  2. Disabling UAC on Windows 8 does not fully disable it, unlike with Win7. You're still running in LUA mode. You can technically disable it, but then it breaks the Store/Metro apps completely (if you care). If you explicitly run µTorrent as Admin, it is possible to do fast allocation again. Again, definitely keep your cache size lower than 1024MB.
  3. Okay. So, on Windows 8, it's not possible to do fast allocation of files, since it requires the admin token. You might as well turn on pre-allocate to take the penalty at the beginning of the torrent instead of randomly in the middle. RAID1 is pretty slow for writes (usually a little slower than a single disk), so that's not going to help your performance too much.
  4. What version of Windows are you running on right now? 7 or 8.1? You probably still want to keep the cache size smaller, below 1024MB. Also, you can turn on the 'pre-allocate files' option in the settings still. This will cause overload near the beginning since the client will be busy allocating every single file (writing zeroes).
  5. It's pretty curious that you're getting Windows ran out of memory error. Does that only happen when you set the larger cache sizes?
  6. What is your cache size set to? Going above 128MB is usually counter-productive.
  7. Re-enable the windows system cache and uncheck "write out untouched blocks every 2 minutes".
  8. When we started our Idea Bank a few months ago, a Linux version was immediately the most requested feature, and has stayed #1 ever since. This morning, we are announcing a preview release of the first of two new products for Linux users. µTorrent Server, an alpha version available immediately for download here, is intended for users seeking a fast, commandline only BitTorrent client with remote web-based management. If you prefer a more traditional experience, rest assured we are working hard to build a full-featured GUI client. This is a native Linux port and is known to work on Ubuntu 9.10+, Debian 5+ and Fedora 12+. Others may work, but they are not officially supported. Kernel 2.6.13 or newer required. 64-bit host systems currently have some problems, so 32-bit only for now. For trackers who whitelist, the user agent is uTorrent/300B(build#)(server) The peerid is identical to the Windows 3.0 client. They share version numbers because of a common codebase. Ubuntu 10.10 x86 (27079) If you'd like to be notified of new releases, please subscribe to the release notification thread. Release Notes Native Linux port! Headless daemon with WebUI support for remote management 32-bit release (requires 32-bit libraries on x64 systems) Known Issues Auto-updates do not work yet HTTPS trackers are unsupported BEP22 isn't supported Unicode paths in the configurable directories will crash Changelog: Server edition-specific changes are noted below. Changes that apply to all versions of µTorrent can be found in docs/Changes.txt in the tarball. Server-specific changes are in the tarball.

    µTorrent 3.3.2 Stable

    Stop obsessing over Windows using cache memory. It's not a memory leak.

    µTorrent 3.4 RC

    They're test builds. You aren't supposed to get a direct link to them.
  11. Yep, we've updated it again! And we've made it easier for us to push new versions of utserver on our site, so it'll be much easier to have future updates posted.

    µTorrent 3.3.2 Stable

    I already pointed it out to the devs yesterday when I uploaded the strings. There will be a re-up today or Monday with the fixed strings.

    Windows uses memory for caching. Just stop fretting.

    right click on the node and hide it. Still, it should be auto-removed, I think.

    They're both out of date. I just updated them, though. If you use the one in the help menu, you should get an updated copy.

    µTorrent 3.3 beta

    This is a beta (expect bugs!) of µTorrent 3.3, where we've rewritten some pretty major, problematic sections of code. The biggest of these rewrites was disk i/o, to improve overall performance at both low and high speeds, whether writing to local disk, a RAID or a network drive. Please try it out and report any issues. As I mentioned before, this is an alpha, so there could be hangs, crashes or other problems. Download the new version now! Release highlights: Disk I/O system completely rewritten. Now multi-threaded and high performance. It will take advantage of multiple disks, perform better with even just one, and no one disk job can block everything (e.g slow network blocking local I/O, or allocating files) Search items in Advanced preferences Paired device removal Changelog: --2013-01-29: Version 3.3 RC 1 (build 29010) - Change: Perform search when user switches search provider --2013-01-29: Version 3.3 beta (build 29004) - Change: make progress bars not have rounded corners - Fix: Crash when adding magnet links --2013-01-28: Version 3.3 beta (build 28993) - Fix: disk write coalesce issue --2013-01-24: Version 3.3 beta (build 28965) - Fix: disk flushing issues - Fix: Show Flags in the Peer list the first time (no need for reload) - Fix: Don't add default labels to settings file --2013-01-15: Version 3.3 beta (build 28918) - Fix: Metadata downloads taking too long - Fix: Reduce time to flush disk jobs - Change: Remove Labels page from preferences, will be reintroduced in 3.4 or earlier - Fix: Installer default to existing install path if found - Change: Sort Rss feeds alphabetically --2013-01-11: Version 3.3 beta (build 28910) - Fix: Crash in the installer - Fix: stack smash bug in DHT - Fix: Show update dialogs - Change: Show warning messages when trying to open converted files of 10 more torrents --2013-01-10: Version 3.3 beta (build 28893) - Fix: Prevent automatic recreation of parent directories on filestorage writes when directory goes away (eg: drive unmounted) - Fix: assert/crash in header accelerator when torrent goes in to error state - Fix: might fix the crash of assert(_next_check_piece >= _num_checking_active) - Change: bigger average writes by making the job list a priority heap --2013-01-08: Version 3.3 beta (build 28883) - Fix: hanging problems if users cancel the installation - Fix: Uninstall from Windows control panel was broken. - Fix: Start when Windows starts preference functionality. - Fix: return codes for elevated install. --2013-01-03: Version 3.3 beta (build 28854) - Change: Disable Copy Magnet URI, Move Up Queue, and Move Up Down if Torrents(x) is selected - Fix: installed path on multibyte language systems --2012-12-26: Version 3.3 beta (build 28830) - Fix: small memory leak in DHT - Fix: Filter torrents immediately after we switch searchbox to "filtering" mode - Change: Remove the count of the parent "Labels" node - Fix: De-select all torrents when changing category - Fix: minor memory leak in search box - Fix: minor memory leak when distributed cache is enabled - Fix: crash when terminating IE frame - Fix: crash when loading resume.dat with missing .torrent files - Fix: crash in installer - Fix: Spinning arrows flicker when resizing add torrent dialogs --2012-12-16: Version 3.3 beta (build 28763) - Fix: division by zero in mkv parser - Fix: crash when detecting plugged in phone while shutting down - Fix: optimize part file read pattern - Fix: tracker announce request when torrent doesn't have metadata - Fix: search provider URLs support %s again - Fix: Maintain upload rate limit when download limit is turned off - Fix: Allow creation and seeding of read-only files by not truncating to size if the size is already correct --2012-11-21: Version 3.3 alpha (build 28582) - Fix UT Plus LREC height mis-sizing - Remove: obsolete graphic images - Fix: Crash in LAdWindow - Fix: Restore global upload rate limiting - Fix: rare crash in udp tracker code - Fix: coalesce writes from cache to disk --2012-11-08: Version 3.3 alpha (build 28508) - Fix: Install / Uninstall race condition - Fix: some timer wrapper issues - Fix: peer ID bug causing disconnects - Fix: unchecking files in add torrent dialog was broken - Fix: potential crash when anti-virus scanning would fail - Change: Control-f switches the search box to a torrent filter --2012-11-01: Version 3.3 alpha (build 28431) - Fix: Malformed web seed HTTP requests for files with spaces in their name - Fix: Language files downloading issue in BitTorrent - Change: Include all trackers in "Copy Magnet URI" command, not just the first tier --2012-10-19: Version 3.3 alpha (build 28287) - Fix: existing files would not be re-checked when adding a resolved magnet link in add torrent dialog - Fix: remove redundant virus warning when opening files - Change: Remove torrent filter, put it in the Search Box.

    Lower your cache size. Try not to go above 1GB. A cache that size doesn't really help anyway.

    Yeah. And those should probably be deleted automatically.

    It only changed the display name, not the internal name. If you had the setting off before, it should stay off.
