skyrl Posted March 10, 2016 Report Share Posted March 10, 2016 The problem For now, when end user wants to move a resource (eg. file) downloaded through µTorrent, he has to do it through context menu of uTorrent if he wants the torrent to remain seeded But most of people just move the resource through windows explorer, therefore the source is lost and quite nobody knows how to reconnect it. Why? Half of users just download all their torrents to a same junk folder, the other half put up category folders where they store the downloads But after a week, a month or a year, Most of them eventualy moves the non-deleted content to another place : archive drives, subcategories, and then the seed is broken Or Most of them rename the files or directories, and a big proportion of user delete the "junk" files (nfo/sample/...), and then the seed is broken At that point, let's say one month after initial leech, 50% of the resources that has not been deleted is stored on their computer but not seeded. One year after the initial leech, probably 99%. Quite nobody would have the patience and the know-how to reconnect the broken seeds to the new locations of their resources Minor implementations a/ For any currently seeded torrent, allow folder and file rename straight from windows explorer, then record the change to pinpoint the torrent resources to their new name and location b/ Scan disk to find lost resources that have been renamed or moved somewhere else by end user ; reconnect those files to the currenty seeded torrents c/ Scan disk for orphaned .torrent, add them up to the uTorrent queue and apply (b) option to relocate the torrent file list to the resources found. Automaticaly re-fetch missing torrents from one or several trackers, according to µTorrent list of missing torrents (see tracker tab), or resume.dat d/ Always and automaticaly seed uncomplete torrents, and Auto-redownload missing little nfo/cover/sub/sample files, ie. if they've been deleted or found missing - when they represents less than 10% of the total size Major implementation 1/ a process that scans your disk for big AVI/MKV/MP3/... files, query trackers with their size & MD5 to find & fetch torrents hold by the tracker that include this file(s) 2/ then with all minor implementation stuff : auto-download from one or several trackers all the related torrents and pinpoint them to the resources found on the disk Since a same resource belongs to many different torrents among the same tracker or among several trackers, this allow to seed multiple torrents from only one root-resource Implementing something like this into µTorrent would dramaticaly make the quantity of seeders explose all over the web, and would benefit all the community. If there is any plugin that does this feature even partially, i'm interested in your recommandations. Cheers Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
