Autoremove torrents based on ratio or time.
Ability to flag a torrent (or torrent data) for deletion after a specified ratio has been met or after seeding for a specified time. That would mean I could set a torrent to be removed after my seed ratio reaches 1.5 or after 90 days, whichever comes first.
Remove the task before the quitting µTorrent or computer.
-BEFORE performing the action to close µTorrent--remove the existing task (not data) that is completed or selected to be removed before shutting down µTorrent or computer.
-Add a Action/Option in task options menu saying "delete task when seeding criteria is matched".
-Same thing for multiple running tasks.
-prioritize tasks and perform the new action accordingly.
-Can also perform quit/shutdown/etc µTorrent/computer after task completion and removal, would need a trigger.
-You already have a process to quit/shutdown/etc when download/everything completes for a task. Use that AFTER using the new process to remove task.
+Audience for this update:
1) Limited band-capacity usage users.
2) Maintain Computer Performance users.
3) Overnight downloading users.
4) Overnight uploading users.
5) Global uploading users.
6) Removing partial evidence of download users.
just to name a few.
I don't want to enable hit and run; I just want to remove torrents from uTorrent once the seeding goal has been met. Considering the support for something like this all over the web I can't believe that it's not been implemented. Pretty please with sugar on top?
Two more things to add:
1. Currently a torrent is finished based on minimum seeding goal, we need a maximum time here, to stop and finish dead torrents. Also 'Last Active' value could be used for this.
2. I like move on completed, but I would love move on finished / autoremove. Once the torrent is done I'd like to move it to my external storage drive. My external drive has an auto shutdown when idle, but this can't happen if the torrent is just completed and still seeding.
It would be better if there was a group-based autoremove torrents feature. This is because some torrents don't seed as well as others. So rather than consider individual torrents, consider a group of torrents seeding at the same time. When the combined seeding ratio/MB downloaded of a group reaches 100%, or whatever the user sets it as, then have the autoremove kick in and remove the group of torrents.
By implementing the above you no longer have to wait for weeks for certain torrents, that barely seed, to finish.
You can set your torrents to stop when they reach the seeding goal and then invoke a script that runs on a status change, if the status is 11 (stopped or finished) then it sends a command through the web API to remove torrent and delete data.
There is a perfect example floating around the forums. http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=110024
This functionality built in would be sweet!
As a workaround, I use a "Delete" label which I check on every once in a while to see if I have reached a seed ratio of 1.5. I also have the "Seed Ratio" column in my toolbar, so I can quickly sort if I feel too lazy to look through the torrents.
Awesome! Completely supporting this.
Actually, I posted an idea very similar to this one but only now noticed this, but I couldn't find the link because I can't log in my user because, apparently, I have been blocked by failing my password. And if I try to recover it I get a 404 page. I must say, the user management in this idea bank is terrible.
But µTorrent in itself is awesome. I so much look forward to the implementation of this.
Great idea, manually clearing out torrents is a pain, would be great if this had label and rss downloader integration
auto - remove torrent / remove torrent + data with label support
essential feature :) missing :(
And if you mix-up all these ideas you basically get to what SABnzbd+ has: categories (=labels) linked to predefined processing, like: unpacking, deleting, moving to specific folder, running scripts/commands, etc. It's one of my favorite features.
Anyway, seeing that this threads original request doesn't seem to get much attention, I doubt suggesting more is a good idea. :)
This is a great idea.
This functionality would be very nice in a per label option as well. I think this and my other idea
Could be merged into one per-label options idea.
This should really integrate in with the existing "move completed torrents" feature, so there should be several options we can choose from. UI would look something like this:
When torrents complete:
( ) Leave them in the download directory
( ) Move the downloaded files to [directory]
( ) Copy the downloaded files to [directory]
[ ] Delete completed torrents when the ratio reaches [target]%
[ ] Delete completed torrents after [length] minutes
(using ( ) to indicate a radio button, [ ] a checkbox and [text] an edit box)
I think this design would accomodate everything that people commenting here have suggested they want to do, plus probably a few other things that nobody's thought of yet...
Kenneth Rodriguez commented
I currently delete torrents with a minimum ratio of 200% and have had no activity for at lest a week. It would be great if this could be done automatically for me.
It sounds like a good idea to help unclog all those overworked hard drives here in the community. Anything to help automate the disk maintenance routine gets my votes. Plus at the time of this post this idea is only 49 votes shy of nudging the clan that wants to add a chat room to the UI out of it's #4 ranking! That's motive enough by itself.
yiNXs: I agree with you that leecher abuse shouldn't be a counterargument. I was just saying that they (and we) already have a feature to stop the torrent once it's done / reached a certain ratio / etc (somewhat like what you said, I see now). This request is for a feature that goes beyond that: we want the torrent fully removed from the list at this event.
Amir: Are you disagreeing, or agreeing? Because you start like you disagree, and then it seems you more or less repeat what I've been saying. Let me put it this way then: possible leecher abuse shouldn't be a counterargument to have this feature.
yiNXs: While I do agree that it seems to be an easy feature to implement, what you say about leechers is irrelevant. Leechers don't need this feature to automatically stop sharing: they can reduce their upload speed to zero immediately after a torrent has completed downloading (instead of after reaching a certain share ratio) and can also throttle their upload speeds altogether.
This requested feature is simply a list-cleaner, for when the torrent has already stopped and is doing nothing, anyway.
Why is actually the reason that this request hasn't been reviewed (/feedbacked) yet? I've been wondering this, because as a programmer myself, all I see here is changing the existing "and" function into an "or" function (well, make it configurable at least) and perhaps an extra call to the remove .torrent function after that. What could be the reason for this to have such a low priority even though it should be quite simple to make (at least relatively to the other requests) while also being very high on the request list? I hope it's not out of fear of leechers abusing this (the only reason I can come up with), because leechers don't ever think like that, they simply turn the client off after they're done, that's true leecher logic, not digging for 0 upload settings somewhere, believe me, they really don't care about any of that, they just want the file.
I came here to request such a feature as well. Please add this in a future version! Thanks devs!
