Setting up AutoRemovePlus

  • Once installed, go to AutoRemovePlus. You'll see 2 tabs, which are described below

    • Check Every
      • This sets the interval for the plugin to check Deluge's loaded torrents
      • For example, to check every 24 hours, set it to 1. To check every 6 hours, set it to 0.25
    • Maximum torrents
      • This sets the maximum amount of loaded torrents. Once the number of torrents exceeds the set value, it'll remove the torrents that meets the minimum criteria.
      • For example, setting this to 0 removes every torrent. Setting it to 250 removes every torrent when total loaded torrents is above 250.
    • Minimum HDD Space
      • This sets the minimum HDD space.
      • When disk space goes lower than the value set, it removes the torrents that meets the critera until it reaches the minimum HDD space value set.
