Downloaded files are corrupted (sometimes)
This happened several times to me already using the Tor Browser Bundle:
- Downloading a file.
- Saving the file in the default folder that TBB offers me (should be Downloads in the TBB's subtree).
- The Download finishes successfully.
- After some time I try to open the file. The file is corrupted. Its size is much smaller than what it should be. Observation: all files in the folder have the same date.
OS: Linux Filesystem (this may be the key here!): btrfs
My speculations: The last time it happened, I am pretty sure that TBB did an auto-update while the file was downloading. Considering the changed date of all files, I guess the whole subtree was rewritten including the Downloads folder. Maybe the copy-on-write feature of btrfs has something to do with the problem?
