3.3.3 All torrents gone after computer crash
« on: February 02, 2016, 04:52:43 PM »
Hello!

So I had some issues with my graphics card and had to power down my computer via holding the power button.
After restarting I have zero torrents in qbittorrent, so my questions is how do I recover them properly?

I'm on Win7 64 bit if that matters.

%APPDATA%\qBittorrent

Check the files in there.

I attached the contents of the folder.
Tried renaming the resume.ini.bak, after starting I just got the 3.3.0 upgrade can't go back blabla notification and nothing changed. Then I actually realized the resume.ini.bak is from 30.11.2015.
So I guess there's not much I can do?

1) Backup the folder contents.
2) Rename the file
3) Install an older qBittorrent http://www.oldfoss.com/qBittorrent.html
4) Try running the client
5) If it works, upgrade to latest client

It's a bit of a hassle, but it's like only 5 minutes. Lot less than re-adding tons of torrents. (depends on how many you had)

Alright that worked though a lot of newer torrents are missing, better than nothing I guess.
Thanks a lot!

Edit: Nevermind that, it actually got all the torrents, but they're a bit mixed up.
