    you can change the path of the torrent and it will find it and continue the download. i dont remember exactly where because i dont use that program.

    Options>Preferences>Directories and then you can set where it puts the downloads. You may have to restart the torrent file from scratch and then it'll just run its check and then resume.

    1- Plug the hard drive
    2- Change the path of the correct download directory
    3- Right-click your download and click "Force re-check"

    µTorrent should check the integrety of the file and your download should resume.

    To prevent this from happening again, download your torrents on your local hard drive then copy them over the external when its finished like I do. Or you could try and assign a permanent drive letter to the external hard drive under "Computer management > Disk Management":
