Had problems with last version of Transmission!

I would download a 4GB file & if I had to restart it, or shut down it would read the files in & the files would bloat drastically. A 4 GB file would download & end up being a third to half larger!!!:eek: IE the 4 GB file would finish & be 6-7 GB.
Never experienced the problem with Tomato or Azures. Know if theey fixed this? Anybody else have the same problem?
G4 IMac 800, running 10.3.9

Awesome. I've really wanted to be able to selectively download files for quite some time. I really like how light weight this app is. Azureus was such a resource hog on my powerbook.

Ok so let me get this straight. If lets say I'm downloading 12 gigs worth of data and then I pause the download, and update transmission and then restart the download I have to redownload all 12 gigs?

No its strange on 10.3.9 anyway

The actual physical size of a 4GB torrent file would get to 6+ GB on three files out of 60 or so that I tried. one 7.5 GB file I downloaded ended up actually being 11.75 GB when finished!!! Still cant figure it out!

Yes. Looks like it's changed something involving how Transmission deals with files in order to allow individual files to be downloaded.. It probably error's on files that are half-complete when you stop and then restart.. Not sure though.
