As I said earlier uTorrent 1.8.5+ can use magnet links options - preferences- associate with magnet URLs.

I thought the same, but for the past few days, I've been using Magnetic links and haven't faced a problem

Switch to something else instead of uTorrent then or check its preferences...

Yeah you get the same thing, but if there is a collection of things you are seeking and you already have two of them, which weighs over 2 GB, this would suck wouldn't it? As explained by the OP

That's quite a niche scenario, I can understand why TPB did it, keeps the load down by a huge proportion.

It's nice to see that the piratebay actually loads now, also if anyone else out there is a bit peculiar about what version of uTorrent they use magnet links are added in uTorrent 1.8.5, personally I've been using 1.6 for 5 years I can't stand the horrible UI in uTorrent 2+, but 1.8 still has the old school UI.

Edit: Satukoro if you stop the download you should be able to right click the files and click relocate?

Thanks, I seem to have missed that option. I've taken to moving the files after they've downloaded to my Downloads directory.
