Pause and Stop...


Recommended Posts

In the end, µTorrent simply stops all torrents before it completely exits anyway, so if you're shutting your computer down, they are essentially equivalent.

In short, it doesn't matter for your case.

But if you're still interested in knowing the distinction...

Pause will pause the selected torrent job(s), but won't actually stop it. This tells µTorrent to attempt to retain connections to peers without having to re-establish them like starting stopped torrent jobs would require. It is useful for when you need quick access to bandwidth. Realize that while µTorrent won't drop the connections on its own accord, the connection can still get dropped by the client on the other end of the connection.

Stop will stop the selected torrent job(s). All connections with peers are dropped.
