Re: Torrent added to utorrent - redownloading?

I would use the checksum file to actually verify that your process of zipping and unzipping the files didn't damage them or corrupt them or alter them. Perhaps making "new" files with the zip / unzip process changed the dates of the files and they weren't exactly the same as the originals anymore? Dates, headers, I dunno, but something obviously was changed when you compressed and uncompressed them...

At least you didn't have to re-download the entire fileset a second time - it gave you credit for having a big portion of them already.

Why the zip / unzip extra step anyway? Couldn't you just copy the whole folder the files are in to transfer them to the second computer?
