I gave that a try, but am not advanced enough to make it work though. I first 
tried rtorrent torrent. It began a download but did not see my files from
the already downloaded torrent being transferred over.

I tried rtorrent -b torrent

then tried rtorrent -b -i torrent

neither connected to my files.

If what I am doing wrong is something obvious let me know I will try it. Have manually 
copied the files after using lsof to find the inodes, so am asking mostly
from curiousity whether I missed something when trying your suggestion.
