qBittorrent version and Operating System

qBittorrent v4.1.2
Windows 10 Pro

What is the problem

When you have "Create subfolder for torrents with multiple files" checked in the Downloads settings, and download only one file in a multi-file torrent, a subfolder is still created.

What is the expected behavior

I expect (or maybe want) that this setting should take into account how many files are selected for download, as opposed to how many files are in the torrent in total

Steps to reproduce

  1. Go into the settings, click on the "Downloads" button at the left, and check the box labeled"Create subfolder for torrents with multiple files"

  2. Download a torrent with multiple files, but deselect all files but one

  3. A subfolder is created.

Extra info(if any)

I'm not sure if this is a bug, per se, or just behavior that isn't what's expected...
There are many times, though, where there's a torrent with two files, "file.ext" and "Downloaded from foobar.nfo", and I will only select the "file.ext" file, but qBittorrent still creates a subfolder. I get why it's doing it, but I don't think that setting is accomplishing the spirit of what the user wants to have done.
