well as u know we can specify where to download torrents
what would be cool if we could do this
example... i normally download to C:\downloads
but i wouldnt mind seeing this
label - videos / location is c:\downloads\videos
ie making a label would make a folder instead
or if i have an external hd
make a label called external then it would be instead of c:\downloads
it would download to my external hd
for example d:\
doesnt have to be labels..
could be groups or something
i would love to see this feature so i could then instantly download to my external
rather than downloading torrent... then moving it to external
Multiple download directories can be specified along with trackers that default there. For example
D:\Path1 <unspecified tracker>
My uTorrent always has a queue of atleast 25 torrents. It would be great if I could group torrents or perhaps create folders and put them in.
Also, I often select files to download instead of downloading the whole package and wasting bandwidth. Sometimes, there are hundreds of files inside a single torrent which makes it harder to keep track which ones I have downloaded and which ones I haven't since I move the downloaded files once 1:1 sharing ratio is fulfilled. So here too, grouping would help a lot... maybe like excel does.
Sometimes a a desired torrent can not be found in a certain RSS feed. Therefore a user is bound to find it on another source. If there was an option to creating a table of user-defined directories linked to certain tags, selecting a tag from a dropdown menu in the download popup window (when a .torrent file is opened) would then have an added function, as with the selection of a certain tag from the dropdown would automatically choose a predetermined download directory (also letting a user to determine a download directory apart from a tag - if a tag is defined at all - with a checkbox).
i'm downloading a few tv-shows from rss feeds automatically. and i wanna download them to different folders. for example for modern-family i wanna download to tv shows/modern-family folder, for glee tv shows/glee folder. every rss feeds are downloading to it's own directory so i can keep them organized.
In the torrent list it would be nifty if one could create headings in which to place torrents. Kind of like folders, it would be a handy way to drag and drop torrents prior to downloading and find after downloading. This would give users the ability to arrange the torrents in the list in their own way if the existing sorting options (name, cue #, added on, etc..) aren't sufficient. A collapsable/expandable tree layout would be a simple system eg.
Video--TV -- Must See
--- Family Guy.avi
| -- Get/watch later
| --- Justified.avi
|-Movies -- Must See
-- Get Later
Games-- Old Games
| -- New Release
Is an example of how I personally would use such a system.
Thanks in advance for considering my idea
Set different download folders for different file types.
We can pre decide folders for different types of files so that each time we dont have to select folders for our downloads.
When creating a label to set options such as:
-Set the download directory.
-Set speed up and down.
----Choose speed up and down
-Set ratio according to label.
----Choose new radio.
-Set color for this label.
What I mean exactly? Some examples:
downloading from 'musictracker.com' -> files go to D:\MUSIC
downloading from 'TVtracker.com' -> files go to E:\Videos\TV shows
downloading from 'generaltracker.com' -> files go to D:\Downloads
First of all. i would prefer the labels were persistent by default. Because i think its easier when Utorrent moves the downloaded files to download\"label"
Also i want to apply settings to the labes so i for some labels can use the Stop torrent upon completion feature. Other settings could also be relevant. for example some labeled torrent you might want to seed for 2.0 ratio . others you might want not to seed at all.
I'd like to automatically have a torrent moved to a specified folder when it's done downloading based on the label/tags it has. For example, if I have a torrent labelled with "movie" it would move the torrent to "E:\music" (some user defined folder) and a torrent labelled "music" would be moved to "F:\music". Or, for a simpler implementation, "E:\[user defined folder]\[label]', so torrents labelled "movies" would move to "E:\finished downloads\movies" and finished music torrents would be moved to "E:\finished downloads\music".
Most torrents people download go to the same few locations as usual. Instead of selecting and changing it every time simple scripting can be introduced to recognize that you are getting a film and send it to your movies DIR. You can still get the confirmation window. Its would be nice if there was some sort of a GUI speed dial that didn't involve the textual drop down menu. A little optional interface diversity wouldn't hurt.
It would also be nice to not allow torrent to proceed into the download list (hence you cant click ok) unless a location is manually chosen (and not just left auto from the previous download).
I would like to see a way that torrents can be automatically labeled (and subseqently organised) based on certain credentials. Ie all torrents from tracker foobar.com are labeled "foobs." Another example would be all torrents files that start contain "fobarTV" are labeled as "TV shows." Then by appending the label in the download selection, your torrents organise themselves.
This is in the 3.3 alpha already. Check it out. :)
It’s done with labels. Look at the preferences!
This feature is either extremely Unobvious, or it was pulled from 3.3. What happened? Whats the plan?

Dunno if this makes any difference commenting after this is completed, but a feature related directly to this:
Moving completed stuff to their labeled folders AFTER completion if you forgot to label them. Right now it's not possible and it's really irritating to an AD/HC person like myself that does other stuff a microsecond after clicking download on a torrent.
Jason Steele commented
This great, but the web client needs to allow a label to be specified when adding a torrent.
Oh so I sh!t brix when I saw this email... then I got really sad when I realized I wouldn't be receiving these upgrades because everything since 2.2.1 (build 25302) is absolutely terrible :(
If this *were* to be implemented, better exploit symlinks; I don't want duplicate files.

The "Append Label" option is not good enough for me, I use a hierarchical folder structure. This means it's not enough for me to move a torrent to a directory designated by its primary label, I need to sort it further down the ladder into a subfolder.
X:\ - The default download location
X:\Music - Where "Append Label" would sort my torrents to
X:\Music\<Artist> - Where I want to sort them
I'd like to see a similarly structurable tag system, and the ability to sort torrents into directories based on the tag tree.

I downloaded direct to an external that was partitioned for 2 computers (Which naturally had subfolders for each category and a sort folder.) But recently it started acting up. All the activity fry the poor lil guy. 430 G of music movies programs dead on arrival. I was wondering if there was any external that would be resistant to this. Terabyte of space is preferable but not a must!
I would love to have something linking the label to a predefined location, I download things in different folders based on what they are and usually this is tied to the label I add to them. Having to search through the incredible mess that the download location history field is each time is just useless and annoying...
I save my torrents to another system on my network for download. It would be great if utorrent would auto label my torrents if I saved them in a sub-folder in the auto load folder.
firstfile.torrent -> c:\torrents -> Don't set label
secondfile.torrent -> c:\torrents\music -> Set label to "music"
thirdfile.torrent -> c:\torrents\movies -> Set label to "movies"
fourthfile.torrent -> c:\torrents\games -> Set label to "games"
+1 it works for new torrents now as long (as you can label it quick enough)
can we expand this to handle already downloaded files as well.
You can move completed torrents using the "append torrent label" option. However I find if you add a label to a completed torrent it doesn't move, this should be fixed in so it'll move them automatically.
based on label *and/or* tracker!!!

Maybe the new save path can be set when the first label is selected. So when "C:\Download" is the default, and a new torrent is asking for labels, and I choose "Music" the save path would change to "C:\Download\Music" and then other tags would be added as wanted.
This is a feature that should have existed in uTorrent since version 1..It's a lot of hassle to always browse to directory u want to store your downloaded torrent to. Downloadingh everything to one dir creates a mess after just one week (at least for me)
this would be awesome!
even if you could just move whole labels at a time rather than having to go through each one individually.
(ie, right-click label A then click 'set download location..' to have it automatically move ALL the torrents under label A to the specified directory, rather than having to assign the folder for each torrent [which can get frustrating very quickly].)
it would be great to have a default directory for each label, rather than a subdirectory with the label's name, with unlabelled torrents or torrents belonging to an unspecified label going to the default directory.
all torrents under label "Music" go to "F:\Music"
all torrents under label "Videos" go to "D:\Videos"
.. everything else goes to default directory "J:\Downloads"
Under 'Directories' in the 'Preferences' menu, you can set your subdirectory if you tag the box labeled 'Append the torrent's label'. You still have to assign a label. Which makes it up to you how you want to set up the subdirectories by setting up your own labels. By Content, Tracker or something else.
Yep totally agree... stumbled on this one to!
You should be able to create categories and specify a folder, a name and maybe a color to it. This categorizes your torrents and uTorrent puts them in the right folder.
On external 'A', I have [anime from one tracker], [music from second tracker] and [anime from all other trackers]
External 'B' houses [music from all other trackers], and becomes the storage for [games] after they're removed as torrents(with the possibility of being added again later).
Internal drive has random applications and games downloaded to desktop before being flung to different C: folders.
If I could have a setting where a label downloads to a specific folder, this would save the mind-numbing task of sorting through 90 relocations at a time.
well i would love if i could download my torrent files into a diff folder since i dont use C: download
