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.
If uTorrent starts whilst you are offline, your entire seeding collection will be corrupted and it can take many hours, even days to recover.
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.
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.
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.
LANTorrent can backup your torrent configuration, in the following ways:
- On startup
- On Close
- At predefined intervals
You can choose how many backups you wish to retain.
If you happen to corrupt your configuration, just choose a backup and click restore and you are back up and running.
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.
Runs on Windows and requires .Net 4.5
