Restoring Old Settings


Recommended Posts

I made the mistake of manually editing my settings.dat file in a text editor. I was pretty confident at the time that I didn't totally screw everything up, but once I started uTorrent, everything went to default and my settings.dat file shrunk down to a tiny version of what it once was. Several times I exited uTorrent, pasted the old settings (the ones that worked fine) back in there and saved, but upon starting, uTorrent keeps changing my settings back to default and outputting a few settings.dat.*.bad files every time.


Unfortunately, I have now also lost my copy of the old good settings (I forgot Notepad++ was running in admin, my clipboard history script doesn't work on admin processes), but I do have a few of those settings.dat.*.bad files which seem to contain the old data. Is there anything I can do to get uTorrent to restore the settings or do I have to start from scratch?
