I want to organize my downloads per studio or actor, so I would need to create subfolders ( I am currently storing them in the Download folder). However, as soon as I do that, my torrent software (deluge) does not find the files that are beyond one sublevel.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

I store the videos & other files that I want to keep in a separate directory (with all the subfolders I need for the various studios/actors), and not in the download folder used by my torrent program.  Once I've reached the desired ratio for any given torrent (...or see that there are no more leechers for it), I either move it to that other directory (if I like and want to keep it) to file in whatever appropriate subfolder I want, or otherwise I'll just delete it altogether if I don't care for it.  For example, sometimes I may download freeleech files just for the ratio boost, with no intention of keeping it, or even watching it.  Those files never get stored in my other directory and just get deleted when I've reached the desired ratio.

Otherwise, there is no way (that I am aware of) that you can move things around into subfolders of your torrent programs download folder, and still expect for the client to be able to find them for seeding/uploading.

First you need to realise that computers are stupid. If you move a downloaded file you need to let your torrent client know.

Un utorrent you change the Download Location. In Deluge I believe there is a similar thing or perhaps the 'Move Storage'

There is absolutely no need to keep everything in the folder you download to.

I find it easier to change the folder to save to before starting to download. You don't need to use a single default folder.

I find it easier to change the folder to save to before starting to download. You don't need to use a single default folder.

So then are you saying, for example, that if you download 5 different videos from 5 different studios, and change the download folder location 5 different times for each video you download so that they go into various different subfolders, that the torrent program will know to upload/seed from those 5 different locations simultaneously because it remembers each subfolder you downloaded to?  If so, I did not realize that was even possible and have just learned something new.

Otherwise, what seems easier to me is to just keep the same ONE download folder, then move the file to whatever subfolder you want once you're done downloading & seeding it to your desired ratio.  This way there's no need to tinker around with the torrent program settings before downloading each video (or other file) you want to snatch.

I am saying exactly that - but obviously not if the movies are all in one torrent. You can, theoretically, have infinite different download locations (actually 'infinite' might be OTT) all going at the same time.

I don't know how exactly your torrent client is set up but when I open a torrent file in uTorrent it asks me where I want to download to. I just change the location to, say, my Falcon folder or my Catalina folder.It can be any location on my computer, any hard drive, partition, folder, sub-folder.

uTorrent offers a handy drop-down list of the most recently used folders or a Find button to look for the folder you want to save to.

If you download to one folder and then decide to move the file, uTorrent lists it as missing. You then just go to Advanced and change the location by pointing uTorrent to the new location and it will happily carry on seeding.


Forgot your second point. If you download to a specific folder, there is no need to move it (unless you change your filing system) so the file is just sitting there if you need to help with a seed.

Right-click over a torrent in the torrent app and you can change it's location - utorrent (and others does it for you and remembers that new location).

One can also get to see those different locations on disks to the main view next to ratio/completed/etc.

Utorrent is actually pretty efficient file handler compared to other apps, when one moves more than few files or large number of files other apps stop download/upload activities because the I/O is at max, but not utorrent - it keeps all activities going Smiley

I have the folders of the studios that I use to download already created:

When I finish a download, I rename the file following the pattern "Scene Name - Actors" and move them to the corresponding studio folder, it looks like this:

After moving the file, I go back to Utorrent and relocate the file to continue seeding. The procedure to do this is in this tutorial:

Hope this can help you Smiley

One can do the whole renaming in utorrent:

Pause the torrent
See content tab of the torrent
right-click and rename
(it's usually good to rename the "filename" in utors main view as well (copy paste)
Resume the torrent and Utor will rename the file to which name was given to it in the content tab.
right click the torrent and choose a location for it.

Just after I download videos and then they all have _ or - or whatever I don't like, I use Magic File Renamer so I can change all those symbols I don't want in all files at once or I can delete first or last letters or numbers, or I can add studio name at the front of all files at once or change letter case.
If I want to make a list of all files I have, I use CopyFilenames that goes directly to filemanager in your PC so you do Ctrl+A, right mouse click and choose copy filenames and paste them to word document or paste them to decsription when you want to upload collection of files. It's very handy  Cool
Then I usually put date first (year, month, day), title of video, actors. Sometimes specially if I upload videos as well, I put studio name as well.
For mormonboyz where each Elder has their own story, I put elder's name, number of chapter, other Elder's names if there are more and then title.
But if you do whole siterips like I do with few of studios, it gets pretty crazy

It's easy to make custom folders, but it's tedious. You need to have a basic knowledge in Photoshop to do. Try to do this:

- Enter the studios' websites, right click on the logo to open the image in a new tab and save the logo images of the studios you have.
- Follow this tutorial: and save the image as .png after you edit
- Go to some website that converts .png to .ico and save the .ico files to a folder that you will never move from place to place. I usually create an "Icons" folder in the "Windows" folder and put the icons there.
- After saving the .ico in the folder for them, you go in the folder of the studios, properties, customize and choose the icon that you just made.

And it's ready!

I have these icons to share and I can do some other you want, send me a message with the name of the studios that you want the folder that I upload the .png and I send you. Then you just convert it to .ico, save it to the folder that you can not move and finally change the folders icon.
