Windows / Re: Frustrated - slow download
« Last post by cavist on Today at 09:51:15 AM »
Just stick with uT then... no need to be frustrated...

Yeah, your post was really helpful. Definitely.


@Switeck: I never set my upload rate more than 40% of my real upload bandwidth. I tried different setting, like even lower rate on uT than Qb and the other way around, qB still is Stalling or downloading with very poor speeds. This same torrent file downloads much, much better on uT. I want to use qB but practically I can not having Stalled or poor speeds all the time.

Suggestions / Re: Export/Import RSS Feeds
« Last post by ajhenkel86 on Today at 03:50:08 AM »
Yes you can do this. This method will copy your RSS Feeds, your RSS Rules and Torrent Settings. This method works with both portable and installed versions:

1. Open the program location in one window:                                      "C:\Program Files(x86)\qBittorrent"      For Portable: ""C:\qBittorrentPortable"
2. Open another window and type: "%appdata%\qBittorrent"         or    (C:\Users\YOURACCOUNTNAME\AppData\Roaming\qBittorrent)
3. Open a 3rd window and type: "%localappdata%\qBittorrent"      or    (C:\Users\YOURUSERACCOUNT\AppData\Local\qBittorrent)
4. Copy all the data in those locations and paste them somewhere safe, preferably on a usb stick.

5. You can now uninstall/reinstall qBittorrent, then copy the data above, back into the same location where they came from
6. DONE!!!!!!!!!!  You may need to Close the program and then reopen it before it detects the changes!!!

All your settings, RSS Feeds, RSS Feed Rules etc will now be back as they were before
If you want to go another step further, you can copy the location of where your completed and in-completed downloads are as well if you don't want to loose your current downloads

It took me a few days of constant brain strain to figure this out (I am not one of those people who knows how to figure this sort of stuff out, straight off the bat). It is unbelievable that such a good program like qBitorrent doesn't have a feature like this that makes this process simple. For years I can see people asking how to do this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a *lower* upload rate on uT than on qB, tried increasing default number of connection and nothing. qB is very slow or does not download torrents at all :-\
If your upload speed is set too close in uT or qBT to the max upload speed possible for your connection, then they will download slowly because of bandwidth overloads known as bufferbloat or congestion. Under those circumstances, allowing more connections will just make things worse instead of better.

The solution is to set the upload speed to 50-90% of max upload speed possible for the connection if your goal is to max out download speed. Make sure uTP and "local" peers obey that limit also -- they may not by default in qBT!

Windows / Re: Install new version 3.3.11 and lost all data on top
« Last post by tekko on March 29, 2017, 09:43:47 PM »
Those 2 folders should be enough, unless I am wrong...

And take note that:
As state here: https://www.qbittorrent.org/news.php
"qBittorrent v3.3.11 was released. There are a few WebUI security fixes.
This will be the last release in the v3.3.x series. Next release will have a new icon theme(at least) and will drop Qt4 support. Also Qt 5.7.1 seems to be the last release supporting Windows XP. It is unknown how long I am going to still support it."

Read the changelog next time before updating, to see if  XP support is dropped.
I had to move on to win7 a few months ago...

Thanks , As I saw somewhere else, I just re-install that new version and.......VOILA. Everything is back to normal.
I'm still on Win XP Pro sp3. The 2 places I found are:

C:\Documents and Settings\Dan\Application Data\qBittorrent

C:\Documents and Settings\Dan\Local Settings\Application Data\qBittorrent

Is there somewhere else I can look for more ??????????

The builds website could hold quite some older versions if needed...
(Though it's rarely needed to downgrade.)

This is similar to the post I just made over here https://qbforums.shiki.hu/index.php/topic,4973.0.html so if the mods want to combine the two that is fine with me. Sorry for not looking around more before posting

Suggestions / Add the ability to type the path where you want the file to be stored
« Last post by DOS76 on March 29, 2017, 01:40:55 PM »
Currently in QBittorrent when you start a torrent it opens a form with my default path listed it offers a dropdown menu for paths its used recently and it has the browse functionality to add any path you want but for me converting from BitTorrent this is a actually a deal breaker I need to be able to start typing the path and have Windows list directory possibilities like I'm used to currently I start QBittorrent once a month to download my MAME set and would actually like to switch but that small functionality factor is stopping me from converting to it full time. All in all it looks like a solid torrent client and it definitely handles large torrents files better than Bittorrent or UTorrent.

Generic / Re: How to reshare old files?
« Last post by tekko on March 29, 2017, 01:04:48 PM »
emule is quite different... as long as the file is the same, the sharing hash would be the same and ppl will find it.

torrents... unless u saved the original .torrent or find one containing the exact same file, ppl will not find it. If u want ppl to find it with your own created .torrent, u'll have to post the magnet link / .torrent somewhere. Just like where you found them.
