and 1.8.3).

I have the "Don't start the download automatically" checkbox checked. Clicking on a magnet link in browser (or adding a magnet link with "File -> Add Torrent from URL") adds it to uTorrent's queue in the stopped state and with download location set to the folder specified in "Preferences -> Directories -> Put new downloads in" (which is a bug by itself because I have that checkbox unchecked - see screenshot).


Then I right-click that newly created download, go to "Advanced -> Set Download Location" and choose a target folder/file. When I start downloading, uTorrent gets torrent info from DHT, changes download title accordingly, and then changes download location to "My Documents\Downloads" folder. So, I have to stop downloading and reset the download location.
