|Summary||0001399: provide move file feature|
|Description||Currently all files are place in temp directory, however I sometimes fall into lack of free space and then I have to stop some downloads some cancel, a lot of headache how to finish downloads when there is not a lot of space available.|
However I do have free space on other partitions. Thus it would be useful to have the ability to move the file from temp to selected directory. Ability: GUI way (from amule) to do this, because I am not sure if raw move (mv in unix) and then symlinking would do the trick -- for sure it cannot be done while amule is working.

Yes, "raw move" (mv && ln -s) does the trick. But beware, that when the file is completed, only the symlink will be moved into the Incoming directory.
However, the real solution is to let only a "small" number of files download, only that much that you can finish. aMule can always start next paused file when a download completes, and you can move the completed files onto another partition.
I am reopening this one, because I didn't find any other way to respond.
Thank you for the reply but my wish was to do it nicely in GUI mode. And I cannot limit downloads to "small files" because several downloads takes a month or longer to download and I cannot predict what files I will have in moth in advance -- I mean I don't use solely amule on my computer, and disk usage changes. Just an example -- Ktorrent lets you move file in nicely manner (you click RMB on a file in Ktorrent and select another destination).
You can "select another destination" in aMule, too, by using categories. However, "destination" in this sentence means a place where the file will be moved when it's complete.
aMule does not support the idea of having multiple Temp folders, nor is a file manager. However, moving away and symlinking can now be done while aMule is running. (Still not a GUI way I admit, but it's very unlikely that there will ever be one in aMule).
