deleting .torrent files


Drymon

Recommended Posts

doesn't work for me. if i choose remove and delete .torrent+data,it does delete the data,but the .torrent file still remains where it was downloaded to.

My OS is Win 2k Pro SP4 with all updates.

If I choose remove and .delete torrent,it just removes the task from the torrent screen,but still

not the .torrent file.

It only deletes the torrent file in %AppData%\uTorrent. If you saved it anywhere else, it won't delete that.

Interestingly enough, 1.2.2 and the betas up until around 1.3-build390 did delete the .torrent files in the directory I save them in. I put all .torrent files in C:\Scratch\BitTorrent, and have that set as the default download directory in Folder Options. Used to be that when I right-clicked and did delete .torrent or .torrent + data, it'd get the .torrent file out of C:\Scratch\BitTorrent too. Now it doesn't do that, and I have to manually remove the .torrent. Annoying, but not life-threatening.

I keep seeing this posted (and the reason I signed up here was because I was experiencing the same problem), which makes me think the development team should really consider including some kind of functionality that would let it delete the original file on a "Delete .torrent" command as well, since this is the behavior that it seems an awful lot of people are expecting.

When it auto loads the torrent, it does add the .LOADED extension to it. Is it possible the program is not looking up that extension, only the .TORRENT extension?

I'm also finding that with build 406, it does not auto-move the torrents if I have the thing set to auto-load them from a folder, and when I tell it to delete the torrent, with auto-load on, it also does not work.

Where does it store the torrents on a Win 98 system, by the way? Once I have it set to auto-delete the torrent after it is loaded, I can never find the temp file or whatever that was the torrent.

I guess I just wanted to test that feature. Normally I want to keep the torrent until I check if a file really did download ok and all, until I have the data itself backed up onto optical media.

Thanks

Oh man.

It really seems like you want to spend more time challenging / discrediting / deleting posts of folks who report bugs than actually trying to address them. :(

Sometimes it makes me wonder why I even bother to try to contribute something informational or opinion related at all. Don't you guys WANT to make Utorrent work properly??? Don't you even WANT people to comment on the product, and give suggestions, information? Or is it easier to just be all defensive and lash out because you are not hearing what you want to hear, like all praise all the time?

A little humility and patience and a better "bed side manner", as it were, could really go a long way...

Where is Firon challenging or discrediting you? I'm having a hard time finding it. If you're talking about the ignoring, there's really nothing wrong with that "policy." I don't want to sound "mean" or whatever, but what use is a bug report if it refers to an old build, and might possibly have been fixed in the newest builds already? It's almost akin to asking for PE, even now, after it's already been implemented (there was at least one thread asking this in the past few days) -- the only difference is that we don't know whether it's actually been fixed. And that's the role of beta testers -- to tell us what problems there are in the latest builds.

If you're referring to "challenging" as in "oh why should this be implemented," then you have to realize that µTorrent is the way it is (µ) because of this constant pruning of ideas to see which ones would be good to add.
