Ok, so I recently moved all my .torrent files and the associated downloads into a different folder. For some reason, uTorrent (Mac) can't find the downloaded file, and begins downloading it anew. How can I fix this?

Right-click (giggle) the torrent, select

  • Advanced
  • Set download location...
  • pick the location where the loaded files are now at
  • Click OK

After you've selected the new download location, force uTorrent to check it by clicking:

  • Advanced
  • Force re-check

+1. You might then need to run a "Force Re-Check" (the option above Advanced). – outsideblasts Feb 23 '11 at 3:19
Oh, yes, you definitely will have to run "Force re-check" after that. i'll add that. – Ian Boyd Feb 23 '11 at 3:56
Apparently, the "Advanced" options don't exist in the Mac version. Oh well, I'll accept this answer when they add it in. – waiwai933 Feb 23 '11 at 3:57
@waiwai933: That's why i "giggled" at the step where you have to Right-click. :) – Ian Boyd Jun 30 '11 at 3:28
