I'm trying to downloading a torrent file using uTorrent but it only gets to 99.3%... no one else is seeding anymore.

If I open the torrent folder I can see all the individual files I'm looking for. I know uTorrent creates all the file names and preallocates their space. I am able to open some of the files without obvious issues...

Is it possible to tell which files were not completed? Is there a method in uTorrent?

µTorrent shows the percentage for each file in the "Files" tab – if it says 100%, then the file is complete.

Files tab

You can also enable Preferences → General → Append .!ut to incomplete files if you want incomplete files to be named differently.

I did the append to file and that worked. I dont know what "files" tab you are talking about. Could you explain where this is? – Keltari Aug 22 '11 at 0:48
