    I need to transfer my torrents from a Windows XP computer to a Windows 8 computer. On the first computer the folder containing the Bit Torrent application data is located at C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application Data. Where on the Windows 8 computer do I put this folder? I think I'm supposed to put it in the same place but I can not find the right path. I installed Bit Torrent on the Windows 8 computer and it puts data in C:\Users\MyName\AppData\Roaming\BitTorrent. Should I place the contents of the first BitTorrent folder in this place?

    Thanks for your help.
