how to finish downloading half downloaded files.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I had previously been downloading a large video file onto my portable hard drive (same way i download all my torrents)

id been stopping and starting it like normal.

when i connected my hard drive to continue downloading, utorrent said the files were missing (they hadnt been touched or moved)

and because im so impatient i clicked reset bans (not knowing what it meant)

and it restarted the download

so now i have a bunch of half downloaded files which i would like to finish downloading.

how can i finish downloading the files i already have or do i need to totally start again?

Thanks!!

I assume you mean the chapter on migrating files?

i just read that but i started downloading on utorrent so i doubt i will have to change the name.

but it wont let me add torrent to continue downloading them (the files they are sitting in are just empty)

am i doing it wrong or is it just not working?

That is NOT what I said, because what you think is the correct path ISN'T. You need to point uTorrent to the PARENT directory

Okay I'll draw you a picture.

X:    \ --- Root directory    \download\ ---- as set in preferences -> directories <<<< THIS is where you point to ...    \download\torrentNamedDirectory\ downloaded files are here >>>> ....  NOT HERE

The parent folder is the one BEFORE the folder where the files are.

ok so i have

my computer >

the hard drive >

Movies >

the name of the tv series >

the number of season >

then the episodes in each season file

ive not moved or touched the file path either on the hard drive nor on utorrent

so which file should i right click

"advanced"

"set download location"

if that what im supposed to do

uTorrent no longer knows where the files are located due to this which is why you are being advised to (re)set download location.

Would it not be MUCH simpler just to make sure that it is assigned the SAME drive letter?

all my other downloads which are going at the same time are fine.

i stop and start them all the time and this has never come up before.

i have set the download location to the right file... and re - checked it

its still sitting at 0.0%
