      Important Security Advisory   06/07/2016

      On June 6th, 2016, BitTorrent was made aware of a security issue involving the vendor which powers our forums.
      The vulnerability appears to have been through one of the vendor’s other clients, however it allowed attackers to access some information on other accounts. As a result, attackers were able to download a list of our forum users. We are investigating further to learn if any other information was accessed.Our vendor has made backend changes so that the hashes in the file do not appear to be a usable attack vector. As a precaution, we are advising our users to change their passwords. While the passwords may not be used as a vector on the forums, those hashed passwords should be considered compromised. Anyone using the same password for forums as well as other places is strongly advised to update their passwords and/or practice good personal security practices.

    I've asked for far more useful things and never seen them implemented. This isn't happening.. ever. The uTorrent team (if you can even call it that, I swear there's a single programmer) is so uninterested or under capitalized that it has no interest in offering even the most modest of usability improvements. This client has been at a stand still for years and this trend will continue for the foreseeable future. Please DreadWingKnight, prove me wrong.

    I've always had this problem of when I try to download anything from TPB, the files never show up in my uTorrent client. They have seeders, so they're not dead torrents. Am I doing something wrong, and is there a way to get the files to show?

    The point is I think we all could think of useful features that could be added that will not be. Not because they wouldn't be agreed upon as being beneficial to all users but simply because they do not wish to spend resources to improve the client when it performs acceptably in it's current state. Please, just look at the rate of development in ANY other active client for comparison. I'm aware of the simplest option of simply switching clients as is everyone else.

    Check under the "Torrents" category in the sidebar or, failing that, under labels -> hidden.

    It does not make sense, the reasoning behind the issue. Support for mac users seems inexistent, or so few people it take a very long time for any response. So for now I am stuck finding the download tor file of each magnet link I would like to use. Or hope the magnet file is small enough to fit on my computers HD, so that It can be transferred over to the external after Downloading. Why my external will not be accepted by Utorr, I have no idea. I can otherwise normally read/write to the drive without any issue. The problem occurred suddenly, without any merit, which is what confuses me the most. I even tried with a different freshly formatted (to Fat-32) external HD and it did not work, same error....

    After changing the download location to an external file I receive this message when I add a magnet link (the link is affordable) The permission on the hd are ok and I normally read/write on that disk. Any suggestion to solve there problem? Thanks

    I wasn't concerned if it would work for me, I've been using it for about 6 years. I just had thought since it specifically says "[32 bit]", that there may be a 64 bit version available. I thought if there was I'd prefer to upgrade to it. But, there isn't, so the answer satisfies my curiosity. Thank you for your response, though. I could've been a total newbie and that would have been a big help. Have a great day PiusX!

    By not setting the "store .torrent files in" setting to that folder. You're creating the problem yourself by downloading to the same folder you have uTorrent set for the store .torrent files in.

    Hi all I am using the Automatically load .torrents from feature. However, when I add a torrent that has files in a folder, it always creates the folder files come with. In UI mode, I have create subfolder feature disabled and always customise the folder name. In automatic mode, can we have a feature to disable this folder creation so all files regards of whether they are single or multi file torrents, go into my specified folder e.g. \\diskstation\var\Downloads? Thanks.

    well as this is ad-free request then its handled here I saw post by synx on pro forum saying this : Keep in mind that only Pro users will get support. The Ad-Free upgrade does not include Premium Support, those still need to post their questions at the forums EDIT : As I am unable to respond in this thread for some reason I will update up here. The manual download of license key didn't work with my proxy on or off. I used the bundled auto update and then things worked when not using a proxy to connect. So issue solved for me.

    After upgrading to OsX Sierra (10.12.2) Utorrent (v 1.8.7 (42417) has been giving me the following error "Don't have enough permissions to write to "/Volumes." " It does not even state it is trying to save to my hard drive exactly. I am using an External Hard Drive, which I do select under the drop down menu at the top (Save As). I Do have write permission to write as I am able to add, copy, and delete things on the hard drive from my mac, however I have added Paragon NTFS to help with this. Looking at the drive -> "get info" -> "Sharing & Permissions" it states "You have custom access". The strange thing is that Torrent is currently download something else previously added. Additionally, I MUST have enough permission to write to the drive as, if I download the .Torrent (BitTorrent Document) file, and manually add it to uTorrent (Selecting the exact same drive), it Works perfectly fine. I do not have a problem adding them manual, however some sites only offer mangnet links, others the manual file does not download leaving you with only a magnet option. This issue started occurring after upgrading to Osx Sierra.

    When I down torrents, they are all mixed together and not grouped in a folder for each download. How can I set up directories to to this?

    This is happening to me in 100% of cases... And one more thing very annoying... I have this setup: Move completed downloads to: D:\COMPLETED\ Append to torrent's label checked Label is: TVSHOWS\ARROW Instead of moving to D:\COMPLETED\TVSHOWS\ARROW folder (as it worked in previous versions) utorrent creates D:\COMPLETED\TVSHOWS_ARROW folder and moves stuff there. Please fix both . Thank you

    Since the last beta (and continuing into release 43085), my sub labels have stopped working. I have my client set up to move each TV show to its own subfolder of my Shows folder, which is a subfolder of my completed downloads folder (i.e. ..\Downloads\Shows\Better Off Ted). The label is set up as "Shows\Better Off Ted" but as of the last beta and release, utorrent will save the files in a folder called Shows_Better Off Ted (..\Downloads\Shows_Better Off Ted). Did something change that I need to adjust in my downloader setup? I did a couple searches, but didn't come up with anything.
