Moving Magnet torrents from HDD to new SSD

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,

 

I have a lot of magnet linked torrents that I have on my uTorrent which are not started yet - i.e. their .torrent files are not downloaded. They are just present in the client ready to be downloaded. Since my HDD is failing, I would like to move all the magnet links from the old HDD client to the new client on SSD. Can you please tell me on how I can do this? If I save the resume.dat file from the uTorrent directory, would that help?

Or is there any way I can paste the magnet links after copying them using the Copy Magnet URI option and then paste them so that I can get all the torrents to be downloaded rather than manually adding them one by one? Will it work for multiple magnet URIs? How will I get it to work?

The link of my client and what is the state right now - https://i.imgur.com/5EiVDbs.jpg

Any advice would be highly appreciated. 

Thank you.

The question is - do you want to move only the magnets (.torrent files) , change only the download directory for the future downloads from them, the whole utorrent installation-place,  or all?

Only the magnet links - but I haven't actually downloaded them yet, in the sense I haven't started the download, but I have magnet-ed them for future downloads. 

Is there any way that I can copy the Magnet URIs from all those torrents and add them to uTorrent fresh installed on SSD. all at the same time, rather than individually adding them? 

Thanks for the reply. :)

So, for those not-started magnets, you can use the old resume.dat after you re-install/locate utorrent  (if you still want to download to the exact same location) .

*IF* the download location has changed now you will still need to left-click "change download location" on each one.

 

The problem will be with the rest of the downloaded torrents, that you might need to either delete in uT or take care that the the old .torrent file and the downloaded file for each is in the exact same path as before BEFORE you run the new uTorrent for the first time. If not, it will warn you of  "torrent/file-not-found".

Ahh thank you. Also, not sure if this is actually relevant but I did seem to find a thread which asks how to bulk add magnet URIs to utorrent, where the reply was to use MiniUI by Ultima I guess. I tried but it doesn't seem to work for me at all. The steps were not clear, I might've done something wrong, or it might be the version. Could you confirm that we can add multiple Magnet URIs through MiniUI to utorrent, if so how please?

 

Thank you so much Rafi

Never used it, so no. Was moving/reusing the resume file not good enough ?

This is what I was talking about:

 - No idea on how to use it though.

And yes, I will be using the resume.dat file as you said, but wanted to explore if that was an option as well. Thank you so much again :)
