Deluge 1.3.6 hash checks are not catching corrupt data

Postby timmo » Wed Oct 25, 2017 12:08 am

Recently switched to Deluge (on Mint 17.3), and am extremely pleased with its performance. However, some multi-part torrents are failing when I attempt to extract them, all with checksum errors in one or more part. A forced re-check nearly always finds no errors, and seeding resumes. But the checksum errors are still there when I again try to extract the files.

The only way I have managed to work around this is to open the completed torrent in another client, and then force a check there. That client finds the corrupt data, and downloads the bad pieces again.

As I am new to Deluge, perhaps I am missing something basic. Deluge has the fastest re-check I have seen in any client. Is this because the default is not a very stringent check? Is there a way to make Deluge perform a more thorough check of the torrent parts? Or is there some other solution to this problem?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

I would look into upgrading deluge first. And with that you will probably be upgrading libtorrent.

There is a PPA somewhere you can add. Deluge is at 1.3.15 now.

Definitely upgrade. Usually it comes down to bad torrent files which are not following the spec so need reporting to torrent creator...
