Yeah thats probably good advice.

Or you could make a copy of the incomplete data/torrent and open up the .torrent file in utorrent and see what happens.

My guess is that it will try and start all over again, but since I've never tried it before I'm not really sure..

Wow, uTorrent is freaking sweet.

Thanks guys, I'm sticking with this one. I wish I could change my vote in the poll!

BTW, I did manage to get one torrent to sort of "resume", but the rest dont work even if I rename the temporary files. So I'll let the other ones go in BitLord but anything that wasnt very far along or hadnt started yet is now running through uTorrent.

w00t.

BTW, bitlord with 3 torrents idling and not doing anything is using 37Mb of memory... uTorrent with 7 torrents and a few with activity is only using 6Mb. What a sweet program.

Yes you can import it to utorrent, here the guide how to do it. Better backup all your incompleted torrents and use the copies to test the import.

Ah! Thanks for that!

2 of the downloads I had in BitLord are already almost caught up in uTorrent so those are fine, and I'll just let that other one go for now, but I'll deffinitely use that in the future if I ever have to convert anything.

Thanks!

utorrent is the best

no more azureus that used ****ty java

azureus not only took allot of memory, but java also kept screwing up 3d acceleration.

Bitcomet is the best. utorrent might be fun but it can get you banned from certain trackers because it cheats the true bittorrent code as least that's what I've read.

Utorrent as it doesnt use any resources. The only problem is if the torrent you are trying to download requires registration at some site. Utorrent will not work for me. So I use Azuereus for those torrents.
