  1. I have win8.1, and also similar problem. Some people still use Win7. it 's possible to try uTorrent in Win7 - maybe it is more reliable in that old but good OS... it can be a problem not just something inside utorrent itself, but some other stuff in Windows which makes utorrent go crazy at certain situation. have no idea what's going on. it was like this with me before... and by the way, if this worked well in previous version(s), it is a good idea to try that some older, but stable relaese, if this one is "beta" version or something... though I don't know which are most stable versions of Utorrent ;-(
  2. I have similar problem. maybe we have to try other software, or the only way is to manually recheck files which are wrong and redownload only them (though it takes too much time, so redownload may seem faster, though not best sometimes if torrents from which we download are not stable enough...). i was downloading mp3 lectures, and it shows strange status that "100% done", though downloaded size is much less (many gigabytes) than total full size of those 100%... my idea is to try open those original torrents which I was adding to download my mp3s from, and utorrent will ask to redownload from them everything again... maybe it is the only way... but before that I think it is a good idea to make a copy of what is already downloaded... I have HDD (not "fragile" SSD), so for me it's not a problem to make a copy and redownload. simply uncomfortable about redownloading: those people who seed torrens maybe are not very happy to provide those many gigabytes again... also, I think the way to handle it is to download part-by-part. one my idea is to download only one torrent per time... I tried to download several (4) torrens at a time, and total their size is around 80-85 GBytes, and there are ~4500 files total there... it would be a headache to recheck all that manually.. I wonder why uTorrent do not recheck checksums properly I think there maybe some special files together with .torrent files or extra-info inside .torernt files to count checksums in reliable ways, so recalc of all that would give idea of what is ok, and what is not... or make many checksums for blocks of fils in torrent. or at least on check-sum/hash file for each file / folder in .torrent file - this will solve the problem of knowing which file is downloaded 100% ok with no broken data inside, and which one is not OK accordking to checksum/hash... i mean. if I have around 4500 files to be downloaded, I expect to have around 4500 checksum/hash files inside torren files from which I download these 4,5 thousands mp3 (don't worry, it is not piracy, these are lectures of one saint, and it is free). czulsk, try to make a copy (if it's not SSD, but you have HDD) of what is already downloaded into other folder, and try to redownload one torrent by one... and I think it is safer to manually set some limit of quantity of how many maximum files can be downloaded at one time... in list of files inside torrent - select them, and, and mark only some to be downloaded at first (maybe 100, 100 files etc, or see by size - few Gigabytes etc)... then when these are all done - we can switch to next files... one other idea which I keep in mind now - is to download folder by folder... don't try to download all many folders at once... why? download one by one... split everything into some blocks, some number of folders/files/groups, and try redownload everything in more correct manner ... too much load for internet connection(s) can make torrent hang... I, by the way, noticeed, that it used to be that when utorrent is on, it makes all other programs impossible to go for them into internet... so i think something is still inside uTorrent which also makes a problem and even uTorrent itself hangs... strange thing! thre could be some exact problem where inside uTorrent's code this prolem happens,. but unfortunately uTorent do not provide bug-tracker, so after crash no report is created/sent on where problem happened, in which source code file, in which line, which procedure/function etc etc... so I have no idea... I'm studying for a programmer, so if i had some source code, i could have myself tried to what's going on, and try to solve the problem (using breakpoints, while imitating the problem)... but i think i'm not going to become a tester of uTorrent app, so can't help, czulsk. I'm in same position as you... ;-( kind of helpless
  3. Hello, I've got this problem often. uTorrent hangs (as Win8.1 often does it), and computer restarts, uTorrent process is "killed" etc, so some info (I suspect) is being broken/corrupted about downloaded torrents/files... In short: I added 4 BIG torrents - sizes are: 29 GB, 19 GB, 18 GB, and 8 GB. downloaded a lot, then computer hanged (I went to sleep, and came beck - uTorrent is hanged, could only restart)... After I restarted, opened uTorrent - it tried to check the 4 downloads, and showed strange info (see attached picture) - it shows wrong status, that it is "all downloaded", while actual downloaded size is Gigabytes less than total size of torrents! I wonder that I can't force restart recheck torrents hashes.... it simply started seeding, but I don't see why it doesn't want to download additional Gigabytes till "Downloaded size == Total size"? for strange reason it says that all files are downloaded, but then why oh why Total torrents size is bigger than my downloaded size? if my downloaded sizes are smaller than total sizes, then where are those additional; files lost? it is very strange! i mean: i expect that if my downloaded sizes are less than total sizes, it must allow to download missing gigabytes, untill downloaded sizes = total sizes of torrents, isn't it what it supposed to be? is there a way to force uTorrent to check all hashes? to recalc all hashes, and find missing gigabytes? my uTorrent version is 3.5.5 or, is it expected right behaviour and I misunderstood something my own wrong way? please clarify this, as I face this again and again, and have no idea what the heck is going on ... it seems nonsense, like in formula "8=10" or "9=10" etc etc... (by the way, when I was adding torrents, I didn't uncheck any files/folders, and did "check all" for downloading from torrent)... it si all very very strange... ;-(
