Need advice with .torrent migration from uTorrent
« on: December 17, 2010, 08:28:34 pm »
Hi,

I am new to qBittorent.
I thought I would give this client a try since uTorrent from v.2.2 have added some extra warez which hijacks the browser and the uninstall doesn't clean out everything, and I used to use uTorrent so far, but now I want to migrate both finished and unfinished .torrent files.

Especially the unfinished .torrents I was not able to import them, I have tried to interpret the user manual but I couldn't figure out how to do it, are there anybody who knows how to do this?
I hope so because I encouraged people on uTorrent to look at qBittorrent and think this could be a great thread to help people to migrate as many have been very disappointed with uTorrents latest move. http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=90082&p=1

Thanks a lot in advance, I hope I will become a new satisfied qBittorrent user!  :)

Type
Code: [Select]
%appdata% in the Windows Explorer address bar. From appdata go to Local and copy torrent files from uTorrent folder to qBittorrent/BT_backup. qBittorrent then will check them and will start seeding for finished torrents; if there is something for download - qBittorrent will check it and will continue downloading.
