Reseeding after reinstalling OS


Recommended Posts


I recently had to format my HDD and reinstall Windows XP but i was able to save all my .torrent files and the data that belongs to them. Now I installed uTorrent again and opened the .torrent files but it begins to download although the complete files can be found in the same directory. Is there a way I can tell uTorrent about this, so the program will simply go on seeding?

Thank you in advance,


*Edit: I tried that:

"Loading torrents in µTorrent

Loading a single torrent for seeding is simple enough provided you know the location of the .torrent and the files.

1. In µTorrent, click File > Add Torrent (no default save)

2. Browse your way to the .torrent file you wish to seed and select.

3. Browse your way to the folder where the files are located and select the folder.

The torrent should appear in the torrent window and load (you will see the % climb up as µTorrent checks the file).


but when it reaches 100% it begins to leech instead of seeding.

Hmm now it does, looks like the .torrent file was the problem...
