hey all, i just started using azureus and it isnt working well, for some reason it automatically downloads to my doccuments (which is in my D drive not my C) and i dont have much room in my D drive so it always stops, when i open up the torrent i save it directly onto my C drive, but it will still download to my doccuments, how can i fix this???

Use the config wizard. You shouldnt download things that aren't free shareware programs or things that you dont allready own. Geekstogo cant and will not support illegal software or the downloading of illegal software etc.

Actually i dont know of any software house that develops free software that has agreed to the use of azureus to distribute their product, and their are uses for bit torrent technology not azureus p2p sharing. You shouldnt use it and you shouldnt ask for help with it on an internet forum, you should know that geekstogo cant support illegal downloading.

okay i dont mean to sound ungreatfull coz u did help me out but seriously

firstly im not asking for help with illegal downloading, as i said there are many legal uses for such an application, u could download freeware software on it (or free trial versions) you could have made a file (ie home video) that you want to transfer from 1 computer to another, and the file could be too big for a disk which is why u create a torrent file for it and download it to the other computer (a VERY impractical use but still a legal one)

secondly u fixed my problem pretty quickly for someone who doesnt condone the use of such programs, so i gotta ask how do u know azureus so well if u dont download illegally and cant think of ne legal uses for it???

no offense, u did fix my problem and i am greatfull but dont give me a box and tell me not to open it
