BitTorrent - Change default location for storing downloads

May 2016

BitTorrent is download management software used widely across the globe. If the location of files downloaded from the internet is not changed, BitTorrent saves them in a default location. For files to be stored in a different location, changes have to be made to BitTorrent configuration settings. To change the location of downloaded files, the directory needs to be specified in the BitTorrent preferences tab. It is also possible to change the location for new downloads as well as downloads already carried out through the directory configuration settings. BitTorrent has proved useful for users of P2P.

To change the location of your download files under BitTorrent:
  • Click on the Options menu > Preferences > Directories.

  • Tick the box next to "Put new Downloads in:" and simply select the path for the new location.
  • Validate with the OK button.
  • Note that you can configure BitTorrent to automatically move downloads to the folder of your choice.
  • Tick the box next to " Move completed downloads to:" and select the path of the new location.
