move it but keep seeding

Post by bixo »

Hey, could you explain more about the different types?

MOVE
COPY (i.e. copy-on-write clone if possible, or copy if necessary)
SYMLINK
HARDLINK
KEEPLINK (i.e. move file and create a symlink to the new path in its place)
DUPLICATE (i.e. hardlink if possible, or copy-on-write clone if possible, or copy if necessary)
CLONE (i.e. copy-on-write clone)
TEST (i.e. do nothing)

If I have this torrent Movie2 and want to rename and move it but keep seeding, without duplicating it so I save space, what is the best choice?

I am using filebot cmd on Linux.

I did filebot -rename "home/bioz/to/onep" --format "{order.airdate.plex}" -non-strict --order Absolute --action hardlink

I tested hardlink and it seems it duplicates my torrents.

--action hardlink does what you want. A hardlink is a duplicate file system entry, which is not to be confused with a duplicate physical copy on disk.
