Stalled but seeding = seeding. Just the status is different.

You can click the stalled torrents and then Trackers on bottom and see what's going on with the tracker.

After successful migration from utorrent to qbittorrent with a tool I've found one torrent's "Size" and "Done" figures are confusing.

In utorrent this torrent completeness was 91% and overall size 61GB.
In qbittorrent main window completeness is 100% and overall size is 7.03GB. On the other hand, content window shows real figures.

Rehash did not help.

Cannot submit a printscreen picture to this post.

Can anyone help?

Thank you, romanzo.
Your advice helped nicely. The status of a torrent changed from Seeding to Stalled and that means I have a chance to get the rest 9% of a torrent.

Do the actual .torrent files get transfered too? I can't seem to find them. Unless they get copied to "C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\qBittorrent\BT_backup\"? If true, all of the .torrent files in that folder have a garbled file name instead of the actual name that they have in the uTorrent folder for .torrents. Example of the garbled name: "0bb79546b4890be8c671654e303f2afbe88368c5.torrent"

Yes, this is how libtorrent library works, this name is a hash from the contents of a torrent file. Otherwise it's just a copied torrent with a new name

I see! I didn't know qBittorrent saves .torrents differently than uTorrent. Thanks for clearing that up.

rumanzo wrote: Disappointed in the existing application on the ruby, which could not handle all my torrents, I wrote my own application on golang.
I tested it on my own torrent database (3k+) and test torrents on Bittorrent/uTorrent clients (version 3+).
Features:
  • Processing all torrents
  • Processing torrents with subdirectories and without subdirectories
  • Processing torrents with renamed files
  • Processing torrents with non-standard encodings (for example, cp1251)
  • Processing of torrents in the not ready state *
  • Save date, metrics, status. **
  • Import of tags and labels
  • Multithreading
* This torrents will not be done (0%) and will need force rehash
** The calculation of the completed parts is based only on the priority of the files in torrent

Don't forget before use make backup bittorrent\utorrent, qbittorrent folder. and config %APPDATA%/Roaming/qBittorrent/qBittorrent.ini. Close all this program before.

Usage:
1.) Help (from cmd or powerwhell)

Code: Select all

C:\Users\user\Downloads> .\bt2qbt_v0.1_amd64.exe -h
Usage of C:\Users\user\Downloads\bt2qbt_v0.1_amd64.exe:
-c, --qconfig (= "C:\\Users\\user\\AppData\\Roaming\\qBittorrent\\qBittorrent.ini")
    qBittorrent config files (for write tags)
-d, --destination (= "C:\\Users\\user\\AppData\\Local\\qBittorrent\\BT_backup\")
    Destination directory BT_backup (as default)
-s, --source (= "C:\\Users\\user\\AppData\\Roaming\\uTorrent\")
    Source directory that contains resume.dat and torrents files
--without-labels  (= false)
    Do not export/import labels
--without-tags  (= false)
    Do not export/import tags
2.) If you just run application, it will processing torrents from %APPDATA%\uTorrent\ to %LOCALAPPDATA%\qBittorrent\BT_BACKUP\
Example:

Code: Select all

It will be performed processing from directory C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\uTorrent\ to directory C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\qBittorrent\BT_backup\
Check that the qBittorrent is turned off and the directory C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\qBittorrent\BT_backup\ and config C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\qBittorrent\qBittorrent.ini is backed up.

Press Enter to start

Started
1/2 Sucessfully imported 1.torrent
2/2 Sucessfully imported 2.torrent

Press Enter to exit
3.) Run application from cmd or powershell with keys, if you want change source dir or destination dir, or export/import behavior
Example:

Code: Select all

C:\Users\user\Downloads> .\bt2qbt_v0.1_amd64.exe -s C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\BitTorrent\
It will be performed processing from directory C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\BitTorrent\ to directory C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\qBittorrent\BT_backup\
Check that the qBittorrent is turned off and the directory C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\qBittorrent\BT_backup\ is backed up.

If there are any errors or if it help you - write there

I ran this, made the (apparent) adjustments, but it failed -

I DO want to import the LABELS.

Also, I am clearly substituting {username} for the User folder.


Thanks for any assistance!!! :)


PS:  I don't suppose there's any chance to evolve this into a GUI where you could more easily browse for the applicable folders and select checkboxes for whether you want labels &/or tags.
EDIT:  Could it have something to do with the fact that I'm not using the Apps folder for uT, but the installation folder?  (I will create that folder and copy the files there as a test!)
Old thread im sorry, but this seems like something i need, unless there is a better known application(?)
But i cannot find the actual .exe? :)
