Thread: Changing location of torrent files download

  1. #1
    All the files that I dl are in a folder in my C drive and I want to bring that folder to my D drive which is 2x the capacity of my C. At the moment I have to keep removing the dl files to D drive because my C drive get full. This make seeding a pain.

    How do I do this safely? I don't want to screw up my seeding.

    I am using Utorrent as client

    That is what I am doing now, What a pain in the a$$. 30gig of most music album. I am taking my tine to do it. Luck was on my side cos I only have 2 uncompleted torrent when I change over. That were the first 2 that I re download. I hope to be back fully seeding before long. Thanks for the help.

    Ps I now keep all the torrent files and not just trash them.

    You don't need to redownload the torrents from drive C, just move them to your D drive to where you told your utorrent to download to

    This is how I do it:

    1.Right click on the torrent, click stop
    2. Right click on the torrent again, ->Advanced->Set Download Location
    3. Right click on the torrent again, -> Force Recheck
    4. Right click and click start.

    You may have to restart utorrent again.
