another azureus question..but not so dumb, I hope.

With Azureus, can one set it up so that one can seed off of an external HD? I keep wanting to continue to seed things but get burnt by limited HD space on my Mac. Could I perhaps in preferences set up Azureus to download not to documents but to an external hard drive and then will I be able to seed as I Dl and after that? Is this just a dream of mine? Does anyone else do this? Is it less effective (poorer speeds etc). I don't wanna mess up so I thought I'd asked the pros. I am hoping someone else does this and can tell me it is a safe choice.
thanks.

Re: another azureus question..but not so dumb, I hope.

Here's a recent thread about external drives.
http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/...ad.php?t=56302

I only use external drives [actually internal drives mounted in USB enclosures with a fan] but use uTorrent. I can't believe it would be any different in Azereus. When you download, just save to the external drive instead of C:\My Music etc.

Good Luck

b, i'm on an iMac and never download to the documents folder. i use a desktop folder. it shouldn't matter where the folder is as long as you point Azureus to it.

Re: another azureus question..but not so dumb, I hope.

back from the dead I will revive this thread
Some how Azureus was just playing light jazz at me.....I open it to start a Dl and this quiet pulse started I thought it was my computer being noisy and bad til I turned it up. Azureus was the only app open. When I closed it the music stopped. Reopened the music was gone....I do not have this music on my HD...very weird.

but seriously... I would bet that your speakers picked up an AM radio signal.


or you're on the verge of completely losing it - try going outside for a nice walk

Ah, the old haunted mac syndrome!


It wasn't anything you were downloading? Do you use the Vuze interface or the Classic Azureus interface? If using the Vuze interface, I notice there is some beta thing about playback that is there. Perhaps you accidentally turned it on or it was trying to get your attention?
