macOS tool for migration from Bittorrent/uTorrent to qBittorrent

Original topic,5889.0.html

  • 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
*** 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. After rehash files on fs will be valid, but qBittorrent will show that come files are 99% downloaded.

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

At first you must set file executable

$ chmod +x bt2qbt_v1.1_amd64_macos

-c, --qconfig (= "~/.config/qBittorrent/qbittorrent.ini")
    qBittorrent config files (for write tags)
-d, --destination (= "~/Library/Application Support/QBittorrent")
    Destination directory BT_backup (as default)
-s, --source (= "~/Library/Application Support/uTorrent")
    Source directory that contains resume.dat and torrents files
--without-labels  (= false)
    Do not export/import labels
--without-tags  (= false)
