Download Station redownloading finished torrents bug

Post by registeredToSearch »

I'm having a very unfortunate issue with Download Station that basically makes it unusable :(

Whenever the NAS is restarted, there is a good chance Download Station forgets the status of existing torrents and treats them as new downloads. My NAS had a scheduled restart this morning, and about 50 torrents that were completed/seeding turned into downloading tasks. Luckily I noticed, but this issue could be catastrophic if the NAS is unattended. The disk could be filled with redundant downloads, and the IP address could get blocked from torrent trackers due to overuse.

I have seen variations of this bug a number of times. I think it can also happen if Download Station is updated or restarted, or sometimes without a clear trigger.

Best to report this issue to QNAP, doubt many peple here are using download Station and even if so, QNAP are the only ones that can fix bugs

I am regularly using Download Station, with latest fw QTS 5.0.1.
However I have not met this issue. It is working "fine" so far..
Suggest you open a ticket with QNAP, and inform which NAS model and fw versions you have..

And version of download station.
