Putting all the ~uTorrentPartFiles into individual folder?


Recommended Posts

I usually download torrents not fully, and I still seed those. As a result, I got hard drive full of those ~uTorrentPartFiles into various folders. I know there's option "diskio.use_partfile", which can be disabled but imo it only does no better - a result is drive full of garbage files that were actually in the torrent, but that has real extensions/names at a size of several hundred kbs. What's worse - as oppose to ~uTorrentPartFiles, those won't get deleted after removing torrent from client and can only be physically cleaned out by searching for files below 4mb >_<

So I'd like to know a way to point uTorrent at some folder for it to store all of it's partfiles up there.

Partially resolved.

1. Giving all the files in torrent "Don't Download" priority.

2. Physically removing the part file.

This won't stop you from seeding but will stop uTorrent from making ~uTorrentPartFile. Naturally, this must be done each time after you've downloaded incomplete torrent, but...

Anyway, better ideas are welcome.
