How to transfer downloads in Vuze library to another computer

Hello, I'm getting a new computer and I would like to transfer downloads i have on Vuze to another computer

I have some questions about this though
People have told me I can just copy-paste the torrents/videos onto the new computer, but I don't understand how that'll work

When I open my videos, I just go to the Vuze library to open the videos I want to watch
If I just copy-paste the videos onto the new computer, how will the new Vuze I downloaded for that computer recognize that this torrent is downloaded already?

My question may sound weird, but I am basically wondering if there's a possible way to transfer torrents/videos onto the new computer without having to download them again

I have read the help forums on the vuzewiki, but I still don't really understand what they're trying to say

There's a new feature in the latest Beta of Vuze (see the Help menu option to join the Beta program) that allows you to backup and restore your Vuze configuration (Tools->Options->backup & restore)

It doesn't do anything with the actual downloads/transcodes, you still need to migrate these yourself to the same physical location on the new machine. It does however allow you to migrate your Vuze configuration by backing up the old stuff and restoring it on the new machine.

Can you explain to me what migrating the Vuze configuration is?

that'd be all the stuff you set up (things in your library, options, subscriptions, search templates)

So I can't just copy+paste the torrents on my old computer and put them into a 500GB harddrive and then copy+paste that back into the new computer?
