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
  • Path replace mechanism
* This torrents will not be done (0%) and will need force rehash
* If you migrate from windows to linux and use replace function attention that multiple flags -r processing one by one
* If you migrate from windows to linux and yours torrent files saves to some place you must use flag --search with actual paths in yours system
* If you migrate from windows to linux you may need to define path separathor with --sep flag
** The calculation of the completed parts is based only on the priority of the files in torrent
*** Partially downloaded torrents will be visible as 100% completed, but in fact you will need to do a rehash. Without rehash torrents not will be valid. This is due to the fact that conversion of .dat files in which parts of objects are stored is not implemented.

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

Usage:
If you MacOs user or Linux user don't forget to make the file executable:

Code: Select all

$ chmod +x bt2qbt_v1.3_amd64_macos
1.) Help (from cmd or powerwhell)

Code: Select all

 C:\Users\user\Downloads\bt2qbt_v1.3_amd64.exe [OPTIONS]

                        C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\uTorrent\)
  -d, --destination=    Destination directory BT_backup (as default) (default:
                        C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\qBittorrent\BT_backup\)
  -c, --config=         Source directory that contains resume.dat and torrents
                        files (default:
                        C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\qBittorrent\qBittorren-

                        t.ini)
      --without-labels  Do not export/import labels
      --without-tags    Do not export/import tags
  -t, --search=         Additional search path for torrents files
                        Example: --search='/mnt/olddisk/savedtorrents'
                        --search='/mnt/olddisk/workstorrents'
  -r, --replace=        Replace paths.
                        Delimiter for from/to is comma - ,
                        Example: -r "D:\films,/home/user/films" -r
                        "D:\music,/home/user/music"

      --sep=            Default path separator that will use in all paths. You
                        may need use this flag if you migrating from windows to
                        linux in some cases (default: \)

Example:

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.

Why you use replace flag? Probably you don't need them

I build new version, if I clearly understand your problem it must help, try it. And don't use replace flag if you don't change any torrents paths.

Perfect, not it is working. Thank you for very quick support.
May be i have one enhacement. Whe i use -d flag with path ends with back slash (like that: "d:\qbittorren\profile\qBittorrent\data\BT_backup\") your convertor shows error "Can't create qBittorrent fastresume file d:\qbittorren\profile\qBittorrent\data\BT_backup"
When i use without backslash (like that: "d:\qbittorren\profile\qBittorrent\data\BT_backup") it is works.
Can you add in future some fix to thet? Sometimes it is confusing because where user back slas at the end of path and where do not.
Thank you
