Resetting transcode should not delete file until a new one is ready
Open, LowPublic


Currently resetting a transcode deletes the file immediately, then replaces it after the transcode re-runs.

This leaves a "hole" where the reset transcode is simply gone until the new one is done. If the new run fails or takes a long time, then you're out of luck.

The deletion should ideally not happen until the new file is ready -- or if the transcode was invalid/disabled, then immediately at job processing time rather than at queue time.
