I actually tried this earlier today but couldn't get to remove after the 4 hour wait, it might have been because none of my torrents are set to seed after the download is complete.i use a plugin called AutoRemove plus, install plugin and enable it and use these settings :_
Change Check every to 0.1000. This will cause the plugin to check your torrents about every 2 and a half hours and delete any that meet the criteria.
Change Maximum Torrents to the number of torrents you want to leave seeding at any one time. If you want the torrents to clear out as quickly as possible, set it to 0.
Change Remove by to Seed Time and set the value to 0.166. This is measured in days, so this setting will clear out torrents that have been seeding for 4 hours. You don't want to set this to 0, because that runs the risk of removing torrents before your server has the chance of importing the data.
For Exempted Trackers, add any trackers that you don't want to auto-remove. Private trackers often require you to maintain a certain ratio, so you will want to leave those seeding for as long as possible.
Hope this helps
Thanks I appreciate your help, I'll have a look at it later.So this is a challenging problem. You might take a look at this script (may take some modification to work here though).
https://bytesized-hosting.com/pages/implementing fifo (first in first out) to maintain diskspace
I used this script when I was running a bytesized seedbox. It works well by removing the oldest torrents from deluge and has an option to delete the data too. I was using hardlinking with filebot to move completed torrents from the download area to my media folder. I would later move the completed files to google drive. I would then run this script from cron to keep enough free space on my system while also seeding appropriately.
Not a perfect solution, but might be worthwhile looking at.
Yeah deluge by itself can move the files but this is obviously pointless for my scenario.Would it be more practical once the Torrent was downloaded, deploy to / mnt / move / ... movie or TV? this can be designated from Deluge, in fact it suggests it in the wiki for when sonar / radarr is not used. It can?
