Can you explain this?

I'm not a English speaking or writing person so please explain these utorrnet "Migrating your files to utorrent" article with example.

Renaming appended files

Some clients will append partially downloaded files with an extra extension in order to lock them and keep them from being accidentally accessed by other applications, which might cause some problems with the downloading process (µTorrent also does this, if requested, by appending the extension .!ut to its files).

For µTorrent to resume those partially downloaded files these extra extensions must be removed. This can be tedious but there is nothing to it. We can however make a small batch file that will simplify the job.

Open Notepad and write this line into it (replace "bc!" with which ever file extension you need to remove):

@for /r %i in (*.bc!) do @move "%~fi" "%~dpni"

In Notepad, File > Save As: RENAME.BAT

Open the location folder for the partially downloaded files you need to rename.

Drag and drop the RENAME.BAT file into this folder

Right click on RENAME.BAT > Open; a DOS window will briefly appear as it scrolls through all the files in the folder as they are getting renamed.

Repeat from step 3 for each folder containing files that need renaming.
