ady4um Posted June 13, 2008 Report Share Posted June 13, 2008 I'm using ut stable 1.7.7 encapsulated. I would like to test the beta version, without "disturbing" the current ut folder. I also would like to continue downloading the torrents I have already started in my stable version, and to have the possibility to "return" to the stable version afterwards. I don't want to run both versions at the same time, just one at a time. In order to run the beta version also encapsulated in its own folder, I downloaded it to an empty folder and saved there an empty settings.dat file.Currently, I have a multifile torrent in the stable version. Several files are skipped, and several are downloaded completely. Also currently there is no file partially downloaded. All the files are either skipped or completely downloaded. However, I do have a uTorrentPartFile saved in the current torrent's download location. The torrent is currently stopped in the stable version.In this status, and keeping in mind I want to test the beta and (maybe) go back to the stable version afterwards, my first question would be, should I *copy* the .torrent file to the new beta .torrent folder? Should I *move* it? Or should I use/add exactly the *same* .torrent file from the *same .torrent folder*? Is there any difference between these options?In any case, when using the beta I will choose to skip all the files in the torrent, just from the start (from the add dialog). So after adding, in one way or another, the .torrent file to ut beta, I want to unskip a file I haven't downloaded already. In this way, I would be testing the beta, and also taking advantage of the time and the bandwidth (instead of just downloading something I already have or some useless file). Probably I should also unskip the files I already have saved using the stable version, so I can seed them at the same time I download the just unskipped file.In this status, should I use the same "download location" in the beta than the one I've been using in the stable version? Or should I copy the files to another location and then set this copy as the download location? In which case I can take better advantage of the files I already have, including the uTorrentPartFile? Does the uTorrentPartFile get unusable for the stable version after using the beta? And does the beta is capable of using the current uTorrentPartFile generated by the stable version?Thank you in advance for your help. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
