Thanks, worked great.  8)

I migrated 4000+ torrents from uTorrent (Mac) to QBittorrent (Mac), I just had to use a windows VM to convert the profile folder.
Hello! You could ask :-)
Simple modification and compilation on macos, and you can migrate.
I did not know that there was a utorrent on mac too and did not count on this target audience. I will have to deal with the issue. Only with debugging it will be more difficult - I do not have a mac.
Many users are looking for options to move from uTorrent, as the next MacOS (coming next month) will drop support for 32-bit apps (like uTorrent) and knowing uTorrent they'll not release a 64-bit MacOS version any time soon.

I'm glad your tool exists, absolutely a lifesaver.

May I ask you to help me with debug?
Can you tell me where on Mac user profiles, and where are the files of the utorrent and qbittorrent?
And maybe in the evening there will be a working tool for mac

Can you try this release? It definitely must work if set paths forcely, and must be right defaults (macos case sensitive?) if nothing is specified

Hi! I would like to ask you to pin similar topics in the sections with Linux (deluge branch, I guess) and MacOS (I can arrange the corresponding topics) linked to this topic.
And in useful ones it would be very cool to pin a utility for changing trackers in batch mode, apparently this is the cool tool, people found her through a search and thanked her for the time saved.

Re: Windows tool for migration from Bittorrent/uTorrent/Deluge to qBittorrent
« Reply #85 on: September 14, 2019, 10:50:22 am »
Thank you! it worked great. but I have an issue.

I had a 40GB torrent that I had selected 4 GB to download in utorrent. after importing to qbittorrent:
the torrent appeared 100% in qbittorrent, and the selected files in content were 100%
but after I did a force recheck in qbittorrent, all the selected files inside became 99.x%

now the problem is, the actual files in my disk are complete, what happens if I re-download the 0.1% in qbittorrent? Is it going to corrupt the already completed files? 

EDIT I went ahead and re-downloaded the 0.1% and fortunately the files didn't corrupt and I can seed both in utorrent and qbittorrent.

is there any way to avoid having to redownload files?  I have 4000 torrents and many partial downloads, it would be a major pain to do this for all of them.

Hi! This is not a bug. The fact is that the bittorrent is designed so that the whole torrent is sliced on equal sized pieces, and in one piece there can be data from several files. Utorrent saves these pieces of not selected files to a file TorrentPartFile _....dat, and utorrent can seed these piece, and when you download these files you download whole piece. qBittorrent does similar operations, only files with pieces of a different format.

It’s okay that after rehashing files are uploaded 99%, because the pieces at the edges of the files are incomplete. But the files themselves are in fact whole (they do not change the hash sum).

If there are no more seeds, then technically the torrent will not be completed forever, if there are seeds, you can resume and everything will be OK. You can don’t start or rehash torrents, then they will appear to be fully completed (although this will not be so).

The formats of the uTorrent and qBittorrent are different, I tried to convert, without success.
