Is it possible to move a 100% torrent with files elsewhere and seed it again somehow?

Asked by r4wMUnt34q on 2008-02-26

Hello guys,

I download torrents which will have bigger capacity in 100% than my HDD. I would like to know if it is possible to move a (100% and/or less %) torrent somewhere else (e.g. on a usb), wait till others are completed (and moved) or more space is available and than move it back and continue downloading/seeding again.

Thanks a lot...

So I stopped my 100% torrent and moved it away. My question now is, if I accidentally delete a torrent (only the torrent, not the data) from KTorrent, if I am able to continue that torrent somehow. Am I ?

Yes, just download the torrent file again, then open it in KTorrent. You will be asked where to save the downloaded file -- choose the same place where you have it saved (from previous downloading) and KTorrent will recognize taht you have allredy this file...

Is there an AddOn for kTorrent that searches .torrent files for data?
Or a Hash viewer?
