Every time after booting, I have to mount the partition and apply force re-check on the torrents in Deluge.Is there any way to avoid force rechecking or every time I start deluge or alternatively apply automatic check on torrents? P.S: The download folder for my torrents is located in NTFS location as I'm using dual boot system(Ubuntu 14.04 + Windows 7)

  • You should enable the auto mount of your partition by editing your /etc/fstab. – g_p Sep 21 '14 at 9:55
  • @G_P I don't think he should auto-mount his windows drive for the sake of your Windows' sanity. (I assume it's his C: partition) If you need to mount your Windows drive, do it either automatic and read-only or manually. – s3lph Sep 21 '14 at 10:20
  • He has not mentioned anywhere that he is using windows partition. – g_p Sep 21 '14 at 10:22
  • @the_Seppi -no,I'm not using my C: partition for downloads but a rather different partition meant only for storing documents. – Akshay Bansal Sep 21 '14 at 11:16
  • @G_P will enabling the auto-mount feature for my partition(E: in this case) solve the problem of force recheck in deluge?I don't have any problem mounting E: after reboot but the issue is torrents starts to re-download even after manually mounting the drive and I always have use the 'force re-check' option from deluge settings to bring it the normal situation.I want to get rid of forcefully re-checking the torrent procedure in deluge – Akshay Bansal Sep 21 '14 at 11:21

The answer is fairly straightforward:

  • Add the NTFS mount to fstab so it is auto-mounted on boot.
  • Setup the Deluge daemon to use an Upstart script. This will wait for the filesystems in fstab to mount before starting deluged on boot.
  • Start Deluge and if deluged is running it should ask you to switch to thinclient mode and you'll be able to connect it.

Note: In the Upstart guide, use your local user instead of creating a new one.
