uTorrent and Windows 7

    Question

  • When I run uTorrent in Windows 7 it will work for a while but then show a message in the bottom of the screen that says disk overloaded 100% does anyone know what this is or how to fix it. I have tried increasing the disk cache to 1000 MB but that only fixes it for a few minutes. Thanks.

    Hi,

     

    This is a known issue on uTorrent’s side.

     

    For your reference:

     

    uTorrents FAQ (What does Disk Overloaded in the status bar mean?)

     

    Hope it helps.

  • I get the disk overloaded message in XP and Vista too, so it's not a Windows 7 issue. The problem is mentioned in the FAQ on uTorrents homepage.

  • How much HDD space do you have left?

    I have been running uTorrent now for over a week without disconnecting...

  • Not had that problem, sorry. Had utorrent installed since the beta and with it all on defaults. No issues yet that actualy relate to utorrent.

  • Right now I have 46GB free. I have got it to run for a while now by increasing the cache to 2000MB and unchecking the "Disable Windows caching of disk reads/writes" option. Also I did not have this problem on Vista or XP. Thanks for the response.

  • Using Bit Torrent. No trouble. Check your disk.

  • Are you partitioned with your torrents files going into small disk storage?

  • No I have it on my primary partition and plenty of free space. I ran a bunch of tests on my hard drive, with no errors. Increasing the cache to 2000MB apparently fixed it though. Thanks for the responses though.
