Do you have "pre-allocate all data" setting enabled? It seems surprising but I never checked.

Helder (helderc) said : #2

No. The option "pre-allocate all data" is unchecked...

I have just tried and only the root folder was created here. I'll make more tests.

Are you using the "Add in pause" setting? Otherwise, if the torrent is paused *after* being added to the transfer list, then it is normal for the files to be created.

Yes, i'm using the "Add in pause" when go add a torrent, and when e click ok, the files are create.

Hi, I checked better the whole possible problem what I quoted here.
I apologise since I was wrong. What it happens the fact is that if a torrent have a briefcase with the archives inside, this folder (only the folder) is created when a torrent is added in pause, but the archives are not created.
Again, I apologise for the wasted time.
