Issue with adding torrent previously downloaded for seeding


Recommended Posts

I have a curious problem. I rebuilt my machine and upgraded from utorrent 1.8.5 (RIP) to 3.2.3. I have several internal HDDs plus one external HDD (2TB Seagate) containing hundreds of completed torrents. Then I went through the process of seeding all my completed torrents. I have no issues with adding/seeding completed torrents in my internal HDDs. When I add the .torrent file, utorrent checks the completed file and seeds it so no issues.

However, it is not the same with completed torrents in my external HDD (currently 500G free space). After adding the .torrent file, utorrent checks it as usual but starts to download the torrent even after 100% checking. When I check the target folder (right click > open containing folder), I can see files previously downloaded plus duplicate files now being downloaded ie

file previously downloaded => abcdefg.avi

file now being downloaded => abcdefg.avi.!ut

I am at a loss on what to do. I just want to seed and not to re-download them. Can anyone help?

Win7 Ultimate SP1 32 bit

utorrent 3.2.3 build 28705 32 bit
