Lost all my 200 queued torrents

Post by expansion1 » Wed Jun 24, 2020 3:55 pm

I had 200+ torrents, some finished, some ongoing in my qbittorrent portable installation. Partition ran out of space or something and now when I start it I have no torrents.

I have a backup of this folder LocalAppData_qBittorrent containing:
BT_backup - torrent/fastresume files
cache
GeoDB
logs
rss

But it seems that it is not enough. I've pasted them manually both in roaming and Data\settings(portable install folder) but it does not want to see them.
What file am I missing that keeps track of all those torrent/fastresume files that this application does not want to see the torrents?

IMHO, this app should be made more resilient to PC crashes, disks running out of space, etc.
Also the ability to mass update torrent locations without python scripts on those fastresume files is very very needed. These days people move tens of torrents from one place to another.

Does anyone know what file am I missing? Which file is "glue"-ing .fastresume and .torrrent files?
