Specs: Windows Vista
Torrent insist on putting downloads in the Roaming folder on the C drive ! I reset the donwloading to D drive : advanced>set download location to.. etc. (and do force recheck) but it just goes back to the Roaming folder and creates a new folder to download .. ? Why and how to stop this...

Torrent 7.2 is a bicycle: http://www.bikeradar.com/us/mtb/gea...

If you mean BitTorrent 7.2, it's over 5 years old. Is there some reason why you haven't updated to version 7.9.9? See the following:

Thx for answering..
I had an older version even which was downloading and uploading MUCH faster than the newer versions... Unfortunately it crashed before I could retrieve what version it was. Some old versions didn't retrieve the already busy torrents which were working before the crash, this version 7.2 was the first to adopt the already working torrents but is very slow even though I am working on the same connection etc. I already let some get the new trackers but that does not solve the problem of slow torrenting...

Actually I think it was version 6.0 which was working for years and quick too! Only just recently it crashed and when reinstalled it again crashed. No report on why. Update centre is/was unavailable bytheway...

Try uTorrent instead: http://www.utorrent.com/

I will try. But will it also adopt the many torrents I was having active? (down and upload)

I don't use any torrent sites. That said, I believe the rule is you MUST share all downloads and allow uploading of those files.

If you are NOT sharing the D: drive then that would explain your problem.

nono,you misunderstand i DO share ! (of course) I just don't want other things on my C drive than system and programmes. All downloads and backups are on the D drive. Now I also see why I liked the old version too,. Not only was it fast it was better looking and without commercials. I see the point why there should be commercials(nothing is for free) but the sidebar on the left not being able to make smaller is annoying. Also I could do force recheck on the old version with utorrent that is only for pro version... or so it seems. It does give the option but does not recheck when clicked.. bummer .. so utorrent does not adopt the old torrents which I was running. , which other older versions of bittorrent could indeed do.. Also bummer.

Vista share settings are confusing IMO. So, verify that you are actually sharing the Torrents folder on the D: drive. Doesn't make sense that you do that.

wellll... it wás uploading and the "show statistics" proved I had a pretty good ratio for upload/download so I guess i was sharing like everybody else but I think this is a bit sidetracked here.. I originally asked something else. any help with that? Oh: and I explained for me C drive is for system and programmes only. the results of that are all on the D drive in case the system fails and has to be reinstalled... made very good sense when I had to do that sometimes over the years... (98, XP, Vista, Win7, win 8(.1) )

I use utorrent regularly. When I want to download something (video, music, software, etc), I find what I want, download it, immediately delete the torrent files after the download is complete, close untorrent, then run a cleaner. The only sharing I do is during the active download.

How many infections have you picked up?

Not many ;) At least through torrent... I use only reported clean ones.. I think..

I was doing a rollback even to see if there was a virus or not but then bittorrent still crashed

BUT !

I have gradually upgraded with increments and found that 7.0 is still up for my needs: no commercials, is perfectly adopting my old torrents and the state they were in... AND it does not give me a crash of Torrent any more... It only took quite a while to go through quite some checking of some files. But now that is done even Force Check is quick again.

I try to be equal and give as much as I get... mostly. But most of the times it is indeed as long as I download it and then do the same ...

But thanks for advising me..

This line can be closed
I DID follow your advice but found that,Strangely enough, utorrent is much slower than the now running 7.0...
