Duplicate .torrent file created after download finishes


Recommended Posts

I can't seem to figure out what is causing this or how to fix it, so I am coming to the forums for help.

When I save a torrent file, I always rename it with a code, so I can sort them when I need to find something later.  For example, if a downloaded torrent has the file name "TVShow S01E01.torrent", I rename it to "[TV] TVShow S01E01.torrent".  BitTorrent operates exactly as expected when I open the torrent.  But after the torrent finishes and begins seeding, a duplicate is created with the original file name.  Is there a way to stop this from happening?

My current theory is that when BT seeds a file, it needs the original naming scheme for the file that other users would have, so if it can't find that file, it creates it from the one it opened.

Any thoughts?
