ikotsu Posted September 16, 2010 Report Share Posted September 16, 2010 WIN 7 64bit / uTorrent 2.2 (Build 21882)I'm experiencing a problem with setting the actual download location on uTorrent for files that have been downloaded. As others have posted, I also experience "File cannot be found" if the download is set within the configuration to be moved to a separate folder after completion. However, the problem extends further, in my instance. Here's a brief tutorial on how to recreate my problem, and I'll explain step by step the issues I see as I go along so that you can attempt to reproduce this.Open uTorrentSelect any currently Finished torrent.Open the torrent menu, Advanced, Set Download Location ** This is where the problem begins. When using the file browser to attempt to locate files, my File Type drop down shows two options (All Files and $). Neither show "All Files", they show only folders. I have tried this with multiple locations on multiple partitions. This current build and the build immediately previous I experienced this problem. However, 2 builds prior, I was able to see all the files currently in any folder, as well as select the appropriate file ( whether it be .mkv, .avi, .mp3, etc. ). Assuming this has been updated to simply allow you to select the directory that the file is currently in, I click "OK" when I navigate with the open file browser to the folder the file is currently contained in.I click force re-check; there is no file found, and the torrent status reverts to the "Stopped" state.Assuming the program will automatically locate the target file when attempting to re-download, possibly just an error with the file browser, uTorrent attempts to download a new copy of the file, and a new file is created within my downloads directory. This new file is named whatever folder name I selected in the previous few steps for my download location.Visual Explination - My download directory is D:\Torrents\In ProgressFiles are moved from \Torrents\In Progress to \Torrents\Completed when they finish.When the file finishes, and the dialog pops up saying "File cannot be found" I use the Set Download Location file browser.I selected the Completed folder as my folder for the download, as I cannot see specific files in the browser, only folders.I press the Start button on the torrent I just set the download location for.uTorrent downloads a new copy into the In Progress folder, and a new FILE is created within the \Torrents\Completed folder called "Completed". This file has no extensions and no properties. As a small note, files that have already been downloaded prior to the newest updates are unaffected as long as I do not attempt to change their location.I'm aware that there are several other threads regarding issues with the new File Location feature, but I have not seen any with a similar issue to this, so I created a new thread. Feel free to move / delete as needed, and please let me know if any other information is needed. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
