How to Restore Torrent Files
The Recycle Bin has a symbol on it like this one. (Recycle image by sarkee from

If you accidentally delete a file with the .torrent extension while you're downloading a Torrent, it's often a simple matter to correct the situation. The .torrent file is simply your link to the file you're downloading. For example, if you are using a Torrent to download a movie but delete the .torrent file, that doesn't mean the movie itself is deleted; it only means that the movie may not be complete yet.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Double-click your Recycle Bin on your desktop. Right-click on the .torrent file you see there.

  2. 2

    Select "Restore" and the file vanishes from the Recycle Bin.

  3. 3

    Click "Start" in Windows and select "My Documents." Double-click the "Torrents" folder.

  4. 4

    Double-click the folder marked ".torrents" next. Right-click on the .torrent file you restored earlier and select "Open." Your Torrent program will load automatically and resume the download of your file.
