Transferring a torrent-in-progress to a different computer

Post by ArseneLupin » Wed Aug 19, 2020 11:53 pm

Hello, everyone. Got a question about something I hope is possible.

Say I am downloading a very large torrent, and I am half way through it. But then I need to continue downloading said torrent using a different computer. I can remove the hard-drive containing the torrent in question from the original computer, and install it in the new computer, but how can I have the installation of qBittorrent in the new computer recognize the already in progress torrent and resume the download without starting from the beginning?

Thanks in advance for any help.

- You'd have to make sure the drive letter is the same.
- You'd have to copy over %APPDATA%\qBittorrent and %LOCALAPPDATA%\qBittorrent folders to the same place on the other PC.

That's about it. Make sure qBittorrent IS CLOSED when attempting this!
