I have a drive with media files. It's mounted on /media/pi/media. The drive unmounts whenever I start the torrent client transmission. Why?


  • I have previously run sudo chown -R pi:pi /media/pi/media/ and sudo chmod -R 777 /media/pi/media/. This is probably bad and might affect this issue, but I don't know.
  • Transmission downloads to /media/pi/media/torrents-complete
  • 2
    "Many bittorrent clients have the option of storing intermediate files elsewhere. That could fix your issue - storing all the little chunks on your local SSD, and then once the file is complete, transferring to your external HDD." || reddit.com/r/torrents/comments/8vs8t6/… – M.
