How to Save Half-Downloaded Torrent files?

I am downloading few files via torrent. Some files have been downloaded and most of the other files are half downloaded (eg. 250 MB downloaded out of 400 MB). Now, I really need to format my HDD, and re-install windows. :-(

Is there any way that to save all the half downloaded files, so when HDD is formatted and windows is re-installed, I won't need to download them again ? Any help would be appreciated.

    @Ross, I wonder what is the need to "copy" the torrent client ? I might "install" it. And do I have to copy only the main application (.exe) file or some other files as well?

    @Ross, Earthlinkz, I made some mistake. I have formatted my HDD and I copied only the main exe file of utorrent. It didn't work. Should had copied the whole folder. :(. Anyways... The files that were fully downloaded are fine but the ones which were half downloaded are no more. But thanks for your advice. At least I now know what to do next time I format my HDD.

    you may need to copy the entire folder eg goto C:\Program Files then (assuming your client is bittorrent) copy the entire bittorrent folder because some clients save where they are in that folder and if you dont it may over-write the files and take as long as normal

Additional to ross solution:
if you are using Utorrent you can copy the files where you put or saved the downloaded files then in your start menu>run>%appdata% then copy the utorrent folder be sure to remember where you copy those files so you can remember where to paste it after formatting.. then from there by pasting those files your old settings will be restored..

another is you can just copy the folder where your half downloaded files are located and after formatting just paste it anywhere and download the torrent file again and target it to where you pasted your half downloaded files then torrent will do hash check and your download will be restored back to where it stopped. be sure it was same files as before :) if you cant remember then do the first one :)

Tips downloading torrents


What is a torrent?


first of all it is a method of downloading absolutely anything (you name it you have it) from internet when you search for software, audio, movies you will sometimes accidental stumble up into a torrent site but when you download the file it will be a very small fie size in kilobytes but this fill contains all the file locations that a particular file resides it cold contain 1000 of users information worldwide.

How does it happen?


a person might upload a file as a torrent and that person is called a "seed" because he has 100% of the file will say another person finds this torrent and start downloading it this person is considered as a "leecher" assume he has downloaded the file about 25%, When another 3rd person starts downloading this file he can retrieve this file from both the seeder and leecher and the 3rd person will also contribute to other people so by downloading a torrent you are taking the file and *** well as you are helping to upload it to another person
When a leecher has downloaded the file 100% that person becomes a seeder

How to download


You need a torrent client to download torrent files (torrent extension is *.torrent)
Example
Utorrent-a small light weight torrent client
Azureus-a java based torrent client

What Should I look for when downloading torrents?


1. Find a good site (the hardest )


Because torrents are a popular way of spreading viruses (Trojan horse) you must be careful when you are selecting the site

My recommendations’ are
For software/movies/games/TV shows-btjunkie.com, www.mininova.com,www.isohunt.com
For high quality movies-axxo.superfundo.com

2. Download the torrent with highest number of seed not the leecher

when you do this you are on the safe side because more people have the complete file

3. Be careful when downloading torrents that contains zip or rar format

some torrents are there to fool you after downloading it requires a password witch you can’t find

4. Read all comments before downloading a torrent

this will be very help full for you before you download a big file example in a movie torrent comment some people will comment about the quality of the movie sound quality or is it a camera copy saving you valuable time

How to download torrents


First you need :µTorrent - a (very) tiny BitTorrent client Download and install it.There are many other Torrent clients but i find this the best one.
Then you need a torrent site here you go:http://thepiratebay.org/top Now search for what you Movies,Games,Music etc.Download the Torrent file and open with Utorrent your download should have now started in Utorrent.

How do I download files using BitTorrent?Just like you need a URL like 'www.google.com' to go to a web site and download content, you need a 'torrent file', a small file that tells the BitTorrent client the necessary info to download the content you want. This is generally obtained from a torrent website. Many websites offer torrents as one method of downloading files. For example,OpenOffice.org, a free alternative to Microsoft Office, can be downloaded using BitTorrent. Other sites, like legaltorrents.com, offer torrents of all kinds of things - these sites are just repositories of torrents and usually don't actually create any of the content available. They are known as torrent indexers.
Once you've obtained a torrent file, you simply need to import it into µTorrent. There are several ways of doing this.
  • Drag and drop the torrent file you downloaded onto µTorrent's window.
  • Choose to open the torrent file instead of saving it to your computer. If you have associated µTorrent with .torrent files, this will work. µTorrent asks on first run if you want to do this, but if you said no, you can go to Options, Preferences and click button labeled Associate with .torrent files to reassociate it.
But before you start downloading, make sure you've followed the µTorrent Setup Guide. It doesn't take long and will help ensure that your torrent experience is faster and more consistent.

I downloaded smackdown vs raw 2011 pc gameswinrar file in torrent.when i am instaling it it is asking me a password.what is that?


It is very possible that the torrent you downloaded is just a bad torrent.

Open your torrent client and right click on the completed download for Smackdown Vs. Raw 2011, choose "open containing folder" in the folder (if the torrent is a complete torrent) there should be a file called something like- Crack.exe, Password Crack, Password, or something similar. Most torrents have a program that generates the password, so check in there.

Hopefully this helped!

How do i download a dvd torrent from mininova ect and save it to disc??????? am new to all this


you'll need a torrent program, utorrent or bit torrent are 2 common ones. Then go to a torrent site, something like piratebay .org and search for what you want. once you download the files, you'll need some codecs probabs, just google search for the codec for what ever file type you downloaded, and use your DVD burning software to put it on a disk.
