{help} Seeding moved files

by redsky on 2013/08/23 06:22:18 PM    
Hi everyone.
I've recently started using tixati (portable atm) over bittorrent and find it great. The "move on completion" option is especially helpful to me, particularly being able to apply it to individual downloads.

Unfortunately before discovering this feature I dl'd two torrents and when they were completed I moved them into iTunes, and now I am having trouble reseeding them.

Here's what I did:
Selected the completed torrent
Clicked on "options>Move"
Selected the new location to which i had moved the files
Clicked on "force check"

Obviously I have missed a step, or neglected to do something, because tixati tells me

"unable to create file: the system cannot find the path specified".

Can anyone tell me what I should do? I apologise if this is a dumb question, I'm relatively new to torrenting. I tried to find this question in the forum because I'm sure I'm not the first person to ask, but I couldn't (how come the forum isn't searchable?)

I'm hoping to avoid this situation in future but the files I dl'd are kind of rare and I don't want to be a leech.:)

I'd remove the torrent from Tixati, open the torrent file again, point to right folder on loading screen and click stop, then force check.

Another idea is to move files back to original folder and use Tixati move function to place files in iTunes.

Thanks Pete, I tried your suggestion and it worked! I'll make sure to remember this for next time.
Will this also work with a renamed file/folder?

I never tried this before, but it should be possible. When loading new torrent you can right click on a file or folder and rename it. I usually don't rename downloaded files to avoid this problem. If you need to rename or move files and wish to keep seeding them, the best way is to do it with Tixati rename/move options.

I confirm,
Sometime the .torrent file is not there but still on the tixati interface. Just download the torrent again and it will work.
This message mean it an't find the torrent more than it can't create the path..

After loading a .torrent file Tixati doesn't need it. When you have torrent on the Transfers list, you may right-click it > Meta-Info > Save .torrent, in order to save a .torrent file from loaded task.

Right click on the torrent then go to file location and choose where the current location is at then merge.
