I don't remember sleepwalking, but this morning I found transmission-daemon uninstalled. I've reinstalled it, but when I open it up through the web interface or transgui, there are no torrents listed. I assume I've lost them, but just in case, where is this data supposed to be stored?

This data is stored in /var/lib/transmission-daemon/info (requires root access to view, use sudo from the command line or install nautilus-gksu).

In my case depressingly empty.
