    Transfer half downloaded torrents to utorrent

    I use ubuntu 10.10 in my AMD 64x2 4000+ processor.
    I had downloaded half portion of a certain torrent file using ktorrent(in gnome).
    Now i have installed utorrent using wine.
    Is there any way i can transfer the half downloaded torrent to utorrent and continue downloading the rest part in utorrent.
    Thanx

    Hi!

    Have a look at the partially downloaded files from ktorrent.

    Often, torrent clients append an extension to incomplete files

    like ".part" or ".bc" to gain exlusive access to those files.

    For example, if you have the ".part" extension, utorrent will not resume

    the download of that file.



    So if you have a file called "myfile.part" you would

    delete ".part" from that file.

    Next you would load the .torrent file in utorrent

    and set the download directory to the location

    of your files. Then it should resume.

    Most torrent programs should have a built-in "check" system for checking that the file matches the torrent. If the two don't match, it resumes downloading the incomplete file.

    As DanneStrat said, move the files to your new location, but ensure that the filename is it's normal (final) filename without any additional extensions
