Going to re-install OS but i'm downloading.. can i salvage data?!


Recommended Posts

Hi, well as the title suggests I'm going to re-install my OS(because it's kanker >:()

But, I'm currently 1/2 way through a 6GB file.. and it's taken me 4 days to get this far and i don't want to start it again!

I can move the downloaded stuff(of my file) on to my raid0 back up drive and I've still got the .torrent for it (appliactiondata/utorrent/)

but once i've re-installed my OS and utorrent, is there any chance i can move back the downloaded content and simply add it back to utorrent without having to re-download the WHOLE file again?

Any replied will be <333333333'd

http://utorrent.com/guides.php "Migration guide" would cover it.

Remember though you can just http://utorrent.com/faq.php#How_can_I_backup_my_settings.3F and then restore it on the new OS install. You may need to change drive letters/paths for torrents and data however and as such should check out http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=31306 and make sure you backed everything up THOROUGHLY before format c: ;)
