How do I change the drive letter for multiple torrent files?

Bit of a dumb question, but how do I change the drive letter for multiple torrent files? Moving all my media file directories to a new drive, but I can't figure out how to tell Deluge to look for them on the new drive.

Have you considered changing the drive letters instead? I think you need a hex editor and a find & replace search on one of the config files to do it your way.

Not a bad idea, but that would screw up a lot of other path references for programs I have referencing files on that drive. All the torrent files are under a single directory tree, but that's not all there is on the drive. I'll look into the hex editor idea. Do you know which config file contains the path references for Deluge? Thanks!

Looks like it might be easier than I first thought.

I was looking here:
viewtopic.php?f=12&t=54146&p=224772&hilit=path#p224772

And, it looks like you just need to open torrents.state and torrents.fastresume in the config directory and it is a standard text file that can be edited by any text editor.

As always, be sure to fully close deluge and backup your config directory before messing with it.
