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.

Thank you for the instructions.  I did see this elsewhere but I'm not sure I understand the Autoload folder on the desktop requirement.  Doesn't that put all of my files on the desktop?  That drive isn't big enough.  I have a much larger HD that I already have everything in.  Why can't I just point everything into that larger HD?

I re=read the instructions and realized I was only moving the torrents, not the whole files.  So I did it and it worked!  Now, another question.  I see everything is working or at least seems to be.  And I opened the original folder with all the files and the torrents are back in there.  Amazing.  Now, can I delete the AutoLoad folder?  Yes?
