Upgraded, all completed torrents now 99% and renamed?


Recommended Posts

Last night I upgraded from 1.8.5 (Build 17091) to 2.0.4(Build 22150)

Just to be safe I made a copy of:

Completed files that I was seeding

Incomplete files that I was still downloading

I also copied the .torrent files.

When I had completed the upgrade I added each .torrent file but notice the completed files are now at 99% and downloading. The .torrent file has been copied and has a ".1" appended to it.

I done a search before posting:

If I force a re-check the file does not go back to 99% (as I saw in other posts)

Ive changed core affinity and disk cache as per


but no change.

So it's normal. Edge pieces between downloaded files and skipped files are discarded. So that's why the forced recheck doesn't reach 100%. If you start the torrent job, µT will redownload these edge pieces.

Anyway upgrading should not imply that, it's transparent and doesn't affect the torrents. Next time, make a backup copy of the folder %appdata%\utorrent.

While researching and searching the forums I did come across posts regarding ~uTorrentPartFile and thought it might be a similar situation I was experiencing but your response confirms it, thank you.

I did make a copy of %appdata%\utorrent but I wanted to go back to original preferences and was worried if I kept this folder I wouldn't get a fresh install.
