utorrent puts everything in 'downloads' folder

Recommended Posts

Hi, hoping to ask for some help. Utorrent puts everything in the 'downloads' folder on my PC on C drive. So now my local disc is full while there is still tons of room on other discs. Any help, suggestions, etc? TIA

Look at your settings to change where the files are saved to. This is something you need to look at in your settings there is option to do this.

Thanks for the reply, I thought I had done this by pic related, I guess I forgot and need to do it in one of the top 2 fields. Thanks much again.

Ok, still having some problems here. Files are still being stored in This PC- Downloads, also possibly in This PC- Videos, not sure if they're being stored in the selected folder which is Elements- Video because I copied and pasted a bunch of videos from Downloads before trying to redirect where I want them stored. This definitely a new thing as I've never had this problem before despite using Utorrent for the past decade or more. Will post second post to finish w/ screenshots. Any help would be appreciated, thanks very much.

You need to specify the download location in "Put new downloads in:".

"Store .torrent" - is for the *.torrent files, not your downloads...

Thanks, I finally did that but couldn't post because of post limits and it still kept happening so I looked up old posts on google and saw where a member said it didn't apply to already picked torrents and I had a lot in queue so I deleted all of them and tried a new one and it worked fine. Thanks again everyone for all the help.
