The most important ones are the following:

resume.dat - Info about every torrent currently loaded, including destination path. You don't want to lose this one

settings.dat - All settings are stored here. It's is also used for portable if placed in same folder as utorrent.exe

rss.dat - All info about your RSS feeds, including history


Less imporrtant:

dht.dat - Some binary info about some nodes

dht_feed.dat - Mine is kind of empty
updates.dat - Info where and what updates it downloaded
