-{{:​mm_03.png|}} 
- 
-  * //Import Unfinished Download:// <​html><​span id="​import">​Allows</​span></​html>​ you to import unfinished files, for those downloaded by the following clients: BitComet, µTorrent and Xunlei.\\ (Starting with v.1.23 BitComet is able to import unfinished downloads from any other client. In order to enable that you'll have to choose //All files// in the drop-down box where you can choose the file extension type. The difference is that for the 3 above stated clients, once you point the unfinished file or the folder containing unfinished files, BitComet will search and locate automatically the .torrent file; on the other hand for the files generated by other clients or for files which don't have a specific extension attached - e.g. //.!ut// - you will have to manually navigate to the location which contains the .torrent file, since BitComet can't determine the downloading application and therefore neither the directory containing the .torrent files.)\\ ​ First you'll have to select an unfinished file or a folder containing unfinished files. ​ 
- 
-{{:​mm_04.png|}} 
- 
-After pressing "​Next"​ BitComet will automatically start to search for the torrent(s) corresponding to the unfinished file(s) you selected in the previous step. Alternatively,​ you can check the check-box before the "//Use specified .torrent//"​ option, to select a .torrent file residing on the local storage media. ​ 
- 
-After BitComet finds the necessary .torrent file(s) or after you select a .torrent file, by pressing "​Finish"​ the task will be created and added to the Task List. An automatic hash-check will be performed and the task will pick up from the last percentage it had when it last stopped in the previous client. ​
