I don't know anything about the programming, but if you looked at torrent programs, most of them I have used so far, have had some sort of file check that they do. So it cycles through this file check for all partially completed files once brought into the torrent program. Once the check is done, the downloading resumes from where it was left off. Of course of the download was already in the torrent program there is no need to run this file check. This is more for imported torrents or adopted directories. Did I explain this very well? It might be called a hash check or something like that. Maybe I can find something on Google then post a link.
Auto-Load torrents is a cool new feature I have seen in some torrent programs. How this works is you set a directory where .torrent files are located. With this option checked, the program will automatically import them. If the files already exist, the trackers are merged. If the files exist partially, that is if the torrent leads the program to a partially downloaded file, the files is imported, checked and resumed. This feature basically allows people to just download their .torrent files for whatever they want into the directory set to auto-load them, and it saves them the step iof having to double click to add each one. Very useful as a way to batch import too.
Yeah that would be cool to be able to turn that off through the UI. No sense allocating space for torrents that stall or never get past 0%. When you're tight on space as I am its a cold shock to see all your remaining room ate up by something like that.
