Hello, Anyone looked into issue whether recent versions of uTorrent permanently (or semi) stores downloaded file names in certain *.dat files (not just the .torrent list, that can be deleted)? If I'm right, seems like violation of privacy. Using latest uTorrent 1.8.3 in Vista x64. Looked at couple posts about names of downloaded files showing up in other uTorrent files after the .torrent files had been deleted from the storage / settings location. Frankly, answers were all over the map & I got lost. Read uTorrent Help file about different Remove options from menu. Haven't played w/ this for weeks & weeks, but it seems ? no matter WHICH method / option is selected from remove menu, some d/l file names still show, esp in resume.dat or BU copy of it (maybe others). Yes, have to use a binary file reader, but the d/l'd file names & much other data are still there. It's nothing to open one of those files. Help section on "Remove" talks about how .torrent files/ data will be removed from UI, .torrent list, etc. Does NOT discuss how or when this info is stored in above mentioned files. MAYBE haven't hit on the right combo / selection to purge these data from .dat files, or keep it from being stored in them in the 1st place, but gave it my best shot. Thanks.
