  1. Avoid wasting a download slot for "Checking" a torrent filles

    Sometimes, I have a large "Checking" queue, both for downloads (torrent re-starts) and uploads (torrent finished).

    So when Vuze tries to start downloading a torrent that needs to be checked, it uses a download slot (tracker has 5 slots max allowed) for nothing. The Checking process could even last >10min sometimes.

    It would be nice if Vuze could:
    1. Not waste a download slot for a file that is being checked (pre-check files before starting downloads, if not ready then try to temporarily download the next file(s) in queue until "Checking" is over)
    2. Pre-check the file automatically (before being…

  2. Periodically (definable) re-check destination disk space

    When pre-allocating multiple torrents for overnight downloading, the destination drive (particularly in the case of a smaller SSD) will fill before all torrents can allocate. This leaves many torrents in a stopped "insufficient disk space" state. These torrents do not start automatically when space becomes available (where completion moving is used).

    A periodic free space check of the download destination would make it possible for the unallocated/stalled torrents to resume without user intervention.

    This would be particularly useful to those users throttled during daytime/peak hours, where night time downloading is preferable and far more fruitful.

  3. allow Swarm Merging with incomplete and complete downloads

    Is it possible to allow Swarm Merging with incomplete and complete downloads? The Wiki says this is not allowed.

    Sometimes after downloading a package, you may find a larger package (like more volumes/episodes of a series), this is common with ongoing series. Using the existing torrent to merge with the new larger torrent would save bandwidth and sometimes you can't just drag & drop files because the names are different.

    Right now, I rename one file and force a recheck (with the networks disabled) to force a torrent back to the download list, but this is a pain for large…
