New User File Path Issue

Postby UKQuinny » Mon Feb 20, 2017 5:38 am

So i made the switch from utorrent to Deluge today, i tried to swop clients with 433 active torrents (433 stupid, i know!). For some reason 32 torrents loaded correctly, with the save path as i nominated, D:\Downloads. But the rest of the torrents are saving to the default path C:\Users\*******\Downloads. For some reason it wont let me change this default file path to the location i want.
In Preferences i have changed the download folder to D:\Downloads
Ive tried right click move storage, doesn't change anything.

Many thanks for your time in advance

It might be due to not replacing existing files, pause those torrents and remove any partial files in C:\Users\*******\Downloads then try move storage. Failing that iirc 1.3.12 has the old settings that would overwrite.

"remove any partial files in C:\Users\*******\Downloads then try move storage"
Tried that, didn't work.
What do you mean by
" Failing that iirc 1.3.12 has the old settings that would overwrite."

Thanks for your time
