The default location for webtorrent downloads is
This can create problems. On my (linux) computer,
/tmp is a mounted ramdisk (tmpfs) that maximizes to half of my ram. If the computer reboots, this space is wiped.
Since I have 6 GB ram, this means it is limited to 3 GB.
Yesterday I tried to download a 4.3 GB torrent file. No errors were reported, but obviously not all fit on the tmpfs, and when I tired to use the files, they were corrupted.
Another effect was that it entirely filled the
/tmp device, so many other applications began malfuctionining because they could not create temporary files.
I believe webtorrent allows you to specify a different download location, but I cannot figure out how to do that when using Brave.
