  1. How do I migrate torrents from a different client to µTorrent?

    First, identify the folder where your previous torrent client stored your torrents, then:

     

    1. Create a folder called AUTOLOAD on your desktop.
    2. Create a folder called TORRENTS where you want to store your completed torrents to be relocated (for example c:\My Documents\My Torrents\).
    3. In your torrent client, click Options, then click Preferences, then click Directories.  Check the ‘Put new downloads in’ checkbox and point the path to the folder you were using to save your completed torrents with your previous torrent client.
    4. Check the ‘Move .torrents for finished jobs to: checkbox and point the path to the TORRENTS folder.
    5. Check the ‘Automatically load .torrents from’ checkbox and point the path to the AUTOLOAD folder on your desktop.
    6. Find the .torrent for the files you wish to load, which match the files in your completed folder, and move them (not copy) to the AUTOLOAD folder on your desktop.

     

    You torrent client will automatically load the .torrents from the AUTOLOAD folder into the torrent list. It will find that the matching files are already in the download folder and will check them to make sure they are complete.


  2. The availability number is based on the number of times each piece is seen among the people you're connected to. If there's not at least one copy of EVERY piece of the torrent, the availability will be less than 1. If there's at least one copy of every piece, the number increases to the number of complete sets seen.

    The torrents availability is 0.956

    That's why you haven't been able to finish.

    I've added tons of trackers to it

    This never helps and in fact increases the load on those trackers needlessly.


  4. if the %appdata% location doesn't match up exactly then that doesn't actually work either.

    This is the procedure for migrating large groups instead of using a resume.dat file copy like yours.
