Windows / Re: Is there an easy way to move qbittorrent to another computer?
« on: September 12, 2017, 11:08:54 am »
Switeck thanks. Could you be a bit more specific please? Exactly what folders would I need to move and where are they located (qbit is currently installed on my C: drive and downloads are saved to a folder on my C: drive).

Windows / Is there an easy way to move qbittorrent to another computer?
« on: September 11, 2017, 10:22:45 pm »
I have over 200 downloads in progress but would like to move everything onto my new computer before they all finish which could take some days. Is there an easy way to do this?

With utorrent I  could just install it on the new computer and transfer one folder over from the old utorrent replacing that folder on the new installation and that's it done, really simple.

Windows / "set location" only works for completed torrents.
« on: February 14, 2017, 09:56:27 pm »
I've read around a bit, on github for example, and it seems that "set location" should move a torrent's save location while it is only partly finished downloading. I believe I'm doing it right; I pause the torrent, select "set location" and point it to the new folder I want it to save to, and then resume the torrent. But it only moves the torrent files when the torrent has completed. Am I doing something wrong?

4
When I add a new torrent and change the "save at" path it does not take and the torrent is saved at the default path instead.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Windows / Re: How do I move all my torrents to another drive?
« on: February 14, 2017, 08:33:38 pm »
Have you moved/copied the files to the destination drive yet using Windows Explorer?

Not in this test I haven't because I'm trying to test whether I can make a brand new torrent save to a different folder than the default one, and it appears I can't. And if I can't do that for a new torrent then I doubt I'll get anywhere when I eventually come to moving an already half downloaded torrent. So my immediate problem is how to get a new torrent to save to a folder that is not the default one because it's not allowing me to do that. Can you think what I might be doing wrong? Surely if I change the save path for a brand new torrent then no matter what the other settings are it should save to the new save path. No?

Thanks for your help btw!

Actually, maybe I should put this problem up as another thread as it may not relate to my original problem in this thread (but then again it just might).

Did you have the torrent set to NOT automatically start the torrent AND skip hash check?

What I'm doing is adding a brand new torrent because I want to test if I can make it save to a folder that isn't the default one. If I can't do that then I'm going nowhere fast. So when adding the torrent I change the destination folder and I definitely had "skip hash check" ticked and "torrent management mode" on manual, and there's a "start torrent" tick box which I unticked (normally I'd have that ticked). But when I add it, it immediately shows the torrent as 100% downloaded and if I try to open the destination folder it doesn't open. I have no idea what's going on here.

No, what I meant was even if I use File/Exit to exit qbittorrent then sometimes when I start qbittorrent again I have the many files being force rechecked problem, even when I know qbittorrent was fully shut down. It seems that whatever qbittorrent does when it shuts down is sometimes getting corrupted somehow.

8
I always exit qB with right-click - Exit. This is the way to avoid these forced shutdowns and rechecks.

I use File/Exit and still get the problem.

Ok Switek thanks for that.

I tried testing your idea on a brand new torrent download but the immediate problem I'm having is that when I change the download folder to something other than my default folder when adding the torrent it's not taking and the torrent is downloaded to my default folder. It seems I go from one problem to another. Any idea if that's a known qbittorrent bug or am I doing something wrong? If I can get that working I can progress with your method.

Switek, will this work for torrents that are mid way through downloading? How does the torrent data that's already been downloaded get transferred to the new location? Would I have to add all the .torrent files back individually or can that be done all in one go?

11
Can't believe this isn't already a feature! Useful if, like me, you start to run out of space on the current drive. Or maybe you realise your drive is failing and you need to move torrents off it quickly and simply.

Ideally it should be as simple as selecting (for example) "Move torrents to different drive" and then a window where you select the drive and folder etc. and it goes off and automatically moves everything across.

stihia thank you for the reply. I'm afraid it's not making much sense to me though.  Could you explain exactly what I have to do to move a single torrent that's already downloading (or is that not possible)? I don't know what "manual mode" is and I have no idea how to set tags (I think you mean I will have to use manual mode for new added torrents but finish off the current torrents in the folders they are currently downloading to?). If you could walk me through the process for one torrent that would be great.

I did try to "set location" and did pause the torrent first but it just carried on downloading to the original file/folder not the new path! If the developers of qbittorrent read this, please provide a simple way to move all torrents to another drive.

Windows / How do I move all my torrents to another drive?
« on: February 11, 2017, 06:17:52 pm »
I need to move all my torrents onto another drive because at the moment they're on C and I'm running out of space. I have looked on the internet for a solution but couldn't find anything really. Some say use "set location" but it doesn't seem to work for me and anyway it means I would have to do this for each one individually which would be a mammoth task.

Is there a simple way to move all torrents to another drive?

14
I don't know the answer h931 but I have the same problem. Sometimes it causes many of my torrents to be in the forced recheck state when I start qbittorrent the next time and I have to wait ages for the many large torrents to be rechecked before they restart...very annoying. I'm in the habit now of making sure qbittorrent has fully shut down using task manager before I shut down the computer. I'm on win7 64bit as well.

Windows / Seeds column blank and all downloads have stopped.
« on: October 25, 2016, 10:49:28 am »
System:
Win7 SP1 fully updated.
was on QBT 3.3.6 but updated to 3.3.7 - no change
I use Cyberghost VPN but QBT has been working fine with it until now (in case that's relevant)
Installed old version of utorrent recently but I'm pretty sure QBT has been working since and I don't run both at the same time
Network Interface is set to "any interface"

The problem:
The Seeds column is totally blank but there are entries in the Peers column
All downloads have stopped
The availability bar (in the "general" tab) is all white for all the torrents in my list
I haven't as far as I can recall made any changes to any of the settings in QBT to cause this to happen
If I leave it a long time some of the downloads eventually start but not all of them
EDIT: I just noticed when I hover over the icon next to "DHT nodes" it says "No direct connections. This may indicate network configuration problems"...OOPS! spoke too soon, it's been running for about 20 minutes now and has turned green and says "online"
