moving torrents and data to a new hard disk


Recommended Posts

I have 300gb of torrents I have download into my special Completed Dowloads folder, and I need to move them to a bigger drive.

I created a new folder on the new drive, changed my settings so that completed torrents now go there. All good.

Then, I copied my old completed torrents and completed files to the new completed torrents folder on the new drive.

I erased all the torrents from utorrent (not the data).

I went to all the completed torrents and opened them in utorrent.

They don't seem to connect to the data, and are in queue to download.

I must have done something wrong, but can't find instructions for this in the faq or the forum. What do you call this? Can you guide me to the instructions?

Thank you.

And, I searched the FAQ and the Home page - nothing on "migration". What is the url on which to find the migration guide you speak of?

Also, the thread you sent me to suggested right-click/advanced/set-download-location. When I do that, set-download-location is greyed-out.

Still wondering...

Stop all your torrents before changing the location. How do you want uT continues to dl/ul a torrent if you are moving the data! :)

For the guide, read the steps about autoloading torrents if you have a ton to change the path.:


Anyway the BEncode editor is really great to modify en-masse in one click the path of all your torrents (resume.dat)
