I'd like to know how can I keep my old Transmission data when I do a new system installation.

Is there any way to keep my statistics, rate upload/download, etc., and use them in my new installation?

Copy the folder located at /home/your-user-name/.config/transmission/ and place it at the same path location on your new installation.

Simplest way would be to have an Ubuntu One account and mark that folder as a Cloud Folder, syncing the configuration across installations.

Thanks a lot, Jacob. I tried to find the folder ".transmission" in my home, but I didn't look for it into ".config". – reygecko Mar 18 '12 at 10:09
