What is the problem
Copy the torrent file to the download folder .in some case, cut the folder contain !qb file to another pc ,for example. the original magnet link maybe lost by time ,and no way to resume the download on the other pc,if down load or transmit magnet to torrent file and store it in the folder ,i can just simply resume by the seed.
This is making sense. @FateRover wants to save the .torrent-file in the same folder as the payload. The setting only allows to save the torrent in a single folder only.
.torrents-files are hard to find on the WWW, depending on seeding and age.
I save the .torrent-file for all completed payloads. Quite some work. There are MANY incomplete payloads for years (yes, most of them will never complete). And also there are LOTS of torrents, which are waiting to receive a .torrent-file ('Downloading metadata' in qbt), because you only downloaded the mangnet and you can't find the .torrent-file. Also most of those will never complete, except someone starts to reseed it with THAT .torrent-file.
If qbt has this new feature (to copy torrent to same location like payload is downloaded), then if payload is single file, not located in its own sub-folder, the copied torrent file should be renamed to match name of the payload file or the name of the torrent (which may do a mess in folders with many files - naming mismatch, files sorted by name). Here i would prefer if even single file payloads can be allowed to be created in its own sub-folders: #7748
@coolio2013 yeah, in some situation,the name of downloeded file isn't same with the name of .torrent file。
Maybe some .torrent file named by hash (dfgsdghsfdgflkjlkjfjdfaklafkjg.torren for example) while the file real name was" Make America Great Britain Again.avi "
If i have completed the download and remove it from the list，I obviously do not know the original magnet link or hash info of “Make America Great Britain Again.avi”
I have to open the single folder，click the seeds one by one to see which one was the right torrent，if torrent stored in the " Make America Great Britain Again.avi " folder，i can open the folder and the seed is there no matter what name it is。
and what is worse，the torrent may even just be named by random， 123456.torrent，after some time，“ What the hell is this torrent？”
