Resume Download with KTorrent

Posted by clissold345 on December 12, 2006

This short note applies to KTorrent 2.0.3. I had to reinstall Ubuntu and KTorrent and I wanted to resume an incomplete download. By default KTorrent creates a folder containing the files in a torrent, so in order to resume the download, when you’ve searched for and found the torrent file, you save the torrent to the folder containing the folder containing the incomplete download.

For example, if the incomplete download is in /videos/myfilm, save the torrent to /videos, then KTorrent will resume the download (which is what I wanted). If you save the torrent to /videos/myfilm, KTorrent will create a new folder /videos/myfilm/myfilm and will download from scratch (which is not what I wanted).
