This might all be a followup of ticket #79. Lets see when #79 is fixed.

please redownload latest qbit 3.1.9. It should fix #79. and eventually also this problem. I didn't try it so far.

I can confirm that this has been resolved with the re-release of qBittorrent 3.1.9

  1. The startup time has been reduced to 0 as it instantly resume the download form where it left.
  2. All files remain in their sub folders.
  3. Have tested variations to the description above and it behave as desired.
