Error: Disk access error - renameFile fails
#1
I'm downloading multiple torrents at the same time to the same folder (remove top level folder) and these torrents have a file "info.txt" that I'm not downloading (selective downloading with options dialog). After some time, I get this error on one of the torrents:
Error: Disk access error - renameFile fails

What I have tried so far is to uncheck options->files->enforce exclusive file write access locking across torrents

I already read https://wiki.vuze.com/w/Selective_downloading and I kinda understand what is my problem, but I expect to be overlooking something like an option, that will allow me to fix my problem.

Thanks.

Not sure why the complaint is 'renameFile fails' but this isn't going to work - generally speaking 'do not download' files still require some data to be downloaded (as they share pieces with files that are required) so you're going to end up with multiple downloads attempting to write this data to the same file...

You might be able to rename the unwanted file to something unique in the add-torrent dialog though

Thank you for your time in answering.

Renaming could work, sadly when I manually rename the files I won't want another option is ignored/conflicts:
options->files->move files not selected for download into subfolder

Another problem is that if I will have too many torrents downloading at the same time, I could get lost on the renamings and for example forget that I already have a file renamed "17info.txt" and use "17info.txt" again, then come back 10 hours later expecting all the torrents to be finished and see that my torrent stopped because I forgot I already used "17info.txt"

Sadly I can not use utorrent because it lacks a very nice advanced feature that vuze has and I need, bind to multiple IPs/interfaces.

Probably vuze needs to do something like this:
For the not selected files, create the files but use .tmp files with random name and .tmp extension that will never conflict with other vuze torrents .tmp files.
I'll post that idea on vote.vuze.com for now.

Not an ideal hack as you say!

So you're already using the 'sub folder' option - I guess that's why you end up with the 'rename fail' - the new torrent tries to rename the 'do not download' file into the subfolder and fails because a file with the same name already exists.

It would be possible to add an option to randomly rename files at this point perhaps.

B33 will have an option to automatically add a unique prefix to files in the 'do not download' folder
