Autoremove Torrents is an open-source Python project that allows the automatic removal of torrents from various torrent clients based on configurable criteria. It can help manage disk space by deleting torrents when they are finished seeding. Here's the GitHub page of the project.
- Remove torrents automatically based on ratio, seeding time, inactivity and more
- Monitor disk space and remove torrents if space runs low
- Remove oldest, biggest, smallest torrents first
- Support for all major torrent clients
- Dry run mode to test without removing
- Schedule via crontab for hands-off automation
Autoremove Torrents works with the following torrent clients:
- It supports connecting to the web UI for qBittorrent, Transmission, and μTorrent (not on Ultra.cc).
- For Deluge, it connects directly to the daemon via the RPC protocol.
- Connect to your Ultra.cc service via SSH
- There are two ways to install Autoremove Torrents:
This will install the latest stable release:
pip install autoremove-torrents
This allows installing the development version:
git clone https://github.com/jerrymakesjelly/autoremove-torrents.git cd autoremove-torrents python setup.py install --user
Autoremove Torrents uses a YAML configuration file to define the torrent clients and removal rules.
First, you need to specify connection details for each torrent client:
qbittorrent: client: qbittorrent host: https://username.hostname.usbx.me/qbittorrent username: <your-username> password: <your-password> deluge: client: deluge host: IP:Daemon port username: <your-username> password: <your-password>
clientparameter specifies the client name, while
hostcontains the URL or IP address + port.
passwordare login credentials for the web UI or daemon.
Next, define removal strategies under each client. For example:
strategies: delete_seeds: remove: ratio > 2 clear_space: free_space: min: 10 path: /downloads action: remove-big-seeds
You can customize removal rules based on ratio, seed time, activity, disk space and more. See the full documentation for details on all available options.
Strategies will only apply to the client they are defined under. You can create multiple strategies per client.
- Specify a custom config path:
- Single Task:
autoremove-torrents --conf=/path/to/config.yml --task transmission
- Dry run:
autoremove-torrents --view --conf=/path/to/config.yml --task transmission
Dry run allows you to see what would be deleted without actually removing anything.
- Open Crontab using
1for the nano editor.
- You can setup a cron job or scheduled task to run autoremove-torrents automatically. For example:
# Run at 2AM every day 0 2 * * * /path/to/autoremove-torrents --conf=/path/to/config.yml
- Save the crontab file using
ctrl + o& exit using
ctrl + x.

- If installed via pip:
pip uninstall autoremove-torrents
- Also, if there is a config directory left at
rm -rf ~/.config/autoremove-torrents && rm -rf ~/.apps/autoremove-torrents
- For manual installs, delete the autoremove-torrents folder and any installed files/packages.
