Clean delete / reinstall ?? hidden files somewhere?
« on: November 12, 2013, 05:18:27 am »
Hi all ..

I just have a quick question and perhaps someone can answer it.

I have been trying to do a clean (a fully clean) delete of qBittorrent so I can do a "Clean slate" reinstall ..

the odd problem I am having is even when removing the support files in the Preferences and Application support folder qBittorrent still seems to retain the old configuration settings .. apparently there is a hidden config file somewhere perhaps someone knows the list of files that need to be removed (including any hidden directories)

I am using a Mac with OSX 10.9

Thanks for your help.

Find Any File shows these items on OS Mavericks.  Click on the attachment to see it bigger.

I'm having the same problem. Can you tell me if you found the config file and were able to delete it?

user>>Library>>Application Support>> 2  folders

user>>Library>>Preferences --- 3 different preference files.

user>>Library>>Caches>> qBittorent folder

user>>Library>>Saved Application State>> qBittorent folder

And Disk>>Private>>var>>db>>bootcaches >> crazy numbered folder>> app.org.qbittorrent.playlist

I deleted all the files 9Pigs listed and I also ran Onyx and did the entire suite of system maintenance cleanup .. including clearing of boot caches and it eventually seemed to clear out itself and was back to a "fresh install state" after i ran Onyx and did a reboot... just deleting the files and emptying the trash didn't seem to be enough .. seems running Onyx and doing system maintenance / cache clearing finally did the trick.
