Alternatively you can change the download folder for all torrents by going to the Options menu -> Settings -> Folders.

Here you can set all kinds of folders you need: you can create a folder for incomplete files or create a folder that the program will monitor to automatically add torrents as soon as they are inside.


5. Tips for increasing the download speed

If your torrents are progressing slowly despite all the advice in this guide, below you can find some "tricks of the trade" to always download at maximum speed.

5.1 - Always choose torrents with many sources complete (seed): one of the best tips you can apply, since it is useless to try to download a torrent at high speed if it is not widespread or has been online for a few hours. When looking for torrents on the Internet make sure that the seeds (ie the users who have the complete file) are numerous, at least 200. With such a large number of users with a complete source, the download will always be very fast.

5.2 - Do not download when the network Internet it is used by other programs / devices / PCs: if you have optical fiber you may not be affected by the problem, but if you have a connection below 20 Megabits per second you could run into slowdowns in the download if you have other devices that use a lot of bandwidth: console, Smart TV, WiFi decoder, TV Box and other PCs.

5.3 - Download at night: therect daughter of the previous point, I recommend that you download the largest torrents in the night hours, so as to minimize the risk of removing someone's band or seeing the torrent slow down due to daily activity.
