Phazor Posted January 13, 2006 Report Share Posted January 13, 2006 Hi there,First a few words about my experiences with the program:I have dedicated an old IBM Desktop-PC only to torrent purposes (P4 1.8GHz / 512MB PC133 RAM) and i used to be a 'hardcore' BitComet user.But when i discovered how much, MUCH easier µTorrent runs on that system i knew its time for an immediate change.The difference is absolutely STUNNING to say the least, it often took MINUTES for BC to restart the torrents after a reboot (probably due to the rather slow PC133 RAM) while µT starts them absolutely INSTANTLY and doesnt fiddle around in the background for half an eternity before something goes. Im really glad that i finally tried µT out!Also, the difference of CPU usage is simply amazing. While BC used to use up to full 100% at times (50%-60% average) µT works perfecty fine with a CPU usage of only 5% (in words FIVE PERCENT) maximum!! Thats what i call a difference.....The least i can do is to say THANK YOU for this great application, i always thought BitComet is the best there was, there is, and there ever will be, but obviously i was wrong all the time. IMO µT 1.4 beats BC with absolute ease, most of all when it comes to ressource usage.Now to the request:Actually µT has everything that i learned to appreciate from BC, except one thing, which is very important to me.It seems like there is no existing thread regarding this feature since 'Remaining Harddrive Space' brought no results, so here goes.The feature id like to request is a feature similar to BC which shows how much space there is left on the harddrive at which the current path in the 'Save To' window points to.Example:Lets say i open a torrent, and the 'Save To' window opens, and the path currently points to anywhere at say F:\, then the remaining space of F:\ will be shown in the 'Save To' window, telling me whether the torrent im about to download will fit on that partition or not.Now when i change the F in front of the path to say E then the remaining space of E:\ will be shown instead, and so on.This is quite important (to me) because that way i can see at the first glance whether there is enough space on a particular partition for the torrent that im about to download, or if i have to download it to another partition instead.To see how this feature exactly works just check BC for reference. (If youre in doubt.)O.K., thats about it, all thats left to say is that i really hope that this feature will find its way into this great application sooner or later as it definitely makes things a lot easier.Thanks in advance, and let me say THANK YOU once more for this great application which is really perfect to be used on not-so-powerful machines like my dedicated one.Greets,Phazor Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
