Post Restarting your torrents
Due to the changes in the way that torrents are tracked, you will need to restart your uploads and downloads.
Firstly remove the old downloads / uploads from your client.

There is no need to delete the data as that will be re-checked when the torrent is restarted.



Find the torrent you were downloading or seeding on the site, using the browse torrents or search facility (you can also search on torrents uploaded by user, ie. yourself!)


or browse for the torrent in the torrents list


Click the green arrow to download the torrent file. When prompted, click open.


Your torrent client will now go through the process of checking your existing files


And will then start re-downloading / re-seeding


Repeat for all of your existing torrents.

Simon's directions below work perfectly in most cases.

But if you are using uTorrent and it is configured it to use separate directories for partial torrent data and complete torrent data, the process is slightly more complicated:

1. Start uTorrent. Go to Options --> Preferences, and choose the Directories panel. Write down the directories you are using for new downloads, completed downloads, newly-stored torrents, and torrents for finished jobs.

2. Exit uTorrent.

3. If you are using different directories for newly-stored torrents and torrents for finished jobs, delete the old (pre-July 2008) Genesis torrents from the directory for finished jobs.

4. If you are using different directories for new downloads and completed downloads, open the directory that contains completed downloads. Under this directory, you will see one subdirectory for each download you have completed. Move these subdirectories from this location to the directory used for new dowloads . (You can use the mouse to drag them. For example, you would move the file C:\uTorrent\Complete\GenesisBBC to C:\uTorrent\Partial\GenesisBBC.)

5. Start uTorrent and follow Simon's directions below.
