Corrupt Resume.dat


Recommended Posts


My PC crashed unexpectedly, and unfortunately it seems to have affected uTorrent's resume file. It's detecting it as corrupt (giving it the BAD extension) and basically removed every torrent I had active. I am wondering if there is a way to restore or fix this file manually? Maybe there's a segment in the file that's unfinished and I can simply delete it..

Thanks in advance for any help


Well, I guess there isn't any way to fix it, and I've tried different ways but the file structure itself is kind of unreadable.

If there is a way I'd like to hear it, but as of now I'll just write it off as an unplanned purge of the torrent list and try to get everything I had back up and running. As for why I don't normally purge it anyway, I liked to keep everything I had in the list (as stopped) for logging purposes and to prevent accidental re-downloads of the same file in the future, but it was getting pretty large.
