khyber Posted March 19, 2008 Report Share Posted March 19, 2008 Heya.I'm a pretty "heavy" uTorrent user. I mean, it's running all day and I hardly have any problems with it, just a few crashes from time to time (maybe because I have almost 600 torrents loaded (most of them are seeding)).Today, I had to manually restart my laptop (running Windows XP SP2), because it freezed. After the restart, I immediately started uTorrent (after I plugged in my external hard drive, where most of my downloads are stored).I was kinda shocked when I saw the uTorrent screen. It was "blank". I mean, there were no torrents in the list, see here what I'm talking about:After that "shock", I closed uTorrent and restarted it (which hopefully wasn't a mistake concerning the ability to restore my torrent tasks), but nothing changed.Then I made a backup of uTorrent's Application Data folder (well, I probably only need resume.dat, right?), where the resume.dat has only 58 Byte, while resume.dat.old is 634 KByte - I guess this is the file containing information about my loaded torrents?So, what I did next was replacing the resume.dat (58 Byte) with resume.dat.old (634 KB) and hoping that this would solve my problem, but it didn't. Still the same "blank" uTorrent UI.This is where I got stuck. I don't know what to do to restore my torrents, which I REALLY HOPE is possible. Reloading/adding all those files would be a HUGE pain in the ass, as you can imagine.Thanks in advance for any help! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
