All my torrents dissapeard. Help!

Post by SylverCheetah53 »

I am using qBittorrent 4.5.0 Portable.
After a reboot, all my torrents are gone. About 1000 torrents!
What can I do? How to put them back?
Pls help! :(

first guess would be your download directory changed, either the drive died, or the path changed. But, with the very little troubleshooting info you provided, anything will just be a guess.

What more info is needed? All torrents are gone from qBittorrent.
Also, I do not see any torrent file in D:\Programs\qBittorrentPortable\Data\settings\AppData_qBittorrent and D:\Programs\qBittorrentPortable\Data\settings\LocalAppData_qBittorrent
I really need them back! :(
Please!

Hi,

QBT works by profile so different users have different config/loaded torrent. I guess here you loose the profile linked to the portable version.
Example: you useed to lauch the portable version as administrator, now no more. The profile is not at the same location.

You will have to investigate a bit more your own system. The wiki contains the profile location by OS, check if you have multiple is a good start

Well, I found my torrent files!
They are here: C:\Users\Daniel\Downloads (about 600 of them)
And here: D:\Users\Daniel\Downloads (more than 1000)
How to import them back to QBittorrent?
It would be almost impossible to add them one by one...

I was meaning the profile (hidden folder I think), not the .torrent files.
But you can work with them too by adding both locations on the autoadd folder configuration. The current instance of QBT should import all .torrent fond in both folders.

I suggest to change your setting to not start torrent added before, then add them with the autoadd folder in the preferences.
I guess a force recheck will be necessary too prior resuming all items to assure path/checksum are right and avoid new downloads

Preferences>download>"automatically add torrents from"
Make a try with a couple of .torrent files and do not forget what I wrote earlier about the "paused" state
