Normally µTorrent will download many files simultaneously. Is there a way to tell it to use all bandwidth/connections to download one file and then move to the other?

Setting file priorities does help, but that's a lot of manual work, and two files with the same priority will be downloaded in parallel anyway.

Is this multiple files in one torrent, or multiple torrents? –  MBraedley Dec 11 '10 at 20:43

Options → Preferences → Queuing → Max. number of active downloads = 1

I don't think this does what was asked. This setting is for queuing torrents, not files inside torrents. –  David Foerster Mar 24 at 2:56
