      Hi Folks,   As you may have noticed if you're a regular visitor to our forums, things look a little different as our forums have just undergone a significant upgrade and now have a fresh new look!  We're aware that there are one or two little "niggles" with the upgrade that still need ironing out, but we're on the case, and normal service will be resumed shortly!   In the meantime, if you've got a problem with a BitTorrent product, but are unable to post about it in the forums, you can also find support via the following links: BitTorrent Client Help Center BitTorrent Sync Help Center BitTorrent Bundle Help Center BitTorrent Bleep Help Center   Thank you for your patience as we work to improve your forum experience! UPDATE: 1st Feb - We're currently investigating issues with notifications - earlier issues that may have been preventing some users from logging in have now been resolved.

Seriously? What if the drive is broke, or someone is on vacation...or hey...maybe they don't think they should have to use such an external drive? What's up with this reply?

Not trying to flame, but I am having the same problem and the reply above is NOT HELPFUL.

OK guys. Here's a quick and dirty fix.

There's an old command line program called subst, it comes with windows.

Open a command prompt.

Where J: is your missing drive and "c:\mnt" is a blank folder of your choosing...

subst j: c:\mnt

Viola! Can download torrents again!

I was getting the same error message because I had removed the USB drive in which all BitTorrent files were be saved.

I simply plugged in the USB and all is fine.

Hi,

When i DL a torrent this morning, it automatically saved to my SD card that I was working w/photos in.

I did not realize this happened until I tried to find the file.

Now, the SD card is removed. I have tried plugging my external HD in every USB port, including the one it is usually plugged into.

Every time I try to DL a torrent now, it says Error: Former volume not mounted.

PLEASE HELP!!! I have always used my SD card intermittently at the same time as working with torrents via an external drive. Is this a virus or what?!

THANKS!
