All Torrents Suddenly Gone?


Recommended Posts

Ok here is what happened.

I tried to open a (!) torrent. It had already been downloaded so I did not see a problem in doing that?

I tried to use what was in it and then my entire computer crashed I guess. I could still move my mouse but my Firefox crashed my Windows Media Player crashed and the torrent folder showed that it had loaded to 100%. I could not access my task manager so I manually re-started the computer. When I came back (since I restarted) all of my torrents were gone. Every single one.

I tried to find some in my downloads (where my torrents go) but apart from a few they were gone. I don't know if those torrents work anyways.

So my questions are

1. How did this happen?

Could this be because I opened a (!) torrent? Could it be because I tried to download a torrent that had a virus? (because before this happened I had started downloading some other stuff) How do I prevent this from happening again?

2. Can I get the torrents back or do I have to re-download them all?

Also if this is relevant I use Windows 7 and I use UTorrent 2.0.2
