Advice on backing up qBittorrent download queue
« on: September 10, 2019, 04:31:56 pm »
How do I back up my ongoing and completed downloads in qBittorrent with as few binary files included as possible? I.e. what qBittorrent folder should I back up to just be able to restore my download queue and point it to the right download directory? My computer might be infected with malware, so I'm going to reinstall Windows 10 and don't want to bring over any more binary files to the new installation than absolutely necessary.

Better read these links then:
https://github.com/qbittorrent/qBittorrent/wiki/Frequently-Asked-Questions#Where_does_qBittorrent_save_its_settings
https://qbforums.shiki.hu/index.php/topic,2826.msg13292/topicseen.html#msg13292      Backup qBT settings!

Note: That will only back up the .torrent files and qBT's torrent listing, whether they be seeds, downloading, or queued.
You'll have to back up the contents of the torrents separately.
