moved torrents and files to the new computer

Hi,

I moved torrent content files and all my torrents to a new computer. I have them on various hard drives and i made sure that the new computer path names for content files (by renaming the hard drive letter) matched the old path names in the old computer. i also have the torrents in the same place but utorrent is trying to pick up the paths for the torrents on the old computer.

So i'm getting an error under status (Error: Can't open .torrent file c:\Users\eric-pc\documents\torrents

"eric-pc" is the name of my old computer. The new path to load torrent files is C:\Users\Eric\Documents\Torrents. i've specified this new path eric vs the old eric-pc under preferences -->directories-->location of .torrents but utorrent is still trying to load the old torrents from the old path. is there a way to change this without doubleclicking on each torrent and loading them thereby having to specify download locations for each of my 500 torrents. Any help would be appreciated!

the issue is not that the content files have the incorrect path, i already have that mapped out correctly. actualtorrentcontentpath_zpsc3d204ec.png

the issue is the torrent files themselves aren't loading from the local directories that the torrent files are stored in even though it is adjusted in preferences torrentdirectories_zpsa48b52a8.png

as you can see in this next image the utorrent thinks the actual torrent file NOT the content file is located in

c:\users\eric-pc\documents\torrents the path with "eric-pc" is the path where the old machine is located. The new path just has c:\users\eric\documents\torrents.

Is there a way to fix this all at once? when i open the resume.dat in bencode editor it only allows me to edit the path of the actual CONTENT file.

That is exactly my point! how do i change the path of the torrents where utorrent adds the torrent files, NOT the actual content files. c:\users\eric-pc\documents\torrents this is the old computer path. this old path needs changed to the new one. And again NOT the content files themselves which i know how to do with BENCODE editor.
