Copy completed downloads

With respect, I really don't see it as a bloat option. Lots of music I download doesn't come tagged the way I want it. Copying lets me move my downloads to my native music directory where I can tag them as desired while still seeding the originals for others.

Moving the files manually would require you to stop the torrent. Move the files in windows. R-click on the torrent. Set new download location and point it to where you placed the files. This is a lot of effort and results in disconnecting from all the peers and sending the stop event to a tracker insinuating you are hit-n-running.

Besides a lot of people want to move their files after a torrent has completed for easy management.

Manually copying the files takes hardly any effort (and requires no action in µtorrent at all) and only a small group of people in interested in such a functionality.

Alderan, I use the Move option with my Torrents and just move them to a diff folder. I see NO hiccups when allowing uT to do the move for me.

As far as the original poster and doing a copy, if you are just simply trying to make a backup of the files, setup UT to move the files to a different folder upon completion and then use a third party file synch tool to copy the files to another drive/machine. SyncToy works well, is free and can be automated on the command line. Use Scheduled tasks to run it once an hour or whatever to avoid the problem with UT and having to run extra commands once per Torrent.
