I've been searching for half an hour.

For some reason, my winScp lost it's data file.

I had a custom command to create a torrent file. Can't find the instructions to create it again anywhere.

Can someone direct me to where it is?

Thanks,

Tanger

Update: I been looking around and I think I found this:
mktorrent -p -a announce URL File_you_want_To_use

But it doesn't work. I'm missing "!" maybe?
Any help would be appreciated.

I do not know what mktorrent does and what arguments does it expect, but maybe:
mktorrent -p -a "!?Announce URL:?!" "!"

I "think" this is what ended up working

mktorrent -p -a "Announce URL" "!"

I'll test it later today and report back if it doesn't work....

Thank you prikryl for the quick response and the help

Ok, I remembered I had an image backup and got the winscp.ini file and that saved the day. I'm coping the string here in the hopes it'll help someone else.

mktorrent -a 'annouce url in http format' -p -l 21 !&

the ' is exactly as it was. Also, apply to directories was checked.

Happy torrent creating!
