Re: How do I use BT_backup to restore missing torrents?

Okay, I get that.  As I said, it probably shows everything as I hadn't added many if any torrents.  So HOW do I use the data in the backup folder.  I need the simple steps, because I'm not that adept at this.  Thansk.

Re: How do I use BT_backup to restore missing torrents?

The only thing I saved was was the BT_backup folder, so it wouldn't be replaced by a newer, corrupted version.  It seems to have the correct number (pre-errors) of torrents.  How can that 'forget' the already downloaded torrents (actual files) in the target folder?  I don't think I added many torren...

Re: How do I use BT_backup to restore missing torrents?

Sorry, but I'm not sure what that first paragraph means.  I get stopping QB, but I don't know how to dump the settings and resume backup files 'over top their usual locations'?  And by losing everything, does that mean the already downloaded, completed files?  What's the point of the bt_backup folde...

Re: How do I use BT_backup to restore missing torrents?

How do I go about doing that?

If I update QB, will it look at my torrents file list again and reinstate them?

How do I use BT_backup to restore missing torrents?

How do I use the BT_backup file to restore my Qbittorrent? Last night, I was using QB as usual, when a torrent errored out.  I tried to pause it but nothing happened, so I exited QB, waited, and then restarted it and when I did, a bunch of torrents disappeared.  So I quit again and restarted it and ...

Re: Retrieving QB torrents file

Just wanted to pursue this a bit more.  I had to get another laptop and I found the torrents as you describe.  However, in addition to torrents, there are also 'fast resume' files.  Should I copy those over as well?  I found this thread that talks about moving the torrent files, but not the fast res...

Retrieving QB torrents file

My new laptop crashed in the midst of backing it up to my NAS.  It now will not boot into Windows, but there are indications that the hard drive is okay.  If I can either pull the HD or access it some other way (I'm working on that), is there a place to look for a file that would repopulate QBittorr...

Newbie question!

SOLVED Sorry, I clicked on a few things and managed to get them to redisplay.  What a scary few minutes though.  Sorry to bother the forum.  Somehow I hit a key or combination of keys and all my torrents don't show in the window.  They seem to be working, because I can see on the left several torre...
