How to migrate to a new Mac?

Post by heyheygig »

How do I migrate all my torrent files to a new Mac?

I recently got a new Mac and installed Transmission 2.82. All my completed torrents from my previous computer are housed on an external hard-drive in a 'Transmission' folder.

On my new computer, I've already opened Transmission and been to Preferences -> Transfers and changed the default location to my 'Transmission' folder, but I want this new version to recognize all my previous downloads and continue seeding them.

Any and all help with this would be greatly appreciated.


Cheers.

Here's a list of Transmission's support files. Hopefully, they are still available and can be copied from your previous computer.

~/Library/Application Support/Transmission (.torrents can be found here and can be re-added to Transmission. Use "Move Data File To..." (enclosing folder) and "Verify Local Data" as necessary.)
~/Library/Preferences/org.m0k.transmission.LSSharedFileList.plist
~/Library/Preferences/org.m0k.transmission.plist (re-do Preferences after installation)
~/Library/Caches/org.m0k.transmission

"~" = your home folder.

Thanks for your help!

When I navigate to my Library and look in Application Support, I don't see a Transmission folder. Any ideas where else that metadata would be located?

I figured it out. Just needed to use the Go To Folder.

Thank you very much for your help!
