Cannot Create New Torrent From Folder

Postby queeroid » Sun Dec 11, 2016 12:04 am

Hello all,

I've painstakingly searched the forum to no avail, and tried creating a torrent in other torrent programs as well, but I just cannot seem to do it. And Google can't seem to provide any answers. So, here I am.

In Deluge, which is the torrent program I regularly use and otherwise works perfectly, I can only create a torrent of a single file. I CANNOT, however, create a torrent comprising of a folder. I go to File > Create Torrent, I click Folder, then select the folder I want to torrent, I click Open and NOTHING HAPPENS. Literally nothing. It won't even open the folder, let alone add that folder to a new torrent file. So, then I hit Cancel... and NOTHING HAPPENS. The only way to exit the "Create Torrent" window is to hit the X. I can't even get to the part where I add trackers and all that because I can't get past the very first step in the process.

I'm on Windows 10, using Deluge 1.3.13. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Ignore this. Obviously I can't read.

Have you run deluge-debug with logging as per troubleshooting wiki?

Hi, I thought I would put my word in that Deluge is not letting me create a recently downloaded folder from a different source. Like 100 GBs+. What queeroid described going on is exactly what I am experiencing.

I don't believe this has to do with the size of the folder. I can continue in the process of torrent creation with other folders that are over 300GBs+. I'm not sure what to do here, I would hate to go with a different torrent program... looks like I have no other option right now. I don't have time to debug programs either.

Is it possible the folder has non-ascii chars?
