If I have a torrent that I have been seeding for a long time in uTorrent (that I no longer have the .torrent for) that I would like to remove and then use in the future, or transfer to another PC is it possible for me to retrieve its .torrent file, for the items contained, even if I do not have the original .torrent available?

If you don not have the torrent file and want to that you had used to download and want to ge the torrent file back you can get the file from ... C:\Users\MyUserName\AppData\Roaming\uTorrent in windows...

Else you can create your own torrent by selecting the downloaded torrent folder in the option create torrent under File Menu..

"Else you can create your own torrent" - Yes, but it will be a new torrent even if you add all files, and you cannot join the original torrent's swarm and reseed it in future. –  Karan Mar 10 '13 at 2:41
    
Yes Of-course @Karan, But the only way to get the same torrent back is to download from source or get it from app data folder as on top.. If both the above or not possible and still want to share then we need to create our own torrent which will be separate from the previous... –  Prem_Kumar_S Mar 11 '13 at 2:40
