This guide is written with the intent of the "Folder Structure" to be created on the system hard drive (C:\).
The Folder Structure for uTorrent is where the .torrent files, and the actual TV Series Episode files to be downloaded will be processed. There are three (3) folders required with the use of these guides for customizing the uTorrent program.
- My Downloads
- Completed Downloads
- New Downloads
- torrent Files
The additional information listed below is for a basic understanding of how uTorrent works with this folder structure, and for easing through the transition of; the installation and initial set-up, to the actual use of Media Center Master with uTorrent.
The “uTorrent” folder is created to group the three (3) required folders together. The “torrent Files” Folder is for a .torrent file used for downloading a TV Series episode. Putting it simple, it is a control file uTorrent needs to gather all the pieces of a file to reassemble it back together. After the .torrent file has been read, it will be deleted. The “New Downloads” folder is where uTorrent will store New TV Series Episode files while they are being downloaded. After a download is complete, uTorrent will move the completed download to the “Completed Downloads” folder. It is at this location where Media Center Master will pick it up and process the completed TV Series Episode for archiving.
The folders created here are just temporary storage areas. They are used just for the processing of downloads. After processing is complete there is no data left in these folders. They should be empty when there is no download activity.
