Question for ya'll. I have picked up a few prodvds off the torrent lists and because of smaller HD partition I've had to move them to another partition on my harddrive. I still want to be able to upload them and continue to share. Is there a way I can reroute where the torrent looks? Or do I have to copy them back into the original folder in order to upload? Also, if I have removed the actual torrent, is there a way I can recreate one? Basically my question is that I have multiple video / audio files on a second partition and I really want to keep uploading them each day while I'm at work to keep my worth here on TD :) Any help is very mcuh appreciated!

you can re-download the torrent from the thread where you originally got it and direct it to the new dir where the files reside, then you will be able to continue seeding.

with most clients (eg utorrent), if you still have the torrent in the list you can right-click and change the directory it is pointed at to continue seeding from the new dir.

Hmm. I kept attempting to change the directory and for some reason it would not take the re-direct. I will give it another go this evening and see if I can get them to start uploading again. Also...should anything I'd like to upload (for example, other Radiohead shn and flac audio) should I share the source to make sure its applicable first before seeding? I've never done that before but again, would really like to learn how to seed and I learn better through discussion than trying to follow directions.
