Please provide the following information

qBittorrent version and Operating System

qBittorrent v4.1.4
Operating System: Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS
Kernel: Linux 4.15.0-39-generic
Architecture: x86-64

If on linux, libtorrent and Qt version

Qt: 5.9.5

What is the problem

Changes to the file structure are not being saved properly and qBittorrent loses these changes after shutdown.

Download a file with the structure


Change the Dir to something simple for storage to something like
Season 02

Qbittorrent changes the structure and moves File into the Dir Season 02

Shutdown Qbittorrent and when it is restarted at a later time the Torrent will error out because it is looking for the File in the org Dir instead of Season 02

What is the expected behavior

Qbittorrent changes the structure and moves File into the Dir Season 02
This should be stored right after the change is made
Shutdown qBittorrent and restart
Qbittorrent should still look for the File in the directory Season 02

Steps to reproduce

This will happen randomly. I have seen it occur with normal shutdowns and with rebooting a slow machine. The amount of time the that has passed since the file was downloaded does not seem to matter. I had to reboot tonight and had 14 files fail to this error. The files were completed between 2018-11-19 and 2018-11-27
