HELP! Error:System Cannot Find The Path Specified


Recommended Posts

Can someone please help!

I keep getting this error-

Error:System Cannot Find The Path Specified

whenever I download a file with a long folder path.

What I end up doing is going into the Files Tab and saying Don't Download.

Then I highlight a small section of files and choose Normal Priority.

Once those are done I highlight another small section and download those.

I can eventually get all the files this way, but it is impracticale.

I'm using uTorrent v 1.4, Win XP Pro SP 2 and a D-Link DI-524 router.

I have the firewall turned off in my router and I'm using E-Trust Armor Suite as my firewall.

It occasionally pops up and asks if I want to allow uTorrent to connect and I choose allow.

I can download most torrents just fine.

I seem to have the problem only when the path and/or filenames are long.

I get the same problem when I use BitComet.

It's driving me nuts!

Any suggestions?

Someone else suggested something similar.

I used to have a folder on my desktop called Torrents where all my downloads automatically went to.

Someone suggested making a folder in My Documents and save to there.

That apparently isn't working either.

So do you think I should make a folder in My Computer and download there?

Or should I make a folder on the C drive?

Or should I just download the default folder of the torrent to C?

"So do you think I should make a folder in My Computer and download there?" not trying to be a dick but you cant make a folder in my computer :)

i keep getting the same error when downloading files. dunno if there is a patch to automatically update files that have stopped that would be great

tried solution above.. didnt work for me. i even went back to ver 1.3 and still am getting this error. seems the file comes up missing after about 10-15 minutes of starting a download. but its only about 2-3 torrents that do this. i have other torrents been downloading 3 days straight no problems. maybe its just a conflict between the tracker and utorrent?

that would be what i think could be a problem. hope this helps. :D

Didn't work for me either.

The thing is I can click on the File tab and deselect certain files to be downloaded.

Right now I am downloading a Roger Waters torrent from demonoid.

I have gone into the files tab and selected and deselected so many files.

I've tracked it down to 2 files.

I can download all the others, but everytime I click on eitheer of those 2 files and set the download to normal, it gives me the path not found error.

I have asked and no one else has had this problem with this torrent.

The files have long path names and that is the problem I get all the time.

Here's an example of 1 of the files.

Roger Waters - The Wall Live In Berlin\Roger Waters - The Wall Live In Berlin(Disc 1)\04 - Roger Waters - Roger Waters, Joe Chemay, John Joyce, Stan Farber, And Jim Haas - The Happiest days Of Our Lives.mp3

I don't know of a way to edit the filename/path to make it shorter.

I think that would fix it if I could do it.

I just wonder why no one else is having the same problem.

Actually, yes it did!

I'd stopped the torrent and restarted it but it was still pointed at the old directory.

I went to the site and redownloaded the .torrent file and pointed it to the one on C: and it appears to be working now.

Thanks You!

Can you explain why this is?

Or do I not even want to know.

open utorrent ->option -> preferences -> set a folder for locations. (u can create a new folder.. or choose one already made. i chose C:/downloads . you dont have to uninstall utorrent.. or re-download the torrent file . just close and re-open.

the cause of this problem for me was. adding a second H drive to my pc

I was having the same problema. "System Cannot Find The Path Specified" then it would disconnect the torrent and I'd have to restart it. So I got off my lazy ass and checked out my settings from the suggestions in the FAQ. Then I set a folder directly on C drive for torrents and torrent downloads.

Now the damn thing downloads a movie approximately every hour! :-) I'm very happy. Thanks to the members here!
