    Hi
    My laptop hard drive is getting full and I wish to make some space
    I am currently downloading 12 large files.

    Is it easy to move these to my external hard drive and continue downloading them?

    There's two options either move already downloaded programs to the ext hdd or just click on any of the buttons that all programs have untill you find anyghing regarding "DOWNLOADS" if your lucky it will let you browse to a new folder

    I am using Bittorrent 5.0.7

    If I move the downloadING torrent files to my external HD and point Bittorrent to that new location, will it find them next time I start up and continue to download?

    Well once the DL files are on your C drive, it's only a simple click-drag-and drop the files to a folder on your external HDD. Much like you would move a file to a floppy. I assume you're using windows.

    even those that are midway, i.e 23% complete?

    Once you move the files the worst thing that could happen is you need to download the torrent link again. Once you do that and set it to the same directory it will update itself with what you already have and then continue on from there.
