LANTorrent seed you torrents from NAS without corruption

June 18th, 2015 No comments

The Scenario

I have been a long time user of uTorrent. I run it on my laptop that has limited storage, so if you want to keep seeding you have to relocate your downloaded files to an external drive. I use a wifi connected NAS type storage.

The problem

If uTorrent starts whilst you are offline, your entire seeding collection will be corrupted and it can take many hours, even days to recover.

The solution

LANTorrent

LANTorrent

>> DOWNLOAD FOR FREE HERE <<

LANTorrent is a wrapper for you existing torrent application that adds a layer of protection to stop you corrupting your torrent setup, and recovering when it does.

Features

Automatic startup 

You can set it so LANTorrent will start your preferred Torrent application when it starts. Combine that with setting LANTorrent to starts when windows starts, you can now have LANTorrent control the starting of your app.

Startup Protection

If you start your torrent application when off the network it will corrupt your configuration.

If you have LANTorrent set to start your torrent app, LANTorrent will look for your network drive. If the network drive is not accessible it assumes that you are disconnected and will not start your torrent application. This will stop you from accidentally destroying your seeding library.

Backup

LANTorrent can backup your torrent configuration, in the following ways:

  1. On startup
  2. On Close
  3. At predefined intervals

You can choose how many backups you wish to retain.

Restore

If you happen to corrupt your configuration, just choose a backup and click restore and you are back up and running.

Shutdown

LANTorrent monitors the torrent application and will close itself (and perform an on close backup if set), when it detects that the torrent application has closed.

Compatibility

Runs on Windows and requires .Net 4.5

Supported Torrent Clients

  1. uTorrent
  2. Vuze
  3. BitTorrent
  4. BitLord
  5. Deluge
  6. qBittorent
  7. tixati

Clean the Windows Installer Folder

June 1st, 2015 3 comments

Problem

The c:\Windows\Installer folder contains windows .msi installers and .msp patch files that are used when installing and updating software on your windows computer.

Over time as more and more programs are patched the size of this directory gets very large and some of the files are actually orphaned and no longer required on your system.

The problem is you cannot just delete the entire directory as these files are used when upgrading or uninstalling your software. What you need to do is only delete those files that are not in use any more

Solution

Patch Cleaner

This is a simple piece of software that will clean your windows installer folder in one easy click.

If you are unsure of the program just use the move function to move the detected orphaned patches off onto an external drive. If the program has done something wrong you can just copy them back.

This software is 100% free. >> Download Here <<
