problem with using uTorrent on a USB


Recommended Posts

I'm using uTorrent on a USB drive and it seems to only work if the drive letter corresponds to the drive letter it was on when I installed the program. I already went through all the preferences and settings to change it to the new drive letter, but it's still attempting to refer to the original drive letter (and therefore I get "not found" errors when trying to dl torrents).

Part of the problem might be that I don't have a settings.dat file in the same directory as uTorrent.exe, but this file wasn't generated during the installation so it doesn't exist period.

Anyone know how to fix this? Thanks.

1. right-click on My Computer

2. select Manage

3. under Storage select Disk Management

4. right-click on the drive and select Change Drive Letter and Paths...

5. select the same drive latter the drive had last time.

6. restart uTorrent

Does this help?

For some reason, I started working again all on its own. If it acts up again, I'll try these suggestions.

As for 1.8, I've read that the many of the improvements (like being self-referential) will make it a lot easier to run on a USB. I plan to get it when it's finally stable, but in the meantime, I'm making the best of 1.7x.
