Re: How to re seed torrents from external drive

When you normally begin downloading a torrent, does vuze ask you where to save your files or do you have it set to save to one specific directory all the time? You *should* be able to select ANY location to "save" files when you begin any torrent, and to reseed you'd just point the torrent to the external drive instead of your usual location...

I'm seeding stuff from 3 different external drives plus 2 internals all at once, so, no problem!
