uTorrent Directories

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am a long time user and just require some assistance / clarification if this is possible.

I have an external mass USB storage device connected and use this for downloading and seeding which is almost fall with about 2TB remaining.

Yes, this is a first world problem and I am unable just to move all the contents to a new drive as it is 43TB (I have a lot of hard drives).

What I wanted to confirm, is that if I change directories in preferences for the location of files and torrents. Will it still continue to upload my existing files stored in another directory.


For Example:

Existing Setup:

Put new downloads in: E:/TOR/Downloads

Move completed downloads to: E:/TOR/Complete

Store .torrents in: E:/TOR/Downloads/Tor

Move .torrents for finished jobs to: E:/TOR/Complete/Tor


Updated Setup:

I want to the settings to the new drive as below.

Put new downloads in: F:/TOR/Downloads

Move completed downloads to: F:/TOR/Complete

Store .torrents in: F:/TOR/Downloads/Tor

Move .torrents for finished jobs to: F:/TOR/Complete/Tor


So once I change the directory, I want to keep uploading my existing and new files on both drives.

In summary, all new downloaded and completed files on the F:/ drive. But still upload the old files without moving them to the new drive which are stored on the E:/ drive

Most of my files are seeding, sorry for the essay.

Changes to those settings aren't retroactive to already loaded torrents. You won't have to do anything other than change the settings to get things to do what you want.

Thanks for clarifying that.

I was hoping I didn't have to manually move the files.

You can consider changing/swapping your drive letters E<->F ...
