add a setting "upon deletion, delete the torrent with the downloded files" #11975
In addition, we could have it possible even via the mouse pressing on the toolbar icon.
It's just that for me, I don't care that some torrents remain for a long time, but for some, when I remove them, I want the to be really gone, and not just gone from the list.
Because a confirmation dialog appears, that you need to press "OK". Meaning more steps for a simple operation that we perform quite often. I don't have a confirmation dialog on Windows. Whenever I delete a file/folder, it goes right into the Recycle-bin. I think it's the default behavior too. Only permanent deletion has a confirmation dialog.
I have the confirmation disabled because I don't accidentally delete things. And even if I did, it goes to the recycle bin anyway so I shouldn't worry about this. For me, Shift+Delete is the only way to truly delete the item+torrent+files.
Also, as I wrote, on the toolbar there is a deletion button. All it does is to delete the item from the list. Doesn't delete the torrent, and doesn't delete its downloaded files.
Please add option as such:
You could also have a setting of what to do for each so the user will choose.
Both should be with/without the confirmation dialog of "are you sure" , based on whether it's enabled in the settings or not.
That's because this dialog is quite annoying. Asking for each deletion. Dialogs should appear only for very important operations. Not such common ones. If it was permenant, it could have a dialog, or it could have some nice alternative like a timeout of deletion (see Gmail on the web browser or on Android), which I personally prefer.
