#1028 closed enhancement (fixed)

Different directory for individual up&downloads (maybe using symlinks)

Description

It would be great if one could choose the directory for individual files to download or seed. This would be useful for many obvious reasons (including using other hard drives for bigger downloads).
If there's anything speaking against it, this might also be done by making use of symlinks.
There could be a little button/checkbox next to textbox for new torrents which lets you choose another path than the default.

Not a new suggestion, thought there were related tickets but I can't find them atm. It was an issue that drz in particular pushed for years. This would be a lot easier with a Preferences options backend, the per-torrent options are getting messy.

There's no way to create symlinks from Java.

The biggest problem is just complexity.

But can't one already configure the download directory for all torrents in the settings ? For symlinks I thought of generating batch/bash file according to your settings (and opening up from there, not sure of possible) - might be pretty roundabout though. Didn't know there already was a ticket - it definitely would be pretty useful.

Add a subticket #1132.

Work beginning in i2p.i2p.zzz.snarkconfig for prerequisites including #1132.

For a UI chooser we can't use the web browser's standard form file browser. It only submits file contents, not file/dir name, for security. So we will have to write a file/dir browser/picker, possibly wrapped in js.
