C:\Users\...\AppData\Roaming\uTorrent : Fails to delete old .torrent


Recommended Posts

In branches 1.8 and 2.0, Win X86 but not Mac:

The program fails to delete "not in use" .torrent files in its own local "cache" that has this general path:


If you delete all the .torrent files in this directory, you have to load them in again. Another related design flaw.

Suggestions to fix the problem:

0. Don't store any .torrent files at all in this file area, out in the open.

1. Put all active .torrent files in a file like "active-torrents.zip" and put all non active torrent files into "expired-torrents.zip" -- the zip file need not be compressed.

2. Delete the "expired-torrents.zip" file once per week, or whenever its age is too old (from its file creation date).
