stop - and resume downloading later


Recommended Posts


***** warning *****

brand new user - please don't frown at a possible silly question ...

I have just started my very first torrent download - which is supposed to last a few days, it's a few-multi-mega file ...

Is it possible to stop a torrent download, switch off the computer, then resume the download next day ? Please detail your answer.

I have perused this forum (up to page 20) and found nothing about this subject. FAQ's and help file were of no help too.

Thank you very much for any help.

Thank you Moogly.

I wonder what exactly I am supposed to do the next day ...

After switching on the computer, and opening microtorrent, shall I repeat exactly all the same steps I took before, when I started downloading the torrent file for the first time ?

Will the program automatically discover it's about a former (incomplete) download, which is to be continued ? Will it seamlessly resume the download ?

Or must I do something ?

uT is a torrent manager so it will continue to download the data where you stopped them the last time.

Same thing for the torrents your are seeding.

uT use config files in %appdata%/utorrent like resume.dat and settings.dat. You NEED to save this folder before reinstalling your OS or formatting your HD in the future.
