Would it be possible to add an option that would prevent torrent file names from being randomized?
I need to transfer half my stuff to a seedbox and can't tell what is what, because the file names are garbage.

It's the torrent's hash and it's intended for internal use (there must be no name collision). Can't you just copy paste their magnet links from the transfer list?

Most of my torrents don't come from magnets.
Besides, I don't know what you mean by transfer list :(

The list in qBt where you see the torrents, select torrents, right click and copy magnet links. No idea if it works with private torrents though.

Actually, it doesn't work too well.
Since it's only possible to copy the magnet link (even the torrent didn't come from a magnet...), you have to initiate the download first in order to get info about the files.
This is problematic when you're adding torrent while the downloaded data already exist - it could be overwritten.

So the feature request still stands....

To prevent filename conflicts either prepend or append the hash to the original file name. Example if you have a file named foobar.torrent with a hash of a4b3ee32, store the file as a4b3ee32-foobar.torrent or a4b3ee32-foobar.torrent

You don't even understand what am I asking.

A workaround would be #1296 but it's abandoned.
