    Here's an example of resuming a folder-type torrent. Let's suppose that you downloaded a torrent called SomeCoolBand, and selected to put it in the folder Downloads. So your directory structure resembles something like \Downloads\SomeCoolBand\file1, \Downloads\SomeCoolBand\file2, and so on. The important part of this example is that should you resume this transfer, when asked to select a destination folder you must select the \Downloads folder and NOT \Downloads\SomeCoolBand. It may seem a bit counter-intuitive, but just remember to always make the same selection as the original choice. When you first started the transfer there was no SomeCoolBand folder; you instead selected \Downloads and BT created the SomeCoolBand folder.

    if you dont know i suppose you just have the original bittorrent program,if you download a client it offers multiple torrent downloads, queuing/priority systems (on torrents and files), start/stop seeding options and instant access to numerous pieces of information about your torrents.i use azureus and im a fan of it,if you want to check it out:

    This is what I do set the file to the folder of your choice,to restart the file again I just open my history go find the file and carry on downing once you point it to the file and folder again, then it checks over it to see if its the right one and where it finished the last time.

    Just use the ABC client http://pingpong-abc.sourceforge.net/, you can either set up a default folder for downloads or just select a place for the download and it will remember where it is, plus it uses far less cpu/memory usage than any other bittorent client....
