Do you have write access to the location you are downloading torrents to? Do you also have write access to the transmission config folder?

Thomas Kr├╝ger (thkrueger) said : #2

When and where does the message show up? Is it related to the file or to the tracker?

Many thanks for all help - yes, I forgot that I had set to download to an external disk which was not switched on
