What is the Best way to re-add my torrent library on a new PC?

Postby Elfere » Tue Aug 07, 2018 8:03 pm

I had all my files organized across 3 different HDDs.
I've moved all the files/folders to a new PC (same network)
reinstalled Deluge. I've tried running the tor files, and then 'move location' to the new location. with no success.

I'm cool with re-adding all 160 files individually - but i can't even seem to do that.

Is there any batch way to re-add all the .tor files and - by some magic - have them all re-find their locations automatically?

assuming that's impossible (since everything is in new places, i get why it might be). how do i mannually re-add .tor files and then point them to the completed locations again?


I swear i've re-added files before with success (after i moved/deleted the originals) but for some reason on this new PC install i'm hitting a road block.

Many thanks for any and all advice - even if its just to say 'sorry bro, you're screwed'

If you are going to re add them manually, make sure your settings are set to add new torrents in a paused state and then do a force recheck on them after they are added with the right download directory.

If you have your extra had drives assigned as the same letters as they were on the old PC, then you should be able to have deluge shut down on both PCs and then get a copy of the old %APPDATA folder and copy that to the new PC. When you start deluge on the new PC it should automatically be configured exactly how it was on the old PC.
