"Missing" .torrent files with v1.8?

Thanks Firon.

After a bit more poking around I found a setting in Preferences->Directories->Store .torrents in: that allows me to pick a common directory for all .torrents to be stored.

But is there a way to have the .torrent automatically placed in the directory with the d/l files? I've had trouble in the past with trying to figure out which .torrent is which. Having them stored with the d/l files is an easy way for me to keep track.

Thanks

>Above the DL files? You mean in the completed folder? You can enable "move to completed folder"... is that what you're talking about?

Sorry it's taken so long to reply.

Not exactly. In 1.7 the .torrent file was placed in a folder along with another folder with the d/l'ed files. At least with Dimeadozen.org. I've not d/l from anywhere else so it might be different.

But with 1.8 the best I can do is have ut save the .torrent to a directory and then move it with the d/l'ed files myself.

OK I don't want to beat a dead horse here, especially because it's really not that big of a deal but....

I have a single torrent directory. In it I have separate directories for each artist/band and then direct the download to whatever artist it is. ut1.7 put the .torrent file in the directory with the d/l files. For instance I have a "Jack Johnson" directory. I'm d/l the "Jack Johnson, July 2nd, 2008, Hyde Park,London, England" show and create a directory with that name. So I'd get jj2008-07-02.at831.R09.shn.torrent file in the same directory as the files for that show. It's so I can keep track of what torrent files go with which show. When I go back to seed a show I know which file to open.

At one time I let all the torrent files pile up into a single directory. But there's a lot of times it's tough to remember which file is which. Is jj2008-07-02.at831.R09.shn.torrent Jack Johnson or JJ Grey or Jerry Jeff Walker or Jimmy Buffett playing w/ Jack Johnson? Is todd 4-21-02 SHN.torrent Todd Snider, Todd Rundgren or Big Head Todd?

If I put the torrent file in a directory with the artist I can tell. ut 1.7 put the torrent in the directory with the d/l files.

BUT since I figured out how to get the .torrent files to a single directory I just have remember to move them after a download. So it's not a huge problem. It would be great to have the option to pick which directory a .torrent was saved every time I start a new d/l instead of have a single default directory.

If there's a better way to do any of this I'd appreciate any advice. I'm pretty new at all of this.

Thanks for the replies littlefire
