it kind of works, but you will lose any data which was on the torrent. for example, if you have seeded the data 10 times, it won't be there. And if you have to download just a bit again, the ratio data will be screwed up like hell. for example, if you have a 700MB sized data file, and if for some reason it starts to RE-download just 1 MB again, then your ratio will be ridiculously high.

You might not mind that, but it's still wrong.

That's true, but it would only affect the info kept by uTorrent, thus interfering with the local torrent management. The tracker(s) will still have the correct data, so you won't lose anything as far as they are concerned (most importantly, upload count).

I thought editing it with BEncode Editor would solve that problem, but it didn't. It's easier to replace file paths with though.

I strongly advise against using version BEncode Editor 6.10u since it has a staggering number of NINE virus warnings!!!

Nothing false positive about that one.

I recommend version version 5.10 unicode. In zipped version it has no virus warnings, even though when you unzip it, it does have virus warnings.

I suggest you stop spreading the bullshit about viruses.

Edit: I'll indulge you this once, just because you're being so hardheaded about this.

VirusTotal scans on BEncode Editor v0.7.1.0 (the latest version):

Oh look, there are other users vouching for BEncode Editor. I'm glad, and thank them for that.

Most enlightening that this is all the dirt Symantec can find on it: because they discovered that few people use BEncode Editor, it's automatically a "high" impact threat.

Because it's UPX'd? My my, by that measure, µTorrent should also be marked a virus -- it's UPX'd as well. Why isn't it? Oh wait -- surprise surprise -- it's because more people use µTorrent, so it would look bad for the antivirus vendors if they made a huge cockup and incorrectly marked such a popular piece of software as malware. Meanwhile, it's okay for independent developers like myself to take the fall. Thanks for helping.

Old versions are kept up only for historical purposes. If I included viruses in them that were so easily discovered, why the hell would I keep them up after releasing, and all the while encourage the use of a newer version that's clearly clean?

Yes indeed, I'm markedly annoyed with you right now, zploek.

Not to be coy, but uTorrent is too (not 170-171-177, but version 1.7.6 and from version 1.8.3 upward) , marked as "Suspicious" by RISING. I've mailed RISING about that btw, awaiting response.

So you should try not to feel persecuted by Big Antivirus Corp because you are "small" and uTorrent is "big".

I can imagine that you do feel like that, if you've had bad experiences with them. So, I get it if you would feel jaded about anti virus companies, but I've just come through a very, very bad crash because of a virus, so yes, I am cautious about stuff.

For the record:

I wasn't accusing you of willingly put a virus in anything. I just think it's worth noting that so many virus scanners have these sort of reports about your program.
