Can it not pre-allocation even during download?


Recommended Posts

I'd like BitTorrent client to only save what it actually downloaded so far. There's no need to waste space. Can it be done? Disabling the general "Pre-allocate all files" is only meant to stop it from doing so "immediately after starting the torrent job. Note that this option does not have an impact on hard drive fragmentation (advantageous or otherwise), as BitTorrent Mainline already allocates each file upon writing to disk even without this option." (from the manual).

So can it be done regarding the downloads themselves?
