Ubuntu – How to export/import torrent in transmission in Ubuntu


I need to move a couple of torrent transmissions to another idle computer. I have copied all the downloading files into (equivalent) ~/Downloads of machine 2 but the Transmission client on machine 2 fails to recognize the torrent files of machine 1.

So it seems that I need also to export/import other torrent files. Just wondering which and where they are?

Best Answer

  1. Copy the .torrent files to a staging area.
  2. Open the torrent files in machine 2.
  3. Pause the torrent.
  4. Move the partially completed torrents from machine 1 where machine 2 has started them - in ubuntu this is ~/.config/transmission/torrents by default
  5. Force recheck or "Verify local data".
