1 more question before I go and locate the configuration files... If I had done an upgrade, and in doing so the list of downloaded torrents were lost and nothing was displayed in the new version, wouldn't it mean that the original configuration files were overwritten, and that there is no other backup to be restored from? Or would it have renamed the old configuration files and if so, what would they be called, and where would they be found?
1) What version of BitComet are you using?
64 bit, v.1.32
2) What type of Internet connection do you have (ADSL, etc.)?
3) Do you have a modem? Do you use a router? What make and model are each one of them? Have you forwarded your port?
Motorola Modem, and buffalo wireless router, no idea what forwarded port means
4) If you have more than one router, be sure to mention the make and model of both devices, how are they connected (i.e. in which connector of both devices is the network cable plugged) and which one of the devices is connected to or is the modem.
Also, if you have more than one computer make sure to mention in this case, to which router is every one of them connected.
it is plugged in with a wire, not wireless
5) What version of Windows, Firewall and Antivirus do you use?
win 7 64 bit ultimate, windows firewall and router firewall, and microsoft security essentials
6) If you are asking about a specific torrent or file that you have downloaded, make sure that you include the complete torrent name, as well as the complete names of the files and their respective extensions/formats (e.g.: .rar, .wma, .bin, .cue, etc.).
all downloaded torrents have vanished
7) For speed-related issues, please run various speed tests at a site such as speedtest.net (make sure that no other computer is using your Internet connection and that all other programs - including BitComet - are closed, during the tests). Include the results, along with the settings that you are presently using, in your post, so that we may review and offer suggestions to improve its performance.
