Pre-allocate all files

Create a file the size of the file you’re downloading full of dummy data the moment you start the download

This is not a good idea for people with limited space, or for those who change their minds before the download completes.

Actually its good. It prevents defragmentation and sudden insufficient space.

Pause any torrents which could cause exceed space. Download one by one. Dont be a greedy sob.

Doba simple calculation of space required before resuming paused torrents. If someone cant do that, go back to preschool or stop using the inturnets.

Buy a bigger sdcard and learn to transfer finished downloads to otg or wireless storages.

People who changes minds are ppeople with low iq who couldn't decide anything. Just kill yourself please.

I would appreciate this as an option. I've had it happen a couple of times where I have 2 downloads running but neither can finish without deleting one of them.
On a side note, I don't believe fragmentation is a problem on SSD as there is no seek/access issues.

If this is done, there should be a toggle for it in settings..

Yes, please, preferably as a tick-box in the download dialog & a toggle for the default in settings.

please correct the time display before the download is complete in the Ukrainian language. It is displayed in a few lines and not informative at all.
