To download torrents, I have changed from running Transmission on my Mac to running it on a NAS. As a next step, I want the Mac to automatically start the torrent download on the NAS by moving the .torrent file to the "watch folder" on the NAS.
I have created the Automator script below to move the file and it works well. I have associated .torrent files with this script and my browser (Chrome) opens these automatically.
The problem I now have is that the Mac File Quarantine is triggered when the .torrent file is opened. I get the message:
".torrent" may be an application. It was downloaded from the Internet and will be opened by TorrentOnDiskstation. Are you sure you want to open it?
When I have Transmission installed on my Mac, it opens .torrent files without a warning message, so it must have some way of telling the OS that .torrent files are ok.
How can I get the same behavior with my Automator script?
I've found answers that show how to completely disable the File Quarantine feature (at least for pre-Lion Mac OS), but this seems overkill. I've also seen "hacks" that will trigger the xattr function when a file is created, but this doesn't seem elegant. Can anyone come up with a clean and self-contained solution?
